The service was a little spotty, but the food was good. The biscuits were quite good with the honey butter. My wife enjoyed the cinnascuit. Well known, frequented by locals as well as tourists, great 60's decor.

My nephew & I stopped in for breakfast at Buttercup before hopping on a train to Los Angeles. Our server was very helpful & friendly, and my meal of huevos rancheros was tasty. A good choice of restaurant for breakfast.
