At Buttercloud Bakery and Cafe eating in the clouds is one of those life experiences you just shouldn’t miss and their “butterpals” in Medford, Oregon know it’s a fine art. Co-owner and Southern Oregon transplant (from Seattle), Ellen Holub, is the resident baking angel, presenting a monthly rotation of ethereal cakes, tarts, scones, cookies, muffins, and a daily supply of her signature buttermilk biscuits.

The popular biscuits serve as substantial containers for their creative sandwiches using seasonal produce and meats. With a focus on creating a sustainable kitchen, they source ingredients from other local artisans and growers, including occasional deliveries of flavorful sausage from Willow Witt Ranch, a working farm located at 5,000 feet elevation on 440 pristine acres in the clouds just east of Ashland. The ranch is well known in the region for its certified-organic meats from their pigs, goats, and chickens.

With dreamy sweets like Turtle Cake, Chocolate Cranberry Tart, and Buttercloud Dream Cake and Coconut Cloud, you can get a new heavenly taste sensation every week of the year. Together with her husband and co-owner, Gibson Holub, they have established a new benchmark for “if you build it they will come”.

The cafe is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch: Monday through Saturday 7am – 3pm, and Sunday 8am – 2pm
