Clouds invaded the skies in dark masses as cold patter of H2O fell from the rolling darkness in rare instances of rain in SoCal on a quiet Sunday. It was cold and it was deary weekend and of course that’s perfect time for brunch (although breakfast is perfect 24/7). We had gone to most places within 5 mile vicinity of our city, Diamond Bar, and needed new ideas so we hopped onto Yelp. Boyfriend and I stumbled onto Butter Cafe & Bakery by chance and quite enjoyed how delicious the food looked and decided on this location as our spot.
Parking is easy and loved that many of the spots were close to the door so that it wasn’t difficult at all to maneuver. Handicap accessibility is especially more evident to me now that I’m on that end while I’m recovering from broken limbs. It was definitely great to know that they were a place that were handicap friendly and had no judgement. Staff were beyond friendly and helpful from ordering to helping me to tables and walking me out of the restaurant.
We ordered a vegetarian omelette filled with amazingly delicious spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes as well as a breakfast sandwich (more like a burger since it came with buns). Both dishes came with a side of skillet house potatoes as we waited for host to jot our names down for an open table. This waiting system was the only thing that I didn’t quite love about Butter Cafe, it felt very backwards as we ordered then waited for a table. Although they did setup a very cozy and warm place for patrons to wait for their tables, but overall wait for table and food felt pretty long.
The omelette was delectable with such delicate texture that reminded me of steamed eggs, something I’ve always loved as a child. The cooked spinach and mushrooms were the highlights of the dish that complemented the eggs so well. It wasn’t overly salted or overcooked like some places do with their eggs. I thoroughly enjoyed my dish as did my boyfriend and his breakfast sandwich made with two cage-free eggs, Swiss, all-natural sausage, tomato, arugula and housemade mayo on challah bread. Served with a side of rosemary-thyme potatoes.
This is settled with the decor of the restaurant that we really loved. It was clean and modern but had the organic and ornate feel of vintage era from their choices of wooden tables and chairs as well as wall pieces. The open windows gave plenty of natural lighting that definitely helped the restaurant feel so open. We had a lovely time here and a place we would definitely come back to.
