So disappointed to find that our favourite North Berwick cafe has reopened after a refit as a self service sandwich shop. No tasty, good value home cooked lunches or hot filled rolls any more, just soup, sandwiches and a small selection of scones and cakes. The town was buzzing on a sunny mid term day and most cafes were busy... More

Visited here today and was very disappointed. We have visited here on a number of occasions and have always been very happy with the food and the friendly staff. Now they don't do breakfasts or hot filled rolls. They still do soup and scones and some cakes but seem to concentrate more now on filled baguettes. We had soup and... More

Just the right place for a much-needed cooked breakfast and a pot of tea, which could be topped up when it had run out. Very good and would recommend.

A slightly cramped and basic interior, but a fairly wide range of snacks at good prices. Scottish fried breakfast was very good and macaroni cheese was excellent. Decent coffee too. The menu changes according to the time of time - so the choice isn't as wide as it seems

Visited here for breakfast on our way home from Edinburgh. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Excellent 'Traditional Scottish Breakfast' with a pot of tea each, cooked well and fantastic value for money. We were planning on getting one of the tasty looking scones afterwards (the cakes looked amazing) but the breakfast filled us up! Really enjoyed this little cafe and... More

Despite other venues, this cafe is so good I visited it twice in the one day - breakfast followed by afternoon tea. Breakfast was great and good enough to encourage a return visit later in the day for Afternoon Tea which was quite simply superb! A lovely three tiered array of home baked goodies that were delicious and generous in... More

Lovely little café and super friendly staff! Buttercup is a hard café to get a seat in and no wonder! I was finally able to grab a chair with my mom and we really enjoyed our coffee, I had a coconut and chocolate scone with clotted cream (delicious!) and a cappuccino which was great. Why 4 stars? It feels really... More

We dropped in for a cuppa and found this gem. Lovely staff and great service and food. Its tucked away on the street but once there you'll be surprised how nice it is.

This gorgeous wee cafe can easily be overlooked as you wander through the town but don't miss out on this fantastic little pit stop. The scones and cream teas were out of this world. The staff are ever so nice and friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The cleanliness of the toilets as well... More
