You know you are 'in trouble' when the restaurant name has 'butter' in it! I had heard from locals that this was a great restaurant for breakfast all the way to early dinner. I have only had the breakfast fare but boy so good! It opens at 7a-7p. I always try to support local business when I travel so this... More

Really Good yoghurts and musli. The sandwich was good. Good looking cakes (didn't try them!!) and allright selections of items to put in the sandwich for a vegetarian. Very buisy and the tricket system isn't used by everyone working there, but we got our food and a table :-)

Great place to visit for breakfast. The line inside is a bit confusing but otherwise everything was great. Would definitely return.

Wonderful baked goods, coffee, and custom sandwiches. Take a number and hang out while smelling the fresh-baked sweet rolls, bread, and cookies as they come out of the oven. This is a wonderful Santa Cruz asset, much like Shopper's Corner across the street. My perfect day would be to have a large coffee and a ham and cheese croissant, followed... More

Great place for breakfast in Santa Cruz. Easy parking, as it is a little way off center from downtown. A little confusing when you get there -- there is one line for hot breakfasts, and another for baked goods. But service is fast and the options are interesting and tasty. Indoor and outdoor seating. Great vibe.

Some of the most beautiful cakes/pastries I have ever seen. I was in for a birthday cake but wanted to buy everything. Didn't get to try the breads but they looked amazing! The Raspberry cake tasted as amazing as it looked.

The cakes are extraordinary: dense, moist and bursting with flavor. Our top choice for cakes to celebrate special occasions.
