Beth's Cafe is a place for the very, very late night crowd. The customer base is eclectic to say the least, but if you're looking for a real roadfood experience for breakfast (24 hours a day) it is not to be missed.

For the monster appetite, try the 12 egg omelette with all-you-can-eat hashbrowns. Many an intrepid power eater more than met their match.

Click on the eats button and then click the green arrow for the menu.

    I have a serious problem with unrealistic portions of food.

    Charging extra for 'shares' when the "normal" portion is 6 to a dozen eggs? It works out to about $4 <+/-> per person...why don't you call a spade a spade?

    Give them great food at $3 to $4 per...

    My cafe will never do that. Free coffee ... yeah....

    I suppose it sounds good on the surface, but realistically speaking it's all advertising hype.

      I think monstrous portions create a "wow" factor that hypes the place but I am not sure if it is an effective long term marketing strategy.

        This strikes me as a gimick. I do, however, like generous portions because, frankly, I eat fewer, bigger meals (often skip lunch and rarely eat breakfast) and don't go back to a restaurant whose portion size leaves me hungry.

          6 egg omlettes are what I make at home, never less. I'd be more than willing to try a 12'er, but I don't think I'd be availing myself of the limitless potatoes.
