I so wish I could live in Santa Cruz, just so I could go visit this place a lot. We came here for breakfast and I was very impressed with all the options. There are two sides of the restaurant- one side is more like a sit down restaurant where you can get breakfast sandwiches and more meal type things,... More

We went there 2 mornings in a row for breakfast! Our favorite! French Toast melts in your mouth! Fresh squeezed orange juice also!

I ordered a chocolate cake for my wife's birthday from here. It was amazing. Personally, I'm not a fan of cakes, but this was a different experience.

We happened to see this place and pulled in for a morning treat while on vacation. YUM! So many good choices! I had a danish that reminded me of being in Solvang. There is seating indoors and out, which is nice. I would return the next time I am in town.

There are 3 top bakeries in SC, and The Buttery is the best, by far! And that's saying alot! The Wedding cakes are lovely, the special holiday treats are yummy (be sure to order in advance for pick-up for all those holiday treats), they make great bran muffins with raisins and seeded sourdough baguettes, and they have a wonderful European...

Ordered a cake here for my nieces birthday. Nicely decorated and exactly what I was expecting from the description on their website. While I was picking up the cake I decided to try some fresh cookies and they were delicious! My friend ordered a mocha and she said it was great. WIll come back ti this place for sure!

We recently purchased a mango cheesecake from The Buttery. Wow, was it good. They were so nice to ask if we wanted any writing on the cake....yes, we did! We had a new grand daughter's birth to celebrate. We took the cake to the family and everyone loved it. I have also eaten lunch there and they always have a... More

We had breakfast at the Buttery. Both my wife and her friend had some kind of Mex., dish which started out being too hot but later on it got better. I had the two eggs, ham, on rye. I held the cheese. The sandwich ended up being very plain and disgusting. But the guy next to me had something w/... More

The food is locally sourced and so fresh! The sandwiches and salads are awesome! Don't forget to visit the bakery side, cakes, cupcakes, cookies and fresh breads that are to die for! Decent prices, fun local presence and a charming outdoor patio.

Liked: Menu, food quality, speed of service, pricing. We had breakfast and the deli counter selections for lunch were so tempting and healthy that I wish we could have returned for lunch! The huevos rancheros dish was delicious and SPICY, and the croque madame was not traditional but a treat. It's amazing what simple ingredients, combined with attention to balancing... More
