We went twice in 24 hours if that’s any indication of how good the food is! Their shakes are incredible (highly recommend the strawberry shake using their homemade strawberry frozen yogurt). This is the only restaurant in Asia we’ve found with true Southern American biscuits!...More

Went for breakfast and we were hopeful and then disappointed. The decor is very cool and authentic but the breakfast we had was mediocre at best. Butter is Better just did not live up to the hype for us

I was not expecting too much of a taste when I decided to go because many places sell those homemade products and the result is just below average... But here I have to say that the cakes are simply amazingly tasty. And as a baker...More

I tried the famous gluten free pancakes. Amazing but if you add blueberries it’s an extra 46THB, a cup of tea? Another 46THB. By the time I left breakfast had cost 275THB I guess you are paying for a Western concept/themed diner. Worth it once.

My digestive system is not used to all this spice and it needed a break. We found this diner and my system thanked me. I ordered the English breakfast and it was legit. Even comes with baked beans. The potatoes were super soft and fluffy....More

Real American food is what we offer at Butter is Better Diner & Bakery. We pride ourselves on making food the old-fashioned way. No shortcuts and no MSG. We make our own Corned Beef, Pastrami, Pulled Pork, Canadian Bacon, All-beef hamburgers, Pickles, Sauerkraut, Jams. etc. Most of what we offer can be served Gluten Free. We make our own gluten-free bread, bagels, brownies, cookies, and all kinds of cakes. Of course, we also offer a big variety of standard bakery items made with wheat flour. For breakfast we offer such classics as Eggs Benedict, homemade buttermilk pancakes (regular and gluten-free) waffles, and homemade sausages. And, of course, bagels-and-lox. If you're craving old-fashioned American food, the kind it's hard to find even in the States, give us a try.
