We chose Buttercup for lunch. The food was ok, nothing special as far as lunch goes. We will try breakfast next time as that looked to be more appealing. Grilled tuna salad was average, grilled tuna over lettuce with chopped tomatoes. Reuben was cold. The cheese was not even melted. The marble bread was good. People are very nice, Wifi... More

"Why do you build me up (build me up) Buttercup, baby Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around?" Located inside of an old house, The Buttercup is one of the most popular places in Bay St. Louis for breakfast. This means that during peak times, you'll likely be waiting for a table. I'm not a...

Had a wonderful breakfast after Mass on Sunday. Were able to get a table outside and enjoy the Mississippi gulf breeze.

We had lunch at the Buttercup today and it was as good as we remembered. It has been a while since we visited Bay St. Louis and the Buttercup has been one of our favorite spots for breakfast or lunch. They use high quality ingredients. Sandwiches are always well prepared with interesting types of mayo spreads and artisan breads. Many... More

We had breakfast here in July and the food and service were excellent. There were quite a few locals in the restaurant and they were very friendly and helpful.

Great service, good food, but the menu is NOT straightforward. We both had a free side with our sandwhiches, order spinach from the list of sides, charged $4 extra. Confusing and disappointing. Two people, sandwhiches, water and spinach $25. We were hoping to keep the cost down at this stop. Didn't work.

Buttercup is a perfect little diner for breakfast or lunch. Today's visit on a Monday was as delightful as always. For today's noon visit, my friends and I went for sandwiches. My club panini was yummy, and my friend's tried the roast beef sandwich and rueben and both were also terrific. Previous visits for breakfast have been equally delicious.
