Hardest Choice-What to Order

Every time I visit Billy's my hardest decision is whether to order from the breakfast menu or the lunch menu. Everything sounds so yummy and indeed I've never been disappointed.

Restaurant has a nice breakfast menu, but somewhat high priced. When we were there early for a weekend breakfast, the music was uncomfortably loud and the table next to us and ourselves asked the waitress to turn the volume down. The waitress and manager agreed it was too loud, but were not able to turn down the volume, because the... More

We visited for breakfast on a Sunday morning about 9:30 am and we were able to get seated right away (party of 2). Seems small and very busy! I noticed that larger parties made reservations. I had Mic's Cannoli Tower (I think I gained 5 lbs after eating it) & it was so good! I also had a peep-uccino (cappuccino... More

Great breakfast creations and very quick service! We loved our meals and all of the fun options on the menu. They also had green tea, which was a plus for me. Looking forward to our next dining experience at Billy's.

Glad we had a reservation, long line outside. Seating very crowded and space very small. Great food and great variety, pancakes to lox and everything in between. Service was up and down, but very friendly. Kind of pricey but the food is good. Make a reservation !!!

We visited Billy's on a recent Sunday morning for breakfast. Service was excellent. Our various orders of Blueberry Pancakes, Eggs Benedict, Lox n Bagels, Omelets etc were excellent, portions large and prices reasonable. Reservations, which we had are highly recommended as is this restaurant.

The orange juice is fresh squeezed and AMAZING!! All the food is also delicious. I always get omelets, but they also have yummy pancakes. The service is great, too. I would highly recommend. This is my favorite place to go for brunch in Bethlehem.

We ate in this diner right in the middle of Bethlehem as were were passing through. It is reminiscent of the diners of old and very typical in terms of food and service, both of which we found to be very good. We were there for lunch but they had a breakfast menu that can be ordered at breakfast or... More

It's just a diner, but it gets "best" reviews when looking for breakfast in Bethlehem. It deserves the praise! Kristie was our charming waitress, and she never let our coffee mugs go empty. I just had to have the seasonal pumpkin pancakes, and my wife enjoyed south side grits. A bowl of the happy oatmeal was just too tempting to... More
