I cannot overlook the hour it just took us to get our eggs after the order was placed, in addition to the twenty minutes prior it had taken us to receive our coffee. When I ordered scrambled eggs and a la carte home fries for my three-and-a-half-year-old daughter, stating to the waiter that they were for her, the waiter never... More

A great surprise. Went here for breakfast and the overall experience was wonderful. The food, service, building and location were above expectations. We had the quiche and an omelet, both were executed perfectly. Much better than a typical hotel breakfast.

My family of four enjoyed a unique and delicious meal at Betty's our first night in Buffalo. The restaurant is inviting in an eclectic neighborhood. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. It was a nice welcome to Buffalo.

A restored old brick building with a pleasant canvas covered awning contains a small restaurant on a residential corner just a block from Elmwood Avenue downtown. Think old bare wood floors and local artwork.They have expanded in recent years and now serve more elaborate dinners and have installed a built in bar. Parking is tricky on the neighboring streets.

Went to Betty's for Blunch (breakfast and lunch?) - very difficult to decide what to order as there were so many unusual enticing options! One of the soups of the day was White Bean, Sausage, and Greens and it was very tasty. The food overall was good and the service was friendly and prompt.

It was lunchtime during the Allentown Art Festival when we found Betty's. Betty's is located a couple of streets from the main street where the festival was. It is located within a neighborhood, off the main drag. This place has a real Austin Texas kind of vibe. The menu is eclectic and a little pricey than I expected. The décor... More

We had a delicious breakfast here! I just loved my omelette and the charm of the building. The boys had amazing cookies. It's one of those places that is a gift from hipsters.
