    The first time I went there, I ordered gf waffle. It tasted soooo weird and then I found an ENORMOUS piece of onion in the waffle! Cross contamination alert!!!!! Also their coffee tastes burned and is disgustingly strong. No one in my party wanted to drink it. The menu is super overpriced and it really is nothing special. Not a unique place and too expensive, cramped and loud inside, and not very good service. Been there 3 times, will never go back.

    the best GF waffles! the use a dedicated gluten-free waffle iron to make sure it is safe for Celiacs. I also had a great gluten free omelet with Swiss cheese, grilled chicken and tomato. I'm looking forward to eating here again! I noticed they had gluten free cupcakes too

    I am a super sensitive Celiac and have never had problems here. They are very knowledgeable and it is GOOD! Just be aware that they close at 3 PM

    We eat at the Butter Cafe often and love it. Great food and drinks...even the decaf is great and the hot chocolate is to die for! GF waffles and bread (for lunch I always get the GF BLT w/avocado and the house potatoes). I am gluten intolerant and my fiance has celiac. We have never had a problem. Don't forget to try the GF desserts!

    The sandwich was great! The seasoned potatoes were gluten free and heavenly. The gf chocolate chip cookie was a bit dry. I believe the owner is gluten and dairy free.

    Butter Cafe is one of the better options in Dayton, especially if you are a gluten-free eater. I'm not, but was brought here by my gluten-free sister about 8 months ago. I'm shocked the coffee isn't more popular in the reviews on this site. The coffee is full-bodied and brewed to perfection. It's true they charge per cup, but so do coffee shops that offer the same quality coffee. Food was also delicious and served in generous proportions.

    Expensive but pretty good and lots of gf options. Potatoes ARE gluten free despite what a previous poster said

    Being GF friendly is not enough. Coffee is bad (& they charge per cup - in a breakfast cafe?!!!) and cups don't keep coffee warm. Service was bad 3 out of 4 visits. GF waffle maker out of service once (that's why we went!). Chairs are so cheap they are downright dangerous. Wanted so bad to love it. Too bad as GF breakfast out is hard to find!

    Very loud. Prices are high. Drinks are in jelly jars. Surprised that the gluten free bread is that old dense rice flour bread that is awful and flavorless However, the omelet was good. The coffee is very strong they put a large basket of creamers on the table but if you like black coffee that's no good. The potatoes aren't gluten free and I got charged 1.50 extra to substitute gluten free toast that was rot gut. Breakfast for two people was about $23
