Just nipped in as I was staying close by, greeted by 6 Cops all enjoying breakfast and it felt cosy and welcoming. Food was quick, filling and cheap. Coffee was good too!

It was wonderful experience to have breakfast here several times. The Omelette with bacon was the best one that I've ever eaten. Various kinds of people had breakfast. The host was super kind and nice. Yes, food was excellent. But I miss that atmosphere more.

Billy's is a wonderful place to pick up a quick, solid sub at lunch. Nothing fancy or over the top here but the food is consistent and the service is fast.

The food was perfect for a hangover. It came quickly and was satisfying. The portions were a good size but the pricing was a little expensive. The atmosphere is one of a local hole in the wall spot.
