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.

Parking is at a premium, but Betty’s Sunday Brunch is well worth it!

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... read more

I think my title says it all. A completely divine breakfast, great value,enormous portion and really reasonably priced. Bought baked goods for my drive that day and yeah they didn't even make it over the bridge. Not great for the waistline but essential for happiness

An artsy neighborhood feel to a restaurant with delicious choices you can always count on. There is a small cozy bar there too. Great place to beat the winter blues with some hot cider!

Such a funky place to eat -- terrific art on the walls, comfy wait staff, great variety of all kinds of proteins/vegetarian/whole grain/homemade/very satisfying food. Gets pretty crowded so don't be in a hurry. The crowds attest to the goodness. Especially love their pancakes.

Weekend brunch during the holidays, a busy time for many restaurants. Betty's had customers lined up waiting for a table. The service was a tad slow, one would expect this given how busy they were. The food was very acceptable. The pleasure of the dinning experience was nullified when the hostess came over, shortly after we paid our bill, to... More

We love eating at Betty's restaurant! The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. In the summer, you are able to sit out on the patio which is very comfortable and inviting. The food is very good. They offer quite a few "home-cooked" type recipes. They use good quality ingredients...and are very conscious of food allergies. I am gluten intollerant...and I... More

If you are a true vegan, or have celiac disease, if you like meat, this is the place - we are a party of four with very different likes and food allergies. We love Betty's for breakfast , lunch and just had dinner there. Loved all of it. Wine list is very good too.

Quirky art, indoor exposed brick walls and delicious food! Have had brunch and lunch here a number of times and it has never disappointed. Love to bring friends who do not go into Buffalo very often and they all love it too. Delicious homemade baked goods are always available. Today brought a friend for lunch. I had the grilled cheese... More

The place always seems busy. The two times that I have eaten there were both great. There was a bit of a wait for a table, under ten minutes and the service was excellent.

Tried an old place for the first time. Great French Toast casserole coveted in blueberries. Super service and unique old fashioned diner. Highly recommend.
