Manager is extremely rude. Wait is ridiculously long. We sat for almost an hour before we got our food. Eggs were undercooked. Will not dine there again and would not recommend to anyone.

Blundered into this place after getting off the highway at lunch time. What a find! In March, it looks like a run-down derelict from the outside. Inside, it is clean, bright and welcoming with a small space crowded with tables and an open (tiny) kitchen....More

The building that now houses Butterfields Cafe started out as Knapp’s Butcher Shop at the turn of the century and was Nightingale’s General Store until the 1960s. George Merich, who had purchased and was renovating another rural property in the foothills of the Catskills, would pass by the derelict, flood-ravaged property every weekend and thought, Someone should save that building. After 10 years of renovating his home, he bought this building despite his naysaying friends and ignoring offers to tear it down, envisioning a homey, comfortable cafe with home-cooked meals, top-notch coffee and baked goods, and outdoor seating during the peak summer months when visitors would come to the Southern Tier to enjoy its natural beauty and outdoor sports. An architectural lighting designer by trade, George changed careers and realized his dream when he opened the lovingly restored Butterfields in 2011 after a three-year renovation. Featuring breakfast and lunch, Manhattan bagels, the best coffee for miles around, themed monthly dinners, and a brand-new Sunday brunch, George has created a unique oasis for locals and travelers alike. Butterfields can host your private party or cater your special event. Ask about our vacation rental apartment located one block from some of the best trout fishing in the northeast.
