Best Breakfast in Shepherdstown

Betty's is a Shepherdstown institution. Try the chipped beef and gravy, the buffalo chips, or the all lump crab cakes. You will not be disappointed. Cash only, be prepared to wait a little on weekends.

Stopped by this diner for a quick bite to eat. Very good comfort food. I had the roast beef sandwich, very good! My wife had the crab cake sandwich, which she said was excellent. Definitely would eat here again.

Although small and a little cramped, you can't beat Betty's for a great breakfast! One of their specialties is their Sausage Gravy and Biscuits and it is absolutely delicious. They also have great breakfast potatoes and of course the coffee is good and on the strong side, just the way a good breakfast cafe' should be!

I've only had breakfast at Betty's, and I can tell you it's always been great. Very reasonably priced, especially with the amount of food you get!

Went here with family for breakfast. We didn't have very high expectations. What a great meal! All five of us were very happy with the quality of the food, and the service.

We went here for lunch. We had heard about the model train that circles the dining room, and thought our grandson would enjoy it. The train was about the only thing this place has going for it. We stopped in for lunch during the week and it was not crowded. A few minutes after we were seated, the people in... More

We go to Betty's whenever we go to Shepherdstown. The hot cakes are the best I think I have ever had. My husband loves the country Ham. Everything we have had at Betty's is delicious. The prices are very reasonable.o

Betty's is, and from the look of things, will always be, the favorite spot for an old-fashioned, homecooked breakfast in Shepherdstown. The food is fresh and good. These folks don't mess with the basics. There's no need. College students, young families and local elders alike patiently wait for a table or spot at the counter when things get busy on... More

It's fun to go to a local popular spot and this is very basic and homey - however described as great for breakfast and it was disappointing - I've had much better breakfasts at any number of similar places in the U.S.
