Greatest breakfasts anywhere!

I have read some weird reviews about this place! This is the best breakfast diner anywhere! I drive 30 miles several times a year to eat there. Their Lemon Ricotta pancakes are superb, & sausages top-of-the line! The wait staff is FAST & EFFICIENT, & the host is QUICK, pleasant & accomodating. I cannot underStand ANYONE not being happy to eat there!

Hands down the best breakfast ...

Hands down the best breakfast place in the Bay Area! People in this area tend to take their breakfast pretty seriously, so Bette's faces strong competition from the likes of old standards such as La Note on Berkeley or Zazie's in SF's Cole Valley, but IMHO Bette's takes the cake. Offering up American breakfast standards, Bette's distinguishes itself not by seeing how crazy or original they can make their dishes, but ... view more

Unparallel scrambles

I love Bette's! Whether I get there early to beat the crowds or later from a lazy get-out-of-bed hunger, Bette's never disappoints. I like the basics.....scrambled eggs done to perfection, breakfast potatoes that aren't boring and don't overwhelm, and good ole pancakes.....once in awhile, some breakfast meat or the salmon scramble......If you have to wait, get a cup of coffee next door, and it's free refills in the r... view more

Nice omelet

Ola! Well on a whim I decided to try this place out. It was Saturday morn and it was busy. But I got lucky and was able to park IFO ( in front of) the place. There was list and a wait of 45 minutes. A couple said they were told 45 mins. too,but waited 20. So we sat in our car and waited. It was a balmy 70, clear skies a bit of wind but a beautiful day. A lot of people decided to not wait. I got impatient at 40 minute... view more

Really good pancakes

I have to say Bette's makes the best pancakes in town. I had the banana sour cream pancake and it was screaming good. I went there with my 9 months old little boy and he was ready to stick his hands in the plate. Overall, the wait was a little long. But the pancake really made my day. :)

Bette's has fantastic Breakfasts. The Lox and Eggs are fantastic. The portions are a little small and the prices are a little high, but the quality makes up for the negatives. The long lines exist because so many people agree that the food is wonderful. I dislike going to the snooty, corporate 4th Street area, but I'll venture there any morning for Bette's breakfast.

Slow, boring, cramped but great if you like burnt food

This place is WAY overrated and should be avoided. Long waits for, at best, mediocre food. Blueberry pancakes were nothing special and burnt. Toast was burnt, polenta that came with daily special was completely charred on the bottom but it was replaced after about 10 minutes of trying to get the attention of a server. Our server was actually very nice but the host made a point of coming to our table to chastise us be... view more

Not Going Back There

For long waits, cramped atmosphere and pretentious policies, Bettes is the place to go. Been there three times: First, not so bad. Second, after waiting thirty minutes to be seated, the waitress spilled a latte on my wool jacket: probably due to overly difficult maneuvering in the cramped interior. All that was offered was an apology and a wet towel. Third, after waiting forty minutes and getting some coffee with my ... view more

Bette's is the best breakfast

Great breakfast; slow seating due to the crowds, but well worth the wait
