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.

One Block Off the Beaten Path but One of My Favorites

Perfect Brunch or a delectable dinner it's your call, but a great time is yours at Betty's. I love sitting at the bar waiting for my table. It is an easy wait with a perfect grey goose gimlet in your hand. It is one block west of South Elmwood and it is almost like they didn't want you to find... read more

EVERYTHING was good ... a few things were great! Absolutely LOVED 'The Luv Sandwich' with Smoked Salmon on a sesame bagel. Only one thing I didn't care for ... the service team is really not a team at all. As a matter of fact we sat before a table that was served before us ... and I overheard a waitress... More

Trying to find good food while traveling can be a crap shoot, but add to that both my children are Vegan can be challenging. I found Betty's online and all of us couldn't of been more pleased. The place was charming, the service was fantastic. As for the food we were all impressed. My children ordered the veggie Italian sub... More

My husband and I attended the Allentown Art Festival on Sunday and after decided to take a short walk over to Betty's for Sunday Brunch. All of the local magazines say it has one of the best brunches in the area. It was pretty crowded but we only had to wait about 10 minutes for our table. We were seated... More

I am so glad on our way back from Buffalo to Chicago we stopped here for breakfast. I am a vegetarian but eat egg. (Yaaa.. we all can spend days on debating about whether i should be called vegetarian or not ). What amazing food they have and on top of it awesome service. Must go there for breakfast :)

Nice outdoor patio, service ok, terrible food. I've been there 4 times for breakfast and each time it is worse than the last. I don't get it! Why do people like the food?

Betty's seems to push their vegetarian in their ads, but once there, we found many meat dishes. The beef stew was delightful. Love the bar area and they make great cocktails.

I had lunch here with my wife and another couple on the second day of a weekend visit to Buffalo, a beautiful sunny May day. The restaurant was very busy with a short line-up to be seated so we opted to sit at the bar. Good choice. The bartender loved to chat as did the diners seated beside me and... More

Had lunch here on my way to the airport. There was a line at the door, but the manager kindly seated my friend and me at the bar and made sure that we were served. Excellent sandwich and average-to-very-good salad. From my observations at the bar and from conversations with persons behind the bar, I would not say that this... More
