A popular neighborhood restaurant and cafe, the South End Buttery expanded into a neighboring space on Shawmut Avenue to grow its bakery operations and provide a retail market, focused on take-out food and gourmet products. Distinct from its adjacent space, the market offers a fresh take on design elements from the original Buttery, such as a painted tin ceiling and carrara marble counter tops. Light wood floors, dark millwork, modern lighting and glass display cases create a distinct backdrop for the shop’s tempting prepared food and retail items.
A simple cash register with a blend of light marble and dark wood accentuates an attractive shop display item.
The shop’s exterior is in a classic shophouse style with exposed red bricks and wooden frames painted in contrasting black colors. The stylish doors are very classic and the windows are full-width glass allowing walkers and shoppers to see the inside of the shop freely.
