Great spot for quick scone and out the door. Little wait compared to diner next door. All baked goods are always great. Miss the slice of pizza.

Bette's is the kind of place that puts out well above average breakfast fare, some dishes with a twist, all I've thus had were sizeable portions. It's a popular place but the staff provide excellent, efficient, and friendly service that keeps the place humming along.

A friend who lives nearby suggest meeting here for brunch after I arrived in town and it was a great choice! Busy for brunch even on a weekday, the classic decor and classic food also had some new takes. Well worth waiting for if there...More
