This is the quintessential neighborhood cafe on the most picturesque corner of the South End. The Buttery was started by two South End residents who loved their neighborhood so much they wanted to ensure everyone could find that great cup of coffee and food. They started small but it continued to grow. This coffee shop has evolved over time to become a restaurant & bar that offers simple yet comforting food in the evening. For lunch the selections of fresh salads & sandwiches not to mention the pastries offer something for everyone. The shrimp fra diavolo pasta is always a favorite as is downstairs, especially in the cooler months. It is just so cosy. Whether you stop by for a coffee & treat or quick lunch or even a simple night out, you will enjoy feeling like a local at The Buttery. There is also an adjoining market, which sells gourmet pantry items and to go food & meals.
