I've been coming to Ruidoso for years, but just recently stumbled across this "hidden gem." My family recently enjoyed a week of vacation and ate lunch at this place almost every day. It doesn't matter what you order -- soups, sandwiches, salads, quiche, dessert -- it's all good. My absolute favorite is the green chili quiche. It's worth the 3-4 drive from home just for that. The staff is super friendly and always makes you feel at home. Do yourself a favor and check this place out!

The Buttery is always on the top of my list to visit when I go to Ruidoso. It is the perfect girlfriend/cafe lunch. My absolute favorite is the chicken salad on a croissant with a side of soup. Sandwiches come with potato chips too. This last time I had a piece of chocolate mousse pie that was to die for. Everyone who works here is so nice and friendly. I never have a bad thing to say about this place. The one downfall of the cafe is parking but this can easily be overlooked when you get inside and start your yummy lunch!

Great sandwiches and desserts. They also have soups and quiches. I got a half sandwhich with soup or salad. The salads can be green, pasta or fruit. The buttermilk pie was superb. My husband loved it too. A little pricey for sandwiches but everything in Ruidoso is - it's a resort town. The only complaint is that their drink glasses are VERY small and we never got a refill. Also, they are only open until 2:30. Nice to sit outside in early October. Overall, very glad we had lunch there, and we will go back.

The buttermilk pie was not what I expected. It was dry and something was added other than the normal ingredients. Very small room and crowded together
