Bertha's Diner: Best Breakfast in Buffalo?

When a restaurant only takes cash and is open for only a few short hours a day, they better offer some good food to back up the hassle.  We’ve eaten at places that basically turn away customers but in almost all of those cases the food justified the trouble. 

When driving down Hertel Ave you could easily drive by Bertha’s and not even realize it.  Hertel is packed with endless dining options, yet it’s the restaurant that sticks out the least that really impressed our dining party for late breakfast/lunch on a Saturday.

I just recently found out about Bertha’s.  During a “secret” foodie meeting to decide “Best of” winners for a particular Buffalo magazine, I was told that Bertha’s served some of the best breakfast in Buffalo.  Now I’m a fairly new to going out to eat breakfast; I don’t like to wake up that early on the weekend and it’s still no where close to my favorite meal of the day but I’m beginning to enjoy it more and more.  So if there was a place to kick start my love of breakfast, this would be the place.

The Backwoods Benedict ($9.75, pictured above) is two buttermilk waffles (yes, I said waffles) topped with sausage patties and two eggs covered with homemade sausage gravy.  Our waitress said it was the most popular special that weekend and I think you can understand why.  Above is maybe the greatest “Food Porn” we’ve ever captured on camera.  Alli and Jay both devoured their orders and really loved it. I had a taste of the sausage gravy and thought it was incredibly savory and somewhat intimidating.  Eating an entire order requires a big appetite.
