Betty's is located in an historic building in the colorful Allentown neighborhood in Buffalo. A large part of its ambience is created by exhibits of the work of local artists, which change every two months.Our full service bar features New York State distilled spirits, an interesting and well-rounded wine and beer list and special seasonal cocktails. While famous for its Sunday brunch, Betty's is also a popular place for dinner for pre-theatre and pre-symphony patrons, for business breakfasts and lunches and for special family occasions. Our bar is open until midnight or later Thursay through Saturday and is the perfect place for those looking for a mature, low-key bar scene.

Great vegetarian options...

We came for breakfast. The food was delicious and the staff was very nice. They have a toddy scramble that was yummy. They also serve beer in the morning, but we were getting back on the road. They have a patio and they let us sit at a table on the edge and our dog was on the sidewalk just... read more

It was cozy and cute, but there was a hair in my food. I got the hamburger special with a side of potato salad. They did take the meal off the bill but they didn't ask if I wanted anything else even though it was only half eaten. the part of the hamburger that I did eat tasted good before... More

There is a new menu since my last visit here....not much has changed, except that they now show an exhaustive list of their bar offerings. I realize that's where the profit it, but this simple wood floored old building seems more like a juice and a sprout sandwich to me. The hippy vibe to this west side building is enhanced... More

Love the decor and feel of Betty's. You feel like you have just walked into someones home for a meal! If you judge by the wait time that it takes to be seated, then you know its a fave of locals here in Buffalo. We were there for "blunch" and I had the roasted veggie yummwich which is also served...

Several people raved about the food here, but we don't see it. The server did not pay attention. My wife got the potato pancake appetizer and asked for no sour cream, and she got sour cream. I asked if I could have a caesar salad since the entrees came with two sides and a salad or soup. He told me... More

What a great place! Outside seating (covered patio and sidewalk) available for 2 to 10 people if needed. We had lunch sandwiches, 1 gluten free veggie burger, 1 bánh mì burger and two side salads. Service was great and attentive (not overbearing) and all questions were answered quickly and professionally. bathrooms were clean, neat, in good order. Hostess was super... More

Went for breakfast with some girl friends recently and enjoyed Betty's so much! We sat outside and it was a great atmosphere - so relaxing and lovely. The selection of breakfast was very good - not your traditional eggs & waffles. Most of us got the special, peach french toast casserole with cream cheese and raspberry sauce, and another got...

Busy busy busy on weekends but so worth it. Awesome selection for vegetarians, vegans and gluten free eaters. (Meat eaters will be happy too). Sunday brunch is fab. Go before 10 or be prepared for a bit of a wait. Very relaxing atmosphere.
