“An Oakland Landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I just have a very good breakfast. It's been a few months since I've been here but it is still just what I was hoping for. The food is still very good and my server (Barbara) was excellent. The menu is extensive and they are very flexible when it comes to substitutions. They have great pies too.

As I recall, I've been here somewhere between 15 to 20 times over the span of 10 years and the results have been the same. If you are near Broadway in Oakland, give it a shot.

“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I had read reviews of the Buttercup grill/kitchen and was really looking forward to going. I was disappointed to find that it was similar to an IHop or even Denny's. One visit was enough.

“Good breakfast down by Jack London Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I was checking out the area by Jack London Square. It had been quite a few years since I have visited the area. Buttercup Kitchen sits in the same block with The Inn at Jack London Square. This restaurant is on Broadway at 2nd street and is also near the Amtrak station. If you are looking for a diner, this is a fine choice. The service was attentive even though the place was busy on a Sunday morning. After breakfast you can walk down to the bay walk and check out the booths at the Farmer's Market if you are there on a Sunday.
