The food is really good, comfort food. We ate dinner there and I would go back. The homemade soup was excellent and the ribs were tender. I highly recommend it!

The service was fairly good, but no check back until meal was 80 percent finished. This was due to the server taking on more tables before she did the check backs. For me, that's a no, no. The portions are pretty good for the money, consequently I had no room for their luscious deserts. So had to get it to... More

The old time decor is very cute. Parking lot and entrance accessible to those in walkers. Typical lunch fare of sandwiches and soups was very good.

Well, first, parking is very limited, but you can park on the street and walk. Food was average cafe food. They have a pastry shop as you come in or go out. Great apple dumplings. I had a croissant sandwich, but it was dry. I would try a burger next time.

Their baked goods are great and we always take a dozen Apple, Cherry and Peach Strudels with us when we... More

I have never been disappointed with any meal at Buttercup. A few years ago their prices went up quite a bit, so we don't go as often.
