Brunch at Bessie’s is the perfect place for anyone of any age to celebrate just about any occasion. From birthdays to anniversaries, nothing beats fluffy pancakes paired perfectly with a hot cup of coffee, and the sights of planes flying in and out of the Janesville airport.

Bessie’s makes any holiday or occasion special with its seasonal pancakes and drinks and holiday-themed cakes and waffles. Perfect for kids or the kid at heart.

Here are a few of our favorite holidays to celebrate at the diner and some of the tasty specials we have featured:


Give your sweetie something sweet or treat yourself with one of several Valentine’s Day treats like the red velvet waffle. The red velvet cake batter is topped with powdered sugar, cream cheese frosting and heart sprinkles, because nothing says I love you quite like red velvet!


Easter weekend features are fun, festive and family friendly! Every-bunny loves the carrot cake pancakes. They’re topped with a cream cheese glaze and toasted walnuts. If that wasn’t egg-citing enough, it’s even served with your choice of sausage or bacon. It’s a treat that’s sure to make everyone hoppy!


You’re going to want to grab your broomsticks (or plane) and fly in to taste all our spooky selections like the waffles or pancakes topped with cream cheese frosting, chocolate syrup, white chocolate chips and scary sprinkles! You could wash it all down with a graveyard milkshake topped with “dirt” and “worms!” The fun isn’t just for the kids. There’s plenty of treats for the adults too, like the blood orange and blackberry mimosa and the spiced red wine flavored with cinnamon sticks, oranges and star anise.


We know there’s a lot to be thankful for and our pumpkin pecan pancakes & waffles are definitely one of those things! Pumpkin base topped with a drizzle of cream cheese frosting and crunchy pecans, what more could you want!? Choose to pair it with a fall-inspired mimosa or a coffee for the ultimate autumn breakfast!

Whether you’re looking to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Grandparents’ Day or a special milestone, Bessie’s Diner is the perfect destination to make any get together one to remember!
