Review: Situated at the corner of Cottage and Virginia Streets in a residential section of Allentown, Betty's, with its cozy atmosphere and seemingly hip crowd, is a natural fit in the neighborhood surroundings. The restaurant is well lit and has a very pleasant ambiance; local art adorns brightly colored walls. I stopped in for a quick brunch on an early Sunday afternoon; most of any morning crowd that had existed earlier had now dissipated. I was pleased to find that most of the menu was vegetarian with a few vegan options. The tofu hash I ordered, however, was mediocre at best. The corn bread was very dry, semi-stale and several of the red peppers in the dish were burnt to a crisp. My waitress also forgot to bring my drink despite the fact that she was only waiting on me and two other tables. Since it was nearing closing time (3pm on Sundays), most of the staff seemed overly distracted with setting their own meals at a near-by table with an older lady, who I assume was one of the restaurant owners. Though I might have had a better experience dining earlier in the day, I was nonetheless left with a far-from-stellar first impression of a restaurant with much potential.
