THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Butterscots Restaurant Review

: Located at Cairdean Estate in north St. Helena, Butterscots is a welcome stop for a light meal on any wine country itinerary. While waiting for a frothy cappuccino, peruse the café-cum-country market offering an eclectic cookbook collection, quality linens, hand-blown glassware and artisanal barware. On offer: homemade baked goods, panini and salads for dining on the sunny patio or for take-out picnic provisions. Try an assortment of freshly made seasonal salads including butternut squash with pickled Gulf shrimp or marinated mushrooms on little gem lettuces. For the heartier appetite, order the pork knuckle sandwich with caramelized onions and cheddar on a griddled French roll. Breads are a must-try, especially the seaweed bread, which adds a pinch of moisture, salt and texture to traditional sourdough. Homemade cookies, puddings and ice cream sandwiches are real sweet treats.
