“Great breakfasts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Whether scrapple, sourdough pancakes or granola, it is hard to miss here. But although they move things along, beware of lines!

“Great for breakfast, but be prepared to wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

I always enjoy Bette's and wish it were closer to home. The food is always perfect as is the coffee. I like my eggs "soft" and that is just how they come, unless you ask for them more well done. Counter, table or booth, it is always a treat.

“Is there Bette's in heaven?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

First of all, I have been coming here for years. Over 25 years. And, it has been consistently great. Sometimes I have lived in the area and sometimes I have had to drive (yes 80 miles round trip for a BLT), and sometimes fly a long distance to it. This place is an institution. The wait can be long, but well worth it. One of those places that when I'm there...there's no place I'd rather be...

“Great diner food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Great diner food. The wait staff is most professional. The quality is consistently wonderful. The antidote to the chain restaurant.
