Berkeley staple for breakfast and lunch. The scones are a must have. Also excellent milkshakes.

You'll never forget your first fluffy waffle from Bette's, a very old and beloved diner in one of Berkeley's best shopping areas - 4th Street. It's great for brunch or lunch and you can enjoy everything from Apple to clothing stores and a Crate and Barrel outlet after.

Famous place for breakfast and lunch on 4th Street, Berkeley, an easy walk from my home. Excellent food and coffee.


Soufflé pancake and scrapple!

The result was one of the more interesting and tasty breakfast I've eaten in a long time. The soufflé pancake was so fluffy and delicious. Whoever thought of this was a genius! As for the scrapple, the flavors was subtle, but had almost the same texture as spam. Also, a bit less salty than spam.

With a delicious place like Bette's, you bet there oughta be a long wait. I didn't mind the long wait because the host in the front made us feel welcome and comfortable. I was truly impressed with their excellent staff, excellent service and excellent food.

A memorable breakfast with my two favorite people on a lovely Sunday morning was more than I could have asked for. I suggest you give this place a visit. You'll be missing out if you don't.

I've been loving this place for years! With Chef Daryl at the Helm... It's all great!!! One of the best breakfasts ever!!! It is wonderful to know you can count on Bette's to be ever down home, ever kind, and ever great!!!!

I give Bette's 3 stars not because the food isn't great, but because there is always a wait. Go early.

Bette's is a 4th Street Classic and still offering an honest breakfast after all these year. There are still lines, and you'll have to decide whether it's worth the wait. Normally, I'll move on regardless of how amazing the place turns out to be.

I also make it a point at Bette's Bakery when I'm in the Neighbourhood. The baked goods are tasty and the pizza is even better. And as a bonus, there's sometimes a price break near closing.

A great place to come for breakfast while in the 4th street area. Now, if you come at 8 in the morning before everyone else arrives you can easily get a table or sit at the counter. Later on? Wait practically guaranteed. The pancakes are indeed very good here, but so are the egg dishes. Service? Excellent. Coffee? Eh.

The gold standard of sit down diners. Also a take out store next door.
