We all had salads, and they were all very good. However, I think they specialize in deserts. The desert case had some very nice items in it. We were too full to try any though.

We stayed nearby and really enjoyed eating at the Buttercup. The food was tasty, fresh and the menu was extensive. The service was great and the drinks prices were affordable. The atmosphere was relaxed.

We ate here twice while staying nearby. My oatmeal and my husband's omelets were gigantic, but tasty. Coffee was adequate, and refilled regularly. Good and friendly service.

I ordered the chicken fried steak it was cooked perfect but the gravy is average get the biscuit it's really good. It's really hard to get a refill on coffee if 1 cup is all you need then order they don't come around for refills on coffee or water

After the wedding, the next day we had a family's breakfast with 16 people. We were set up in a large back room and had excellent service. All of the meals were large and tasty. Waitress did everything to make our breakfast pleasurable.

I really enjoyed Buttercup. Its one of those places with large portions of home-style food. They also had excellent baked goods such as banana walnut muffins. The service was a little slow, however. They seemed to be thin on staff the morning we were there.

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.
