I had read that this diner would be good for Gluten Free eating and since it wasn't too far from our hotel, I got a group of 6 of us to go for lunch. Great, fun decor. Great deli food. Who expects corned beef and...More

We spotted this place early in our stay as a possible great location for breakfast instead of the usual hotel ‘everything and the kitchen sink’ fare we had often had during our stay. It was a real treat for a Saturday morning - full breakfast...More

Wish I had discovered this one BEFORE my last day in Chiang Mai... food and decor were great, there are some quirky bits around the store if you look around a while. Only wish was that they had played more real 50s/60s music

This restaurant is fantastic. Their biscuits and gravy are fantastic. They have gluten free stuff as well. I have never been disappointed with my food there.

Wow. If you are craving American style breakfast/lunch, this place will leave you satisfied. Pancakes and eggs Benedict will keep me coming back but there are plenty of other options too.

Hi, Sorry to tell you that we don't prepare gluten-free meals in a separate place. We're really not the place to eat for people who get very ill from even a trace of gluten. If I knew of such a place I would share that... 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.
