Bette's Oceanview Diner in Berkeley closed last month because of the pandemic but they are now getting a second chance thanks to some former employees!
The new owners, made up of seven former managers and workers, will drop the name Bette, from Bette's Oceanview Diner, but they are keeping everything else the same.
For nearly 40 years the restaurant, which sits on 4th Street, has been a staple in the community
William Bishop, co-owner of the new Oceanview Diner says he felt obligated to do something when Bette’s longtime owners, exhausted from the pressures of the pandemic, announced that the diner would close.
Bishop and the six other co-owners, made up of managers, servers, and two longtime chefs, say the former owner of Bette's is allowing them to use the restaurant's recipes and the names of its specials.
Bishop says the new owners are aiming to reopen the diner at the end of February.
