Great Eggs Benedict, home fries and apricot pastry. There was four in our party and they all enjoyed their dishes. Very packed with people, but that's the price you pay for food this good.

Just one step in the door and you are in for a treat. The food selection was really good as well as the taste of the food. One of the tastiest sandwiches and pastries that I experienced in a long time. The bread was worth the trip. Good coffee as well.

Always a favorite. Now that I stopped eating animals for ethical, heath and environmental reasons was stoked to see they had many super attractive animal-free options.

In SC for two days and we ate here three times. The people are friendly and be food is fresh and good. The chibatta bread is the best. We had three different sandwiches and two different salads no complaints about any if it. Will come here again when we visit.

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!
