“Fun, tasty and great local color.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

I've had several really good meals at the Buttery Bakery in the past couple of years. Great for breakfast, brunch or lunch, with a varied menu, fresh ingredients and amazing baked goods. The atmosphere is very Santa Cruz...casual, vibrant, hip and fun. Feels like a neighborhood place. Cozy -- also known as crowded during the busy times -- with seating both indoors and outside. Try it!

“Hot. Buttered. Latte.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

It sounded strange at first, but I was pleasantly surprised after trying the hot buttered latte. Their sandwiches are good, too.

“Pastry Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I've eaten here twice now and both times I got a savory breakfast entrée, the first time was good, The second time was mediocre and the next time I go I am going to eat a pastry...I think I will be happier!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Referred to Buttery by a local and it did not disappoint. Busy bustling place but we did not have a long wait at all, the food was spectacular and the service very friendly. Took home lots of baked goods-garlic sour dough is worth making a trip back!!
