We had breakfast here. The service was perfect and the food was delicious. We had the breakfast hash with eggs. It was cooked perfectly and the wheat toast was cut thick and looked homemade. Overall..... a great place to eat.

This is a busy breakfast and brunch spot not far from downtown, in the Elwood neighborhood. Service was prompt and the tables turned pretty quickly. The food menu is one page, while the wine and drinks menu is two. The French toast casserole (basically breakfast-flavored bread pudding) was good, if a little dense. As was the sausage. The hot chocolate... More

Stopped here for Brunch on Sunday based on recommendations from locals...we weren't disappointed. A nice cozy spot for dining. We were happy with the brunch selection, service and our meals. I had the biscuits and gravy with a side of multigrain toast and was very satisfied. Fast efficient service on our visit.

This place was very highly rated and walking distance from my hotel. The restaurant is in the main floor of a house, and is brightly painted. Our waitress was friendly. When we first got there, the place was fairly empty. It filled up pretty fast though. I ordered an egg sandwich and there was a waffle with carmelized bananas for... More

Food was great! Long wait on a Saturday afternoon is understandable. Took longer than advised by the hostess. There seemed to be a miscommunication amongst staff as to what tables were ready and when. Many couples waited while tables for four were empty. Roadside parking only.

As someone who eats a gluten free diet, I have learned to significantly lower my expectations while eating out. But Betty's renewed my faith in restaurant fare. Not only were most of the options on the menu gluten free, get this - they actually tasted good - excellent, in fact. And the coffee? The coffee was just as delightful. Not... More

It is hard to find parking around Betty's because it is a busy place. We came on a Saturday at around 9:30 right before the big rush. We got a table in the cozy dining room that is painted yellow and has art by a graffiti artist. The coffee was very decent and the food was way good I had... More

Betty's offers a very large variety for either breakfast, or lunch. The food is very tasty, and the service is comfortable, like a diner ought to be.

Betty's is located in an historic building in the colorful Allentown neighborhood in Buffalo. A large part of its ambiance 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-theater and pre-symphony patrons, for business breakfasts and lunches and for special family occasions.
