Description: Real American food is what we offer at Butter is Better Diner & Bakery. We pride ourselves on making food the old-fashioned way. No shortcuts and no MSG. We make our own Corned Beef, Pastrami, Pulled Pork, Canadian Bacon, All-beef hamburgers, Pickles, Sauerkraut, Jams. etc. Most of what we offer can be served Gluten Free. We make our own gluten-free bread, bagels, brownies, cookies, and all kinds of cakes. Of course, we also offer a big variety of standard bakery items made with wheat flour. For breakfast we offer such classics as Eggs Benedict, homemade buttermilk pancakes (regular and gluten-free) waffles, and homemade sausages. And, of course, bagels-and-lox. If you're craving old-fashioned American food, the kind it's hard to find even in the States, give us a try.

Excellent food - and a wide selection of gluten free breads that actually taste GOOD! Breakfast or lunch.

My friend ordered the pumpkin and carrot soup, which had the consistency of baby food. Tasted bland and lacked liquids. The bread we ordered with it was out, and we were informed about that moments before the dish arrived. After the dish was gone before turning cold, my corned beef sandwich arrived. It was the most dry meat possible and couldn't be eaten. The full plate was just cleared without asking if things were okay. Since we came for cake we still ordered the New York Cheesecake and the lemon meringue. Just awful. The cheesecake tasted starchy and the meringue was soggy and overly sweet. Not recommended.

It's not always the case that a reviewer gives objective evidence of his or her defects in taste. I suppose I should be grateful that in this case he or she did. I'm referring to the comments about our cheesecake. Apart from starch in the crust, which is where it's to be expected, there is absolutely no starch at all in our cheesecake. None. Zero. Zip. Nada. This is real New York style cheesecake. The only ingredients in the cheese portion are Cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, lemon juice, real vanilla, and eggs. We have lots of Jewish people from the east coast of the US as our customers and they rave about our cheesecake. As they do about our old-fashioned corned beef, which we cure for 21 days. Hardly anyone does that anymore. Maybe the reviewer's reaction has roots in something physiological. In that case, he or she should seek medical attention. I'm glad that he or she won't be getting any more of ours.

I had the pleasure of meeting the owners who were very nice people .The food is a little similar to Bake&Bite (from whom they took over this shop)so not surprisingly I liked it and I appreciate gluten free is a must for some.They also opened one near Rimping in NIM city

We didn't go into this place because of the reviews, but to get out of the rain. It turned out to be a really good idea as we had some of the best food ever. Everything was made with care and wouldn't be out of place in a New York deli. Excellent selection of cakes and pastries, well worth tracking this place down if you visit Chiang mai.
