So Happy we visited

Had breakfast here! It was nice, standard. But the bakery is amazing. We had some cup cakes, carrot cakes. So yummy. I want some right now. Go there!

I have loved this bakery since I discovered them in 2014 to make our wedding cake. You cannot go wrong with their cupcakes, pastries our other tasty delights. They also make breakfast bites and great sandwiches. Get there early for the best of their pastries and buttery croissants and be sure to take a crunchy baguette home with you. Always... More

Because this place looked good from the outside, we stopped in for lunch while visiting Santa Cruz. This is a bakery, salad, sandwich, soup place. It's very popular with locals and tourists. We ordered at the counter and took our number to an outside table. The server brought our food to us, and what a treat! My curried chicken salad... More

Love this place! We make a habit to stop in for at least a cookie and coffee! Nice outdoor seating. Easy parking

This is easily the best bakery in the city of Santa Cruz. At one time or another I've had every treat offered. They're all good and many of them are excellent, including the stupefyingly tasty Chocolate Dream Cookies. If you don't love these, you don't love chocolate! They have, as well, delicious breakfast twists and possibly the most marvelous Key... More

My friend and I stopped for breakfast here based on other TripAdvisor reviews and we're not disappointed. I had the French toast with fresh blueberries, strawberries, and bananas with a coffee. She had the basic breakfast and was equally pleased. We both night pastries and treats to take for the ride home- a delicious chocolate chip/macadamia nut cookie and mixed... More

They also have excellent breakfast and lunch choices. Their chai is pretty good too. Its nice that you can eat inside or out and take out is quick. It can get... More

A delightful, fresh, fun breakfast spot in Santa Cruz. Great bakery selections as well as comfort egg dishes. I had their version of Eggs Benedict and it was enjoyable. Good espresso/coffee bar. Place was packed but we found a table under an umbrella out doors amongst the dogs, kids, families, musicians, and a typical Santa Cruz variety of locals. Only... More

There is absolutely no question in my mind, the Buttery cakes and bakery goods are THE BEST IN SANTA CRUZ - period. I am a baker and certified cake decorator and chose the Buttery to bake my wedding cake because, hands down, the samples I tasted were so delicious I was very impressed. I wasn't disappointed. A Buttery representative sat... More

I've been coming here for years, since they first opened and they were just a small bakery. It's been wonderful to watch them grow, serving savory dishes now, too. The pastries and cookies are really good. Cakes are the best in town; moist and delicious. Excellent daily specials and a seasonal rotating selection of salads, sandwiches and entrees make it...
