The Beginnings of The Cup

The story of Buttercup begins in 1988, when David and Debbie were just starting their family. At the time, David worked for an upscale dinner house.  They had a hard time finding a restaurant that offered fresh food, yet was casual enough to bring their children. They dreamed of owning a family style restaurant where they could get fresh home made food at an affordable price. Fast forward 28 years later, and you can find David, Debbie, and their three children working at the five locations in the Bay Area. Buttercup has truly become a family restaurant. 

  • Our goal is to serve our guests hearty, high quality food at a reasonable price.

  • We serve every meal of the day. Each location opens at 6 a.m. seven days a week, and the chefs transition seamlessly from breakfast to lunch to dinner.

  • The kitchen makes pretty much everything from scratch from Debbie's own personal recipes.

  • Dessert is a must here. When in doubt, order the signature upside-down apple-walnut pie, topped with a crunchy brown-sugar-and-walnut glaze.

  • We are proud to employ a loyal staff many of which have been with us for over 20 years. Together we are committed to providing you with old fashioned and friendly service.
