My family of 16 stops at the Buttercup every summer on our way to and from South Lake Tahoe. We have been going here for the last ten years. It is a very family friendly place and has good food. Their baked goods are great and we always take a dozen Apple, Cherry and Peach Strudels with us when we... More

I have never been disappointed with any meal at Buttercup. A few years ago their prices went up quite a bit, so we don't go as often.

Stopped here for late breakfast with my wife on our way to Carson City. It has an old-fashioned country cafe theme with a cute, cozy feel and decor - including numerous antiques - to match. The menu is extensive and features some interesting breakfast/brunch options. I had a California-style omelet with bacon and a very generous serving of avocado; my... More

Breakfast was amazing. The best I had on our trip to California! We stopped here on our way back from Lake Tahoe. We both had omelets and hash browns. The coffee was delicious.

Haven't been to Placerville for some time, even though I lived in the area when I went to high school. Got into town looking for something local, and after making a run up main street and back, chose this place, hoping for a local diner type meal. Was not disappointed. We both had burgers. I had the sourdough cheeseburger and... More

We came with a group and were separated and told to wait before being seated. We waited an inordinately long period of time before finally being seated, away from our group. Then the table service was terrible - it took forever to take orders, deliver them and there was no service in between to refill coffee cups or ask if... More

My hubby and I had breakfast here. The atmosphere has a country feel to it- the service was fast and friendly and the food was great with generous portions. This is a small town, and it is always better to eat at a local place instead of a chain restaurant. It is family friendly and inexpensive as well. The menu... More

Great breakfast and awesome service!! The portions were generous and the biscuit is so big and fluffy! It reminded me of my grandma's breakfast!
