When we find ourselves returning home from a visit to the Oregon coast, we always make it a point to stop at Bette's Place for breakfast. The staff is great. They are always friendly and efficient. The food, well all I can say, you need to be hungry when you visit Bette's. The breakfast menu has a good variety of... More

The food was great, and portions huge. The fresh cinnamon role was the size of a chicago softball, and delicious (get the nuts on it). Also had the crab eggs benedict -- big chunks of fresh crab, hollandaise, really good.

I don't get why this place is so highly rated. to me, it's just not that great. There are lots of good places to eat in Hood River and this one is not in the top 25 in my book. I was disappointed in the service and in the food. Not bad by any means, but average. Very average.

YUM, YUM YUM!! That's all I have to say! The maple bars are fantastic! The service is great! We went twice on our trip to Hood River. Both times it was busy, but we never had to wait for a table, and our service was still top notch! Must go again!

I have eaten only breakfasts at Bette's for as long as I can remember. Our Toastmasters Club meets there every Thursday at 6:30 and they have already been open for an hour and a half. The breakfast menu has something that everyone will like from fruit to hash. This is a quality place.

After several hours of freeway traveling, we pulled off in Hood River to find a diner for typical comfort food. Winding up the hill through the city, we came upon Bette’s and decided to give it a try. Locals seem to know the quality of this place as the restaurant was filled even though it was mid-afternoon and people kept... More

Our breakfast was great- very popular spot with locals. The restaurant "goes back" into the interior, so there are plenty of places to sit, and there is even in "inside outdoor café" style eating area. The menu had so many options it was hard for me to decide. I chose a spinach & mushroom omelet with fresh fruit and a... More

I wish I didn’t have to type a minimum of 100 characters to critique this place because all I really have to say is, “Ugh.”   Bland seasoning. Impossibly immense servings. Watery coffee. The public restrooms open next to the tables outside the restaurant proper. Double “ugh.” After waiting 20 minutes to be seated, all we got was some ruddy-faced... More

We were looking for a place to have breakfast before heading up to one of the local orchards for the day and we were pleasantly surprised at Bette's Place. Bette's has a nice quiet atmosphere and great food. We had the Coconut-Banana-Macadamia nut French toast and the bacon and eggs breakfast; plenty of food for the price. We'll definitely go... More
