Located down Route 30 in the heart of Malvern, PA lies Malvern Buttery – a bakery and café that serves up artisan goods with homemade jams and jellies for breakfast and lunch. It’s a pick-me-up on a cloudy day where the latté art comes at no extra charge. Here’s the lowdown on why the buttery is a place that draws people from all over Chester County:
Known for supporting the local businesses that frequent Malvern Buttery themselves, this spot puts care into what they serve. Their crispy loaves take over 24 hours to get just right – using organic flour (which is reassuring following the E. Coli outbreak) and milled, local grains. Pair a slice with their homemade Spicy Mexican Chicken Soup for a satisfying bite.
Couches, tables, and benches oh my! The set-up here is meant for a truly relaxing break in your day. With fairy lights dangling and tables stacked with books, it has the coffeehouse vibes with a lively atmosphere. Chat with the people sitting across from you as you sip a cappuccino, because this is not a 2-person table kind of place.
Since everything is locally sourced or homemade, the menu is hard to beat. After picking a spot to sit, you grab a board from the array of goods and help yourself to soup & a sandwich, a scone with jam, flourless cake, or all of the above because it’s too picturesque not to.
Farmers markets on the weekends, The Flying Pig Saloon for a craft beer, and Gingy’s Boutique for a new dress makes this town one to envy. Stumbling upon Malvern Buttery and having a fresh out-of-the-oven scone while soaking up some sun in their outdoor seating area gives you an excuse to just take the day off.
The Buttery may be a local favorite, but no matter how far away you are, it’s worth the drive for that first sip of coffee alone.
