Went to The Butcher & Baker Cafe after a recommendation from a local. It did not disappoint! Our breakfast was delicious not to mention the pastry and side of Beets we took to be eaten later. Highly recommend. Great place to pick up To-Go items for hike, etc...

This place was hopping around 8:30 on a Friday. Their sausage breakfast burrito is very good, and ready for a take-&-go meal. Also, very good drip coffee.

We went here twice because it was so good. I had the salads which were sooooooo good!!!! My partner had the bagel one day and some big breakfast another. We both enjoyed our food and the coffee and juices. Sit at the bar it's quicker.

First, get in line to place your order. Get a menu on the counter. Read the chalk boards for specials while in line. Pick up silverware and napkins then find a table if you can. Food is very good!! Good soups too! Chocolate chip cookies are amazing. Behind the counter lots of prepared deli style veggies and salads. A lot... More

And it wasn't for lack of other options. There were other places for coffee and lunch/breakfast/beer. But, this place is great. There are tons of food options. For breakfast there are pastries, breakfast burritos (veggie/non-vegan and meat), and a bunch of other standards. There are coffee drinks all day long. At one point I wanted breakfast, but had lost track... More

We were a "walk by" and ducked into The Butcher and Baker for something to share for a late breakfast. Chose the Chilaquiles, Essentially egg, chile and cheese nachos with avocado and black beans. Added what appeared to be fresh squeezed orange juice and we were satisfied customers. Friendly staff, food kind of took a long time given what we... More

We wandered in here for a late breakfast. Luckily arriving by 11:15 as they stop serving breakfast at 11:30. I had a Summer Omelette -- I was expecting something within the ordinary -- this was extraordinary. I'm not sure even how to break it down. The eggs were super fresh and therefore especially tasty, but the filling took ordinary ingredients... More

We were lured by the unique pairing of fried chicken and flights of champagne served on Wednesdays. Having read previous reviews we thought we would have to seat ourselves and order at the counter in a type of cafeteria setting, but upon arriving, we were seated right away at a table of our choice. The service was fast and friendly.... More

Picked up a ham and swiss cheese croissant, which was very tasty. The cafe is nice and has a reasonable selection of sandwiches. Bakery offerings, however, are limited to blueberry muffins, cinnamon rolls, croissants and a couple of tarts. Nice place for a quick bite.
