We’ve never understood the phrase “you can’t have your cake and eat it too.” Why? Give us one good reason. What we do know is that Butter & Scotch an excellent place to have your cake, and yes, eat it too. At this bakery + bar mashup, you don’t just get to have a (highly delicious) cake, or pie, or donut, or sundae - you get to have alcohol with it too. Order yourself a fat piece of birthday cake with your martini, or combine your booze and sweets in one with Negroni pie. It’s kind of like adult Disneyland here - you really can’t go wrong.
