En route to Callander we were looking for somewhere to stop and eat and just happened upon the Buttercup Cafe and got parked reasonably nearby.
The quality and selection of food was excellent. I never noticed the specials board until after I’d ordered (it was huge, I must need new specs) but if I’d ordered the spicy cauliflower soup I would have missed out on the amazing vegetable chilli. It was a gorgeously orange meal, including onions, chickpeas, butternut squash & sweet potato served with perfectly cooked rice. The cheese and sour cream were served on the side making this vegan friendly and there were also some lovely crispy tortilla chips. I wish I’d asked for the recipe as the sauce was lovely and not too spicy. My carnivore husband had the burger which he said was lovely. It was huge and looked as if it was hand made and he said it was of excellent quality meat. The brioche bun was a perfect match. The fries didn’t come with the meal but they were a great side order. They were tiny, looked home made, roasting hot and very tasty. They were served in a bucket and paper that kept them piping hot as opposed to the trend to serve fries in mini drier buckets with holes which leave slow eaters with cold food. The staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. We loved this place and can’t wait to find an excuse to go back. Well done Buttercup!
