Cute cottage restaurant in revitalized Bay St Louis Area

Cute little cottage restaurant close to the beach. Service was friendly, but it was early breakfast, yet had to wait for them to brew coffee. Even though there was only on there table with a couple, they forgot all about our coffee and our silverware. Food was good, but not great, although nice... read more

Food is average, location is great, service is ok...but it seems when families and couples are out to have lunch, The Buttercup is always closed. We've been twice during posted business hours in the past year when it was closed. Disappointing.

Vegetarian options. Meat eating options. Cookies!! Ice cream is blue bell, so it'll be around again shortly, hopefully. Only two people were working, one waitress and one cook, but they handled it like total bosses, even with a torrent of patrons coming 10 minutes to closing.

I have been here twice. They have tasty food out here in this little resort town with city subtleties. Food worthy of New Orleans with country attention and friendliness!

I researched breakfast places between New Orleans and Biloxi for our car trip along the way. Based upon the reviews, I opted to stop here. It was very disappointing considering the good reviews for breakfast. During my research, I tried to find a menu for Buttercup but couldn't so made my choice based strictly on reviews. When we arrived and... More

The owner has moved back to Bay St. Louis because it is a great place with great people and the Buttercup fits right in with great service and good food.

My wife and I stopped here on our way to New Orleans. Beautiful little stop. We were able to eat outside and enjoy the amazing weather. My wife had the pancakes and she said they were delicious. Also got to take some yummy coffee to do, which was nice.

We've been here a couple of times - once for breakfast and once for lunch - both served all day. Both times the food was well prepared and delicious. Very small, quaint and inviting little café. Popular with the locals.

Buttercup offers something a little harder to find on the Gulf, vegetarian options. My Veggie Panini was mouth watering along side their signature Bay Potatoes. While passing through Bay Saint Louis it was the best choice for me, a veggie seeker in the land of seafood. Clean as could be, friendly staff and full menu.
