We have had the pleasure of eating at Sweet Butter Kitchen for a few years now and always enjoy it. Today, after going to see our awesome florist, Mark Held, at Mark's Garden, we decided that
rain be damned, we were going to grab brunch at Sweet Butter. Despite the off and on rain, both the inside patio and out were filled to capacity as usual. Get in line and take a yellow laminated menu. While you wait be sure to look at all of the wonderful
knick knacks and delicious treats for sale. Today I browsed the reproduction Little Golden Books with titles like Our Daddy and Doctor Dan. Being an avid original Little Golden Book collector, I have all of the originals in mint condition
and was excited to see that someone else shares my kooky hobby. After checking out the bakery section to make sure there were no bacon cheddar scones (some of the best in the city) I had the Chicken & Waffles ($9.95) from the Weekend Menu. Jidori fried
chicken pieces are served atop a light Belgian waffle with sweet butter and some of the most wonderful pure maple syrup west of Vermont! Yes, we did ask for extra, it was that good. We also had the Pancake Breakfast ($7.95) which is 3 fluffy, perfect
buttermilk pancakes also served with sweet butter and pure maple syrup. Do you get why we needed so much syrup? A side of Nueske's Cherrywood Smoked Bacon ($4.50) made this meal perfect. What's better on a cold, rainy Saturday than a steaming oversized
cup of hot chocolate or some rich Intelligentsia coffee? Nothing! We love Sweet Butter for lunch too. My favorite sandwich is the Sweet Butter BLT ($10.95 + $1 for avocado). Tons of Applewood smoked bacon, tomato, little gem, and aioli are piled
onto country bread and served with crispy shoestring fries. This sandwich is fantastic! My friend A, loves the South of the Boulevard Salad ($12.95). Chopped grilled free range chicken, romaine, black beans, tomato, grilled corn, avocado, cotija cheese,
and tortilla chips are tossed in buttermilk dressing. When she gets up for water, dont tell her, but I've often snuck a bite. It's stellar! Stop by the bakery for some macaroons, cookies, muffins, or any number of delicious treats! Sweet Butter Kitchen
