Always tasty breakfast and good value with large portions

Usually eat breakfast at Billy's at least once when attending Musikfest. There is usually a line, but this time we had 6 in our party and the hostess waited in vain for their only large table to open up, before finally putting two small tables together for us. Took over 40 min. waiting in the... read more

We've been here several times, and each time we are greeted and seated timely. Sweet or savory? Both are great!

The place gets packed for good reason. There's so many good things on the menu, it's hard to decide what to order. I've never heard anyone say they haven't liked their food.

I did not expect such a creative menu from what looked like a standard greasy spoon diner. I had the "vegan"esque omelette, with egg whites, veggies, sundried tomatoes & goat cheese. Delish & huge - I could only finish half. Good coffee that was readily refilled, and a very pleasant staff. At a neighboring table, a customer asked for something... More

I wake up early and KNOW that I need Billys Diner that morning. You're greeted warmly by Billy himself or any of his wonderful staff. I feel the need the indulge when I'm there and always go for the Billy Kristo ( pictured) or Nutella French Toast. The omelettes are all fresh with beautiful crispy homefries. You can't go wrong...

If you like diner food, then you will probably enjoy your meal. If you are a fan of flavor and quality, you will absolutely hate it. Billys Downtown Diner is one of the worst breakfast spots in the Lehigh Valley. I ordered French Toast, and found a piece of cheese, two chocolate chips, and part of an onion in my... More

Walked past this to go to Starbucks, but they hadn't opened yet, so we came back to Billy's, glad we did. Great breakfast, lots of food and very tasty. Restaurant is popular, crowded. Outside seating. Worth a trip.

Went to Billy's on a whim and wanted to try a different place. Got a seat right away with no waiting. Wait staff got to us right away and asked for our beverage. Great interesting menu items that all sounded really good. Wife had the Cabo Wabo omelet, delicious with a little heat. I had the blueberry pancakes which were... More

This is a go-to place for my mom's group when we get together to celebrate birthdays! Delicious food, attentive service. My only complaint is their unwillingness to separate checks - sometimes they will do it, sometimes they won't - you never know. The servers tell us it depends on whether the owner/manager is in the mood.
