Local Favorite - The Buttery

The Buttery

Located at the corner of Soquel and Branciforte Ave, the Buttery is a long time favorite of locals.  The restaurant is divided into two sections: the bakery and the cafe.  The bakery has fresh breads, cookies, pastries, and cakes.  When I'm cheating on my gluten free diet, my favorite is the carrot cake cupcake - the butter cream frosting is fabulous.  :-)  The cafe is a great spot for a breakfast or lunch.  The menu includes made to order sandwiches, salads, a homemade soup and a daily special.   (I  love the local lettuce salad with the lemon vinaigrette and avocado.)  The pre-made cold case salads are perfect if you are on the go - there are several healthy options and they are made daily.  There is plenty of outdoor seating which makes it a great spot to bring your dog.
