Eats and Sweets

Thoughtfully Sourced & Lovingly Prepared


The Buttered Tin is a warm and welcoming corner café and bakery.

Our menu highlights American breakfast classics. It’s comforting farm food — real food that’s simple, fresh, local, and delicious! The ingredients have been thoughtfully sourced and the food lovingly prepared.

Our cafe is perfect for daily coffee, brunch with friends, and breakfast meetings. Dine in our buttery-yellow buttoned booths or alfresco on the sidewalk patio (weather permitting).

We specialize in life's sublime celebrations: birthdays to weddings to just because. Our custom desserts are unique and designed to make your event the sweetest.
