Siegelman's coauthors (Sue Conley and Bette Kroening) are the chef-owners of a very popular Berkeley, California restaurant, Bette's Oceanview Diner. It serves an eclectic updated diner menu, but customers start lining up for breakfast (including pancakes at 6 a.m.). And here are the recipes: not just buttermilk and buckwheat pancakes and sourdough waffles, but cheese blintzes, Suzette's ``Crepes Suzette,'' potato latkes, and more. The text is well written and entertaining, the recipes good and quite diverse. Recommended for area and larger collections.
