As good as I heard it was

A pesto & chicken omelette seemed like an interesting option. It was better than I had hoped for. Coffee was great and the cup kept full. The wheat toast could have had a little more flavour/texture - it was third fiddle to the main attraction and the coffee.

First time at Billy's, and the breakfast was.awesome! Had the Berry Krunch French toast, which is unlike any French toast. Ever. Don't let the kiddie cereal name fool you, this was fabulous. Coffee was very good and the cup stayed filled. A busy Sunday late morning but seated in 20 minutes as promised...service was as great as the food. They... More

1st time ever coming to Billy's Restaurant. We walked in, seated ourselves and waited for a greeting, a menu, or some kind of service for 15min. The waitresses had seen us walk in. When we decided to leave the waitresses were all standing around and talking to each other like they were just waiting around for the food. Very bad... More

Best Crab Eggs Benedict I have had in PA. Unlimited coffee. Waitresses are super nice. They give you the right amount of service. Not too little and not too much. Seems to be a rare commodity these days. Oh, get there early...they do run out of crab. Also Unbelievable french toast. Remember to pack your quarters for downtown parking. Right... More

Billy's has a great breakfast menu. They're on top of the service, and the food is quite good. Comfortable and friendly place. You can't go wrong here!

People! How can you not love this place? Mr. Billy, his wife, or his mother is at the door to greet you. You have to be blind not to see their only goal is to please you, feed you, and send you home or on to your day, full and satisfied. I've read some of the negative reviews..... They are... More

Stopped in for a late breakfast. A ton of great options for breakfast for just about any taste. I had an omelette my wife had stuffed French toast. Both dishes were great, Coffee not so much.

Always wonderfully creative and delicious. I had a crab cake benedict on spinach that was just superb with all the great flavors blending together perfectly. Service was excellent and the food came out so fast we were in and out in half an hour!

We stopped for a Valentine's Day breakfast. This was our first time here, so we were excited to see what they had to offer. The menu wasn't as big as I would have thought, but everything sounded wonderful. There were some special items on the menu as well. I ordered the Banana Rama (I think) pecan pancakes. It consisted of... More

A local here - we've had our fair share of diner breakfasts and the Berry Krunch at Billy's is amazing! If you are a fan of home fries as well, taste their "Billfy" or "OPA" versions for a kick in flavor. Their regular breakfast menu is quite extensive but they usually have a paper insert with a few specials listed... More
