Featured Boston Restaurant: Bread + Butter






Featured Boston Restaurant: Bread + Butter

Bread + Butter Bakery



It seems like restaurants that are located in Boston’s North End neighborhood end up trying quite hard to fit in. Lately, though, there have been a variety of restaurants within the North End that are bringing their own personal flavor to the old Boston Italian neighborhood.


One of the leaders of that pack is Bread + Butter, a not-so-typical bakery that opened right on the Cross Street portion of Boston’s North End in early 2013 that serves way more than just bakery items. Bread + Butter cordially greets residents and visitors of Boston’s North End immediately as they step foot at the tip of famed Hanover Street on the other side of the road from the North End park.


Whether customers are looking to jumpstart their day with a coffee and a pastry, level out at lunchtime with a healthy salad, indulge in a savory sandwich for dinner, or even order a catering order for the entire ofice, Bread + Butter’s menu can satisfy your cravings at any time of day.


Bread + Butter, catering


To start, Bread + Butter has five very different, very delicious salads, including the Spinach Salad (topped with Quinoa, radishes, mushrooms, and Tuscan white beans), the Mediterranean Greek Salad (topped with romaine lettuce, feta cheese, chickpeas, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions and olives), the traditional Caesar Salad, and the Simple Mixed Greens Salad (if you’re a protein-monster, try it with chicken!), but our favorite salad from Bread + Butter has to be the Kale + Farro Salad.


The taste of the Kale, roasted cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes and the mustard-lemon vinaigrette dressing that tops the Kale + Farro Salad is (almost) worth dying for. It’s a delicious, healthy salad that, traditionally, probably isn’t meant to be served alongside all the tasty sweets that Bread + Butter bakes fresh daily, but we’re certainly not complaining by any means. If you’re going to indulge in sweets, you might as well try to be somewhat healthy at the same time.


If salads aren’t exactly your thing and you’re more of a sandwich guy or gal, Bread + Butter will do you well. Of the many sandwiches that Bread + Butter serves, though, we’re going to reserve our praise for three: the BBQ Pulled Pork sandwich, the Roasted Portabella + Grilled Eggplant Sandwich and the Brie + Grilled Pear Sandwich.


The BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich is self-explanatory for any pulled pork lovers, as it’s topped with Napa slaw and onion strings. It’ll satisfy the cravings and the taste buds of any true southerner with a real taste for BBQ. If you’re a vegetarian, though, or if you’re into vegetarian sandwiches, the Roasted Portabella + Grilled Eggplant Sandwich and the Brie + Grilled Pear Sandwich are the ones you’ve got to try. Both are innovative, fresh, and refreshing – not your average deli meat + cheese + topping sandwich.


Ah, lastly: Bread + Butter’s baked goods. Whether you want to indulge in Brownies, Macaroons (of the coconut or French meringue style), Muffins, Cookies or hand-dipped Éclairs, Bread + Butter’s got you covered. Their croissants are so good that you can’t eat just one, too, with flavors ranging from Chocolate to Almond to Ham + Cheese (pictured below) to Apple + Cheddar. (Seriously, try an Apple + Cheddar Croissant.)

Believe it or not, of all places in Boston’s North End, Bread + Butter is probably one of the easiest to get to from the highway and to park for free at, considering there is short-term parking right out front and the fact that Cross Street is directly off of I-93N. Of course, us folks at DiningIn would be more than happy to deliver you the delicious sweet and savory treats from Bread + Butter, but now you know an easy place to stop you’re heading north through Boston and are hungry for something delicious!


Otherwise, schedule your order through DiningIn today, and savor the flavor of Bread + Butter’s delectable creations in the comfort of your own home!
