It was obvious from the cliental that this is a local place that's been around for over 20 years and the food and service were excellent. My son had pancakes and there was too much to eat, I had the waffle and it was top notch.

We were moving into a condo across the street and were starving. The line at the Oakland Grill was long so we decided to try this place, bad choice. The coffee was tasteless, my partner said that her hash was not great and my omelet was not hot when it got to the table and had much too much cheese... More

Excellent place to have breakfast: good food, reasonable prices and great service. Our waitress, Debbie, who has been there for maybe 20 years was the best! She had a great attitude. It was a perfect choice.

I usually go there for lunch for business. Comfortable atmosphere to talk and relax. I have taken many customers and have been taken there by vendors to talk business. Food id good and very reasonable. Service has always been great.

Pricey for basically a diner. Service is inconsistent and almost every food item is under seasoned or not seasoned at all. My business partner and I stayed at the co-located hotel for over 30 days and did frequent Buttercup, working our way through almost the entire menu.

I have been eating at Buttercups for years. Great family restaurant with great food. My "only" complaint is the service is slow, but very friendly. Since the food is great and the staff has great attitude, I don't complain about slow service. I have never had a bad meal there. Have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and always good... More

The waitress remembered by breakfast order on day 2. And she brought it to me pronto, because she could see I was in a hurry!

It's in the same structure as the Inn At Jack London Square; so you don't have to walk far for a decently priced meal in a coffee shop setting. But the restaurants just a block down the street are far better (and more expensive).

Located adjacent to the Inn at the Square at 233 Broadway. Serves and excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner. Servings are large and with entrees you coud easily share. Extensive menu and quick service. It is more along the lines of a Diner than a restaurant, but would recommend

Food was delicious and very competent and friendly wait staff. It was convenient in that it was next door to where we were staying.
