South End Buttery is a hip spot in the South End neighborhood of Boston. The Buttery is a restaurant, cafe and a market! On my visit to the Buttery, I had brunch at the restaurant and browsed the café and market. The café has delicious and unique baked goods. There are breakfast and lunch sandwiches, pastries, cupcakes, cookies and more. The market has awesome already made dishes such as chicken salad, rice, wild mushroom ravioli, salads, grilled chicken breasts, whole pies and cakes. It’s a great option for a night you don’t want to cook! The menus at the Buttery changes by the seasons; the foods are made from local ingredients. Since this is a delayed post some of items I tried may not be available anymore but I still felt I must share!
South End Buttery Cafe:
My Picks for the Day:
Choco Berry Oatmeal Cookie: Very fresh with a nice balance of oatmeal, dark chocolate and cranberries. Baked perfectly with the right amount of chewy to crisp texture.
Sweet Potato Blondie: Yup, you read that correctly, a blondie made with sweet potatoes. The first thing that comes to mind with each bite is “mmmmmm”! The blondie was so soft and creamy. The center was smooth; the top and bottom layer was light and crisp. It was very tasty and different; I can honestly say I have never tried anything like it before. It had a great sweet potato taste without being overwhelming. The blondie had some nuts inside which added to the texture. Plain vanilla ice cream would be a great complement.
Bully Boy Whiskey Pecan Pie: Bully Boy is a local Boston distillery that produces small batches of rum, whiskey and vodkas. I had gone on a tour of the Bully Boy distillery several months prior to my trip to South End Buttery so I was excited to try this pecan pie. I really enjoyed this pie! There was a good amount of pecans and a nice punch of whiskey. The pie was not too sweet like how some pecan pies can be.
On this trip my favorite was the Sweet Potato Blondie but the Bully Boy Whiskey Pecan Pie is a close second. Do yourself a favor and check out South End Buttery for some unique, fresh, delicious smelling food and dessert!
