If you’re looking for a good breakfast/brunch in downtown Bethlehem, look no further than Billy’s. The menu is diverse and offers standard fare as well as more imaginative egg dishes. There is a decidedly southwestern flair and the huevos rancheros are especially good. They have 3 revenues for eggs Benedict but the eggs in our dish were slightly over cooked. I’d ask for runny eggs if I went back. Service is good and the prices are reasonable. We walked right in at 845 but there was a line when we left at 10.

What impressed me most about Billy's was the great service. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. They have a great menu serving breakfast and lunch, but I was in the mood for a grilled cheese and it wasn't on the menu. No problem- they made it and it was great. No wonder this restaurant is very popular and has a great reputation.

Definitely worth a visit.

We ate at Billy's in Allentown on our visit so we were looking forward to eating at Billy's again. The menu has a lot of choices that are inventive takes on traditional breakfast food. Our food was very good as was the service. I like the Allentown location better though.

I dined with two family members for breakfast at the Bethlehem location of Billy’s Downtown Diner on a Sunday morning in mid-June 2017. Billy’s does not accept reservations, but you can call ahead to arrange seating for large parties. On the morning that we dined, the host accurately quoted us a 20-minute wait, part of which we spent waiting outside on the sidewalk, and the other part indoors leaning against the half-wall adjacent to the front window. Small parties (1 or 2 people) had shorter wait times than our party of 3. Metered parking is available on the street or in a surface lot across from the restaurant (complimentary on Sundays).

The Bethlehem location of Billy’s opened in 2000 in the former Rudy’s Newsstand on Broad Street in the downtown area. The space was renovated/enlarged in 2006 and 2014. Billy’s offers locations in Allentown (opened in 2013) and Easton (opening soon!), with goals of franchising. Green and caramel-painted walls (some of which are covered with awards and photographs) and terracotta-looking tile floors accent the various configurations of tables and booths. The space even offers an old-fashioned lunch counter where singles can dine.

Billy’s offers thoughtfully creative comfort food. We ordered the berry crunch French toast, the monte cristo (ham, turkey, and Swiss cheese on egg-soaked bread), and the sriracha bowl (a crispy flour tortilla shaped into a bowl [the kind that is sometimes used to hold a taco salad] topped with hash brown potatoes, scrambled eggs, and carnitas [pulled pork], with a dollop of sour cream, guacamole, and pickled [but not spicy] chili peppers; sriracha sauce drizzled over the top added a kick). The restaurant has been named “Best Breakfast in the Lehigh Valley” several times.

We enjoyed our breakfast at Billy’s Downtown Diner – great service, good quality food, and a comfortable atmosphere.
