Mac and cheese. Pasta inferno. Sesame chicken salad. Breakfast. Big portions cheap prices. Kinda hidden away and not the most gorgeous place inside. But the food and value is so so so worth it!

It was very good breakfast - eggs over easy , sausage and home fries more food than you can eat. The atmosphere was very retro and homey.

The restaurant is located in the downtown area in a not so nice neighborhood. City street parking. Restaurant was decorated nicely with Betty Boop decor. I was with a party of 4. Home fries were generous but somewhat bland to me. Egg was thin and a little overcooked. Pancake was difficult to cut through with my fork. Coffee was good... More

The decor is defiantly for the Betty Boop lovers. We went for breakfast and it was delicious. They used fresh baby spinach for their spinach & feta omelette... and their corned beef hash was homemade and delicious!

Tucked in a corner of a not-so-nice neighborhood, this little restaurant is worth the trip. Friendly staff, diner-type menu and 50's ambiance.makes this a place you'd want to come back to with friends. Don't be surprised if you sit at a table next to famous faces from NYS government who like to go there on a lunch break.

Was visiting family for the weekend and my cousin who lives in Albany had heard wonderful things about it, so we decided to try it. We went for breakfast, and I know that they serve lunch and dinner as well. You would not know that this place is existed unless you know someone local. There is no way that you... More

Even with the interesting (to say the least) decor, this small cafe setting was a great value. Basic breakfast was inexpensive with perfectly cooked bacon and seemingly homemade sausage. My girlfriend had the french toast, which she loved. Overall, we received above average service and a friendly wait staff. 2 breakfasts for under $20, can't beat that in downtown Albany.

Another weekend trek for the wife and I to find a decent place to have breakfast. We decided not to travel outside of our comfort zone as the last two weekends were a bit of a disappointment. Just read my last two reviews. This time we decided to venture back to the old neighborhood and try Betty Boop's diner in... More

I'm not really into the whole Betty Boop thing personally. My wife suggested we go there on a whim and I was pretty apathetic to the decor. But I was also hungry and I'm glad we went. Place is in a pretty seedy side of town and there is next to no good parking which can be a bit of... More
