— our story —
The Buttery is a different kind of community cafe.
Think of it as a home away from home or a friend’s place where you are always welcome to pop in and they’re always cooking up something delicious. Where you can go and relax and take a quick break from the day. That’s a good friend.
Part village bakery, part coffee shop, and part scratch kitchen, the Malvern Buttery is a place to get a great espresso beverage, indulge in house-made pastries (think warm croissants and delicious sourdough breads), and grab a delicious meal. More importantly though, it’s a warm and inviting place to gather and be with friends.
We care deeply about our work and the craftsmanship that goes into it, be it baking bread, brewing coffee, cooking food, and caring for others. We source our fruits and veggies carefully from local farms and support local food producers by using organic, pastured and humanely-raised meats and dairy.
This is all an experiment of sorts. We aren’t following a formula. We aren’t trying to compete with other coffee shops. We’re hoping to provide our community with a welcoming space to gather over a cup of coffee, tea and great food.
The Buttery exists because we saw a need for that third place, away from home and work, where we could all reconnect to ourselves, our food, and each other.
Welcome to The Buttery,
John & Silenia

We trust you. Come on in, order a drink with a barista, find a seat and make yourself at home. All of our food is made fresh daily and set out on our serving table, for you to feast with your eyes and your bellies. Help yourself to whatever suits your fancy.
