Monday Meals: Bette's Diner

Black n’ white checkered floors, red leather seats, and the smell of a good old cup o’ Joe.
A favorite in the Berkeley area, the diner’s long breakfast lines are notoriously long if only because its fluffy buttermilk pancakes are infamously delicious.

Right, so the pancakes are pretty normal-looking but as the old adage goes, it's what's on the inside that counts. And oh does it count.

Their omelets are also amazing especially the herb and cheese one served with a good helping of home fries and a scone.

Oh, and did we mention that they're German-owned? Potato loves weiners (ha) so this bockwurst and potato pancake combo really hit the spot.

And don't even get us started on the decor. We're suckers for retro Americana.
(Look at that jukebox!)

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...a pie?

And with that, Bette's is a favorite breakfast/brunch place for us and while it’s a little out of the way in both price and location for the everyday college student, it is definitely worth the short weekend excursion.
Food:  Great-tasting, classic diner food but nothing particularly original.
Atmosphere:  Fun, retro decor the crowds of people make it difficult to soak it all in.
Service:  Varies depending on the crowd, but definitely set aside at least an hour of wait time.
Price: $$ Not cheap, but the quality outweighs the price.
