We came here two years ago, and service was awful! Maybe we were just more prepared this time around but it was better. They are definitely a no nonsense kind of place. We are very friendly but last time you would have thought we were robbing the place asking to split the check up. This time we asked prior to... More

I come to Napa a couple of times a year, been to some awesome places but I have to go to Butter Cream on every trip. I do not make sweets a regular part of my diet, but the concoctions they create with apples, pastry and glaze are absolutely addicting. I can't stay away!

Great breakfast with reasonable prices. French toast was delicious and fluffy. Like a step back in time

While crowed at lunch time, this is a fun place to eat. Service is very friendly and the sandwiches are made on freshly baked breads. Pies and milkshakes are to die for! Try sitting at the counter if dining solo.

I love the locals only places. You can tell this diner is full of people that have been visiting for years. Old timers having coffee, grandparents bringing their grandkids, and local workers grabbing a good breakfast before work. Breakfast is breakfast, but a few notables about this place: their pancakes and waffles tasted really good, the biscuits in their biscuits... More

Looking for local place for breakfast. Our bellmen at The Westin in Napa told us to try this place. So glad we went. Not fancy, old school, 50's decor & good breakfast food. Looks like a step back in time but they know what people want and at great prices. I wanted to take extra bakery back to the hotel.

Nice breakfast place, but their fame is from the donuts. Sunday mornings can be a bit of a feeding frenzy with a considerable line to purchase the limited supply of donuts. So, be early, or be sorry.

Our 2nd visit her, and this time it was for lunch. The counter had no wait at 12:30, and there were a few open tables as well. The service was fast and friendly. The Reuben sandwich was great . The bakery that is attached to the diner has amazing treats!

Share! Bakery and diner in one. Didn't really get to try the baked goods, but they had a nice front case of sweets. Breakfast with the family. Large omelet I couldn't finish. Too much cheese. But tasty. Busy , loud place. Plenty of locals and tourists alike.
