Request to sit away from the corner fireplace table

Having only gone to this populate cafe for brunch and coffee I decided to try dinner. While the food was very good despite a long wait for it to arrive after ordering, I have to warn, do not sit near the fireplace. The downstairs dining area became a bit too warm and it was decided to turn on the air conditioning. The airconditioner was located right above our table and blowing directly at us and on our table. Aft... view more

You can taste where they get their name

I ordered a veggie burger and shared a side of fries with A. The veggie burger was good but I wouldn't call it a veggie burger, you know, if I was in charge of the menu. I'd call it a chickpea patty, or even a chickpea burger. Chickpea was the strongest flavor I tasted in the burger. And it tasted good, but not what I expected a veggie burger to be. It was served on a very large bun made from flaky bakery bread and a... view more

Cute as a Cupcake

The South End Buttery. It is a place I always mean to go to more often. \r \r Nestled cozily on the corner of Shawmut and gorgeous Union Park, entering the Buttery is like walking into the middle of one of their delicious cupcakes. Walls are painted cake batter yellow and the ceiling detail is both ornate and whimsical, as if it was piped from a pastry bag. Everything about its aesthetic is warm and inviting, from ... view more

Buttery: an urban oasis for afternoon tea

We love to drop by the Buttery on Shawmut avenue during the afternoons when it's not too busy. They have fantastic pastries and I always get the soymilk chai latte because it is delicious. It's a gorgeous little place in a quiet part of an otherwise busy neighbourhood. I would recommend this coffeeshop, although I have never tried the savoury food they have. Weekend mornings since they are very busy and I feel th... view more

I have yet to eat here, but the bartender is adorable and does a great job getting her friends there! Elle for president.

Not just for breakfast anymore

Wow, I loved this place when it was just a bakery and now a full service restaurant as well! Went here for dinner and drinks for the first time last week after years of making getting many a yummy muffin/cupcake for breakfast. The dinner was terrific, drinks delicious, service friendly and professional and I can't wait until the warmer weather returns for dinner and drinks on their outdoor patio!""

great new restaurant

so glad the Buttery has recently opened for dinner. It is a great spot for breakfast and lunch and now a great place for dinner also. The food is terrific and the staff is so nice. I loved the fig appetizers, the fish and pork are both also delicious. I'm always looking for excuses to go, and the prices are very reasonable, I love it . It's very handy to go there for dinner before going to events at the BCA wh... view more

How on earth does this place average 4.5 stars?!!! Read the reviews!

Okay, so I finally have to add my 2 cents about the Buttery. I end up going there quite often and half the time I end up hating that I ever gave them my business. My friends feel the same. We've all lived in the South End for about a decade and have seen the South End go through many transformations - this shop being one of them. The service is horrible (beyond horrible) and, if it is even possible, it gets worse... view more

ambiance great, not worth the wait

I thought this place looked really cute, so I stopped in for lunch. What a bad decision. Firstly, they had no Turkey, Chicken or Salmon that day-which doesn't leave much else for a sandwich on the menu. Then, I had to wait sooooo long. I had finished my drink by the time my sandwich was finally done. And the sandwich itself didn't impress me. I had a carrot cake cupcake-which cost $3!! It was the worst carrot ... view more

good place to hang for residents

went by 2 times to grab something hot for the hand and wet for the throat. was tempted to get a bite too but always deterred by the price of these small coffee places (do they all have to charge $6-7 for a half sandwich, or like $3 for a slice of pound cake?).\r \r anyways. coffee was decent but not spectacular (maybe i'm used to starbuck's strength). but one time i got the green tea (or chai?) latte, i totally cho... view more
