As a mother of two, I am always on the look-out for new and great places to eat. I was drawn to Butterfield's based on the numerous glowing reviews and “best breakfast” awards it had received in the local press. Not to mention that every friend I know in the area said that this was “the best” place for breakfast. Boy, were they all right! This place is great! The lines can sometimes be long on the weekends, but they move fast and are worth the wait.
While my children love this restaurant, I feel just as comfortable going there with my girlfriends for brunch and it is not unusual to see the business-men in suits ""closing the deal"", to the tourists from the local golf resorts, to the occasional athlete and movie star.
While there isn't enough space here to fully describe the delightful food, put simply, their menu has every breakfast staple covered and done exceedingly well and in a creative manner.
In summary, I think Butterfield's follows the simple recipe for success that so many restaurants are unable to execute: (1) fresh and great tasting food served fast and consistently, (2) cleanliness and (3) great service.
In all of my visits, the quality has never wavered and each experience has been better than the last. If you are looking for breakfast in Scottsdale be sure to check out Butterfield's!
