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.

A very busy, delicious Brunch!

Celebrating a birthday w a vegan can be a challenge! Betty's has vegan food on their delicious menu which is why we chose Betty's. We arrived early on sunny Sunday for Brunch-and we were glad we arrived early. Parking can be an issue-and when we left, there were at least 20 people waiting outside... read more

The atmosphere, the food, the staff, the building itself - all great! Unique breakfast/brunch choices, unlike most breakfast restaurants. It's a busy place, so be prepared to have a bit of a wait, but it's worth it! The

This restaurant is bigger than it looks. didn't have to wait as our guests were all there. interesting menu items, great food. The back of the menu lists all the businesses that at one time or another ran out of this building. It was interesting to see the differences in the venues.

In 30 years of dining out, I have never had the misfortune of dining at an establishment with such an obnoxious staff. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to Betty's.... You deserve better!

My husband and I cannot eat gluten, so we usually have very little choice in restaurants. But at Betty's, there are so many gluten-free meals that it's hard to decide which to have. Quite frankly, I wanted all of them! We started with a spectacular baked brie served with roasted garlic cloves, balsamic, apple slices, a deliciously spicy apple chutney... More

We visited Bettys last Sunday for breakfast. They do not take reservations so the wait was a bit longer than I would have expected. The waiting area was very cramped for my family of four. As people came in and out you were right by the door. There was a small seating area that we managed to land a seat... More

A friend and I had a late lunch today--still serving at 2:30pm. Advertised as a purveyor of contemporary comfort food I was delighted to find familiar food in gluten free, dairy free and vegan guises. I had superb fish tacos (with fabulous crunchy veg) with an excellent side salad and my friend had a very upscale soup (cauliflower/cheddar) and sandwich... More

My wife and I really enjoy going out to eat, and the Buffalo / WNY area has some great restaurants to try. We heard about Betty’s from my wife’s grandmother who has never steered us wrong. So, after going to Mass at St. Louis we decided to give Betty’s a chance. The parking around Betty’s is at a premium and... More
