Little place big flavor. I am not a big quiche guy, but something said try it, so I did. Pleasantly surprise. The quiche was a green chili and ham delight. The price was decent for both a tourist trap small town and for what turned out to be very filling. My wife ordered the crab salad croissant with green chili... More

went for lunch good strong heady coffee, salad and sandwich. They are pie central, super good and many in our group got "to go" pies. Recommended by locals, reasonably priced for a tourist town. we found up front parking but this could be tricky for many. Two thumbs up

Great little restaurant to get away from the crowds while still on main street. The food and the atmosphere give you a chance to relax and enjoy the great food. Try the handmade pies.

Had tomato basil soup & half chicken salad on croissant. Soup was different. Tasted like dried herbs. Not the usual taste. Good salad nothing great. Husband had a potato soup. Which turned out to be a potato green chile soup ( husband doesn't eat spices). Good but was uneaten because of spice. He also had 1/2 ham on sourdough. Dessert... More

Great lunch or breakfast spot. It is very popular so you may have a wait. Small cafe is you do not eat outside.

I dropped in recently to redeem a gift certificate that I had purchased at a fundraiser for our local Humane Animal Shelter. The certificate was well over a year old but was honored without question. I truly appreciate this small Mom & Pop cafe for their support of the animals. This time I had the pimiento cheese sandwich, tomato bisque... More

Even in January, what a GREAT patio and view outside...with table side service too! Loved the team --- spot on recommendations and FRESH ingredients and daily soup/sandwich/salad specials. And yes --- tasty deserts and cookies too -- we couldn't resist!

The Buttery is and has been one of my favorite places for lunch in Ruidoso. Service is always friendly, and the food varied and delicious. My favorites are the Tomato-Basil soup and the ham, cheddar and green chile quiche, but their sandwiches and salads are very good as well. The restaurant is small, only about 10 tables inside, but when... More
