Quaint, busy diner that executed well. It was as good as everyone as said. Great chicken poblano sandwich, although I had a bit of “order envy” when I saw the soufflé pancake delivered to the table next to me. The woman said it was excellent...More

Pancake soufflé? I never dared to imagine this beforehand and now can’t wait for another. Light, delicate, full of flavour but not overly filling. a real delight and treasure of a diner

We had breakfast at Bette’s at 9:00 am on a Thursday. We’d heard tales of hour long waits to get in, but this timeframe did not include a wait. Our waitress was friendly and efficient, and checked back without being intrusive. We all had different...More

Delicious breakfast, lots of gluten-free options. I had a wonderful pumpkin/chocolate-chip scone (not gf). Service was excellent and the experience was great. Come early - by 9 am on the weekend there's quite a wait.

Hate the line, it was hot and noisy, but the food was like stepping back to yesteryear. A group of the customers were regulars; a fun noisy group. Good service, no parking. Good breakfast. You can buy some of the products to take home.

If the diner is too busy, go the the "to go" side! This is a great, high quality spot to eat. A great mix of old school and modern eating.

Great place to visit after my yoga class. Take-out part of the restaurant serves pizza, salads and desserts. Lots of outdoor seating and right on 4th street with lots of fun shops.

Tried to eat here on Sunday at 9am, as Labour weekend very busy. Couldn't wait an hour for a table so had waffles from take out Bette next door. Good waffle with strawberry on top. Shame I didn't get the full breakfast.

This continues to be the absolute BEST breakfast and brunch restaurant in the Berkeley area! The menu is amazing with many excellent choices. I had Huevous Rancheros, my sister Blueberry pancakes and my husband an amazing omelette. Also plenty of bacon and sourdough toast AND...More
