Have had breakfast there 3 times now. We’ve had eggs, skillet, omelets, pancakes and everything has been very good. Charming place with friendly and efficient wait staff. Average price. Oh and I can’t eat pork so I love the turkey sausage.

We were there for breakfast and the small dining area was packed that morning around 9AM. I think they have more parking space than the table space inside. We ordered two Chorizo Skillets with coffee. They charged $2.19 for a cup of coffee and we...More

My husband and I come here at least once a month. The meals are tasty and service is good. The one downside is depending on the time of day, meals can take longer to make. Service staff is top notch.

I've given up on Bread and Butter. When they first opened I was willing to give them so slack on the poor service - they had just opened and it seemed to perhaps be a family run restaurant. I thought perhaps they needed some 'learning...More
