A picturesque oasis in this remote area, not far from the freeway. Local art photos on the wall, a Franklin stove in the corner, worn wood flooring, friendly staff. We enjoyed the tortilla soup, a big salad, and pie. A first-rate place to stop for...More

Very cute breakfast place that has an outside deck to eat on. Great brunch. The hazelnut blackberry French toast was outstanding. The omelet was also good and the hash brown potatoes had a little kick and were great. Highly recommend and a hidden gem.

Nice servers and tasty omelette. Spinach and swiss cheese, all fresh. The sketchy review of early May says everything about the reviewer, and does no justice to the quality of this friendly and airy restaurant.

The building that now houses Butterfields Cafe started out as Knapp’s Butcher Shop at the turn of the century and was Nightingale’s General Store until the 1960s. George Merich, who had purchased and was renovating another rural property in the foothills of the Catskills, would pass by the derelict, flood-ravaged property every weekend and thought, Someone should save that building. After 10 years of renovating his home, he bought this building despite his naysaying friends and ignoring offers to tear it down, envisioning a homey, comfortable cafe with home-cooked meals, top-notch coffee and baked goods, and outdoor seating during the peak summer months when visitors would come to the Southern Tier to enjoy its natural beauty and outdoor sports. An architectural lighting designer by trade, George changed careers and realized his dream when he opened the lovingly restored Butterfields in 2011 after a three-year renovation. Featuring breakfast and lunch, Manhattan bagels, the best coffee for miles around, themed monthly dinners, and a brand-new Sunday brunch, George has created a unique oasis for locals and travelers alike. Butterfields can host your private party or cater your special event. Ask about our vacation rental apartment located one block from some of the best trout fishing in the northeast.
