I recommend this place to everyone. every year on my birthday or my dads birthday or my grandpas birthday or somebody else in the families birthday my grandmother would always always buy a cake from the buttery here in santa cruz. they make the best cakes. there all delicious but i would def. recommend the carrot cake. i remember my grandma got me two cakes a couple years just cus she couldn't decide on which one she wanted to get.....and guess what, they were both excellent.
