Butters Pancakes and Cafe

Consistently rated year after year by local diners as one of the best breakfast spots in the entire Phoenix metropolitan area, Butters Pancakes and Cafe always has a line out the door, especially on weekends. The reason why this breakfast/lunch establishment is so popular is because the portions are massive, the service impeccable, and the short-order skill in the kitchen is extremely efficient—not to mention the quality of the food is fantastic as well! The owners behind the restaurant have been in the business for more than 40 years, so they know how to do things right in all facets of the dining experience.

Those Remarkable Pancakes

Many breakfast establishments across the city claim to have the best pancakes in town. However, if you take the word from the Phoenix New Times, Butters Pancakes and Cafe in Scottsdale always tops the Best of Phoenix list year after year. Every day, the chefs in the kitchen prepare a scratch-made batter not only for the pancakes but for practically everything else on the menu as well. The pancakes are so good that people come all by themselves just to order a few stacks.

Morning & Afternoon Classics

The people of Scottsdale and those who venture in from other Phoenix suburbs know that breakfast is the name of the game at the restaurant, but lunch service is equally impressive. As mentioned above, the pancakes at Butters Pancakes and Cafe are phenomenal just plain, but the kitchen still likes to add some variety in versions with banana cream, Oreo cookies, apple, pecan, strawberry, blueberry, etc. All the standard favorites are on the menu such as French toast, waffles, omelets, eggs benedict, oatmeal and more. The specialty selections as well as the scramblers will leave everyone at the table with a hard decision to make. The lunch menu is more condensed, but every dish packs a wallop of flavor. Classic items such as sandwiches, wraps, and burgers will keep everyone happy, while a nice variety of salads make sure you get your greens.

Additional Info About Butters Pancakes and Cafe

In addition to the excellent breakfast and lunch menus, the kitchen also provides a menu for the little ones. Another noted feature at Butters is their orange juice maker; the machine is a contraption that does not squeeze the peel, and the result is a better tasting glass of OJ. Butters Pancakes & Café has two locations, one inside the Mercado on Hayden at 8300 N. Hayden Rd., and the other at 14795 N. Northsight Boulevard in the Northsight Crossing shopping plaza.
