Tourists come from all over to experience the culture of New Orleans. But if you want the real thing, go to Betsy's. This is where the locals go to eat breakfast. It's a short ride down Canal Street on the streetcar but you will be...transported back in time. This place is truly worth a visit for the friendly service and good local fare.More

This is my go to for a great down home breakfast anytime I am in New Orleans. Friendly staff and great food. Must have waffles and Pancakes!!! Also, lunch specials are good if you want something different than the regular downtown fare.

Hello everyone just want to make everyone aware I didn't have a good experience at Betsy's pancake house on canal Street in New Orleans Louisiana. I made the waiter aware I was allergic to eggs. After taking my order she brought it to my attention....That I couldn't have my eggs on different plate per the manager. I asked to speak to the manager she refused to speak with me. Manager was being very rude and unprofessional. Screaming at her staff about my order. I was so embarrassed and upset they treated me that way.More

I found Betsy's while in town working with the Red Cross on disaster relief after Hurricane Laura. This is the perfect example of a friendly neighborhood restaurant -- except this one is located on a major street in New Orleans. This is a relatively small...place with great food, friendly customers who welcome new faces, and great management and waitresses. It's only open for breakfast and lunch so don't wait until dinner on your last day in NOLA or you will miss out, and you don't want to miss out. They have all of the standard menu items but also have some unusual items that you might enjoy, as I did. What Betsy's does not have are the high New Orleans prices. If you want a good breakfast or lunch in a friendly atmosphere, and at a fair price, do not pass up Betsy's. And, if you like hot sauce, give the Crystal hot sauce a try and, if there is not a bottle on your table, ask for it.More

Eat here every trip to NOLA. Very reasonable prices. Only place I've found with authentic buckwheat pancakes. Great food.

If you are looking a wonderful, warm southern breakfast, then take a trolley down Canal Street to Betsy's Pancake House. This establishment had a delicious breakfast. Our server Kat was warm and accommodating. The breakfast specials end at 10:30 AM but the food is great...no matter what time of the morning you are there. The biscuits and gravy was a wonderful side dish.More

We were staying in an Airbnb apartment just a few blocks from the restaurant. The previous day we had visited the Waffle House next door on Canal str and we w ere very disappointed. But this place was really nice. Its has a really home...feeling. The staff there was really helpful the food was really good! I also iam under the impression thay a lot of locals come here.More

Eggs cooked perfectly, bacon was crispy, giant crumbly,buttery biscuit. Staff was friendly and attentive. The restaurant was super clean, well-lit but not glaringly so. Glad I asked how big the biscuits were; waitress advised me to get one and I could get another quickly if...wanted. Good advice, they are huge! I didn't have room for pancakes, but based on what I ate and looking at plates at faces around me I suspect they are excellent also. A great breakfast experience.More
