Swung by the Buttered Tin to do some work with coworkers over lunch time, and it was an adorable location with fast service. Great selection of hot teas, delicious avocado toast, and a scrumptious assortment of bakery items. Highly recommend stopping by!

A bit pricey. Food is ordered at a counter, like a cafeteria. Food is brought to your table. Crab cake Benedict was very good, yet it seemed odd to me to pair it with a salad. My wife had a salad with chicken that was...More
