Breakfast Is Worth the Wait at Bette’s Oceanview Diner

July 20, 2016 4:01 pm

Prepare to stand in line to secure a table at Bette’s Oceanview Diner for breakfast or lunch. It’s a Berkeley landmark that serves comfort food in a casual diner setting with red leatherette booths and counter seating.

Early birds like to cruise in when they open at 6 a.m. and chow down on hearty breakfast fare such as huevos rancheros, omelets, banana rum souffle pancakes, and the New York bagel patter. Be sure to try Bette’s legendary scones! Sandwiches are served with potato salad or tangy slaw and include a turkey and bacon club, meatloaf, tuna salad, and a vegetarian option with avocado, roasted bell peppers, marinated cucumbers, and vinaigrette. Plate offerings include fish tacos and gravy-topped meatloaf.

Bette's Oceanview Diner is open every day.
