“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Disorganised, overpriced, 10 min wait to be served. 15 wait for coffee, 25 min for food, Conflicting wait staff instructions. Overall - a very disappointing experience. Avoid until this place gets itself sorted.

“Excellent new cafe”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

A short walk from the city, Buttermilk Cafe is at one end of what I assume is an old market building that has been converted into a shopping alley. The cafe itself is high-ceilinged and unsentimental, but nonetheless welcoming and it does have a certain atmosphere. Tables are close to each other, but it works. Menu feels more like breakfast/brunch than lunch, but this is evidently the target clientele. Food is good, although arguably over-priced for the portion sizes. Coffees, teas and cake are excellent. Fresh juices seem to be a speciality - and deservedly so. There were plenty of staff on hand when we visited and they generally did a good job. The end effect is a great cafe with good food - although expect to pay accordingly.

“Lovely cafe, great food and ambiance”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Found this place when walking through Victoria Park Market. This place opens early (7am) on weekdays and closes at 3pm. Both times we had their big breakfast - pork fennel sausages were the best sausages I've ever had. Service is friendly and efficient. Definitely worth a visit. Only thing that would make it better would be wifi..
