Real American food is what we offer at Butter is Better Diner & Bakery. We pride ourselves on making food the old-fashioned way. No shortcuts and no MSG. We make our own Corned Beef, Pastrami, Pulled Pork, Canadian Bacon, All-beef hamburgers, Pickles, Sauerkraut, Jams. etc. Most of what we offer can be served Gluten Free. We make our own gluten-free bread, bagels, brownies, cookies, and all kinds of cakes. Of course, we also offer a big variety of standard bakery items made with wheat flour. For breakfast we offer such classics as Eggs Benedict, homemade buttermilk pancakes (regular and gluten-free) waffles, and homemade sausages. And, of course, bagels-and-lox. If you're craving old-fashioned
