First there is no OceanView. There may be a bay view if there were no buildings, but there is no ocean view. However, it is still one of my favorite breakfast, lunch places in Berkeley.
Salads, daily specials, egg dishes, sandwiches, desserts, milkshakes - They are all highly recommended. The food is fresh, everything homemade, even the bread for the hot dog bun,
and the desserts are very special.
I've come here many times because 4th Street is an interesting place to shop for special finds - Garden Store, Paper Store, Shoes, sweaters, CB2 furniture, etc. On sundays there is quite a crowd but parking places ARE to be found.
If you find that the line is too long at Bette's, one can go right next door to the bakery and get take out of Bette's diner and get pizza and salads and desserts and have a nice, people watching meal sitting outside. It's all good and never yet been a disappointment at this restaurant, neither the food nor the staff. Great attitude and welcoming staff. The food is not too pricey and there are breakfast cocktails of mimosas, and Kir Royale, etc, reasonably priced !
I see that the Diner can be rented out for special events.
