Butler had been on my list of coffee shops to try during my visit as I’d heard they did great coffee and that they certainly did. The surprise here was the bacon and egg roll. Oh boy, it was phenomenal. An excellent send off to...my trip to Philly!More

Came upon this little gem by accident. Great food, friendly staff with good coffee! Cafe is beautifully decorated and it was lovely to sit and watch the kitchen crew prepare a range of goodies for the lunchtime hordes.

Stopped in after a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Upscale cafe with great pastries and coffee, as well as a friendly staff. Very relaxing.

A cute little cafe right under the Bridge. Coffee excellent. Filled with locals which is always a good sign.

Being an Aussie I’m very critical of sausage rolls, but I can assure that Butler had the most delicious one I’ve ever eaten. Fantastic coffee as well. Great atmosphere and really cute store with gorgeous lighting. We even were amazed by the sight of other...people’s food. Great experience and will definitely be returning.More

I am hesitant to write a review because this place is already getting too crowded, but they really do deserve it. Pastries are on-point, and very reasonably priced. Nice quiet atmosphere during weekday mornings.

We went for a short coffee break and a chat after arrival in Brooklyn. This a nice, light-filled place to linger over a beverage. The service was very pleasant. My cappuccino was mellow and flavorful. I usually like strong Italian coffee, but enjoyed the change...to a milder type. My companion ordered the turmeric latte but found it much too strongly flavored and was unable to finish it. Would consider going back in the future to try the food which has been well rated.More

There's a reason this place gets only raves! In most ways it's your typical cute little NY breakfast spot. However the food is seriously perfect! We had brunch followed by some baking and both were awesome. Not to be missed when you're in Williamsburg! Also...very friendly service, and the chef patiently explained all of the baked goods to me.More

I met my cousin at Butler for breakfast recently and it was such a lovely place! New "hip" menu items, such as turmeric lattes, while maintaining that old-school café vibe with a cute little patio so you can sit outside. The service was wonderful. Friendly...and helpful. The latte was delicious - they have almond milk so you're good if you don't eat/drink dairy - and the breakfast empanadas were SO good. I loved this place. Would definitely go back next time I'm in the city!More
