Love this place. It's small with not a lot of seating so get there early on weekends or you will be waiting a while. Creative delish dishes gives a yummy twist to old breakfast favorites!

I have been to Billy's several times. It is a small place in downtown Bethlehem although I think they have closed for renovations and you can now go to their new restaurant in Allentown which is at 9th and Hamilton Sts. If you looking for something above the usual eggs or pancakes you should really give Billy's a try. He... More

Small, about 3 blocks off Main Street and worth every extra step to get there. We stumbled upon it and went back the next day. The food is excellent and and the portions are great. Everything is fresh and tasty and the service is generally awesome. Be prepared to wait as it's popular -- but if you go slightly off... More

We were there for a late breakfast. the place was crowded but not mobbed. Service was pleasant and pretty fast. When we were there they had delicious coffee drink options on specials menu. We had a monte crisco type meal with French toast and eggs and an omelette. Both were delicious but not large portions. Both breakfasts also came with... More

Good diner, with a few twists such as southwestern eggs benedict using chorizo sausage instead of canadian bacon, Standard diner ambiance and value, but service was great and food good. Wait was about 20 minutes and stayed that long from 10 to 11:30. Worth the wait. Quite surprised to hear they take reservations.

We had a party of 2 and were seated immediately; it seems that there is more seating available for smaller parties, there are many party of 2 booths, and larger parties seemed to have a longer wait. The menu is not something I have seen anywhere and it all sounds absolutely fabulous. I was tempted by the strawberry lemonade pancakes,... More

This looks and feels like a small diner on a crowded street, but this isn't diner food. The menu is not traditional, and every item sounds better than the one before. There are always breakfast and lunch specials but huevos rancheros is an absolute must at least once. It is absolutely delicious; flavorful but not too spicy. If you go... More

Me and my best friend stopped in for a late breakfast. Our waitress served the people next to us, and after the patron already started eating her meal, the waitress came back and said "wait wait wait!", and took her plate away. Our waitress then came back no more than thirty seconds later, and gave my best friend the same... More

Found this place online. So glad we did. We had to wait 20 minutes for a table as it is very busy.We were told this online but it was worth the wait. Although the restaurant is small the food was excellent and the service very quick and friendly. My husband had a tasty omelette with mango salsa and Jalapeno peppers... More
