About
Buttermilk Cafe

Buttermilk Café opened in November 2012 after 12 months of design work in the revamped Victoria Park Market site, which has been on this land since 1905.

The Café is part of the local community and offers a great modern warehouse space to sit and savor a great espresso or try some of the great menu items or a fabulous grilled sandwich.

The kitchen produces all the menu items on site and the focus is to make it fresh and seasonal.

We are open 7 days a week and we only close on Xmas Day and Boxing Day

Monday to Friday 7am until 3pm, Saturday and Sunday 8am until 3pm

Kitchen Closes at 2.30 each day

We offer no surcharge on public holidays

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...More

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..

The New Zealand Herald

Buttermilk Cafe is now open. New modern cafe serving fresh seasonal food in the newly revamped Victoria Park Market. Owner-chef Warwick Brown has an enviable reputation as a skilled purveyor of delicious café fare. Great food, and espresso by Ozone.

"I had a delicious ‘Veggie Pide’ from this new cafe today. Having it toasted was a good choice, as it made the contents luciously moist: eggplant, roasted peppers, feta, rocket, caremilzed red onion, mayo & hummus. An excellent soy flat white, followed by a tasty ginger slice kept me very happy. I like the high ceilings and big windows, giving it a lightness. It’s a stylishly kitted out venue. Plenty of different spaces to sit at and read the Herald. Staff were very smiley and efficient too."

The massive $20 million redevelopment of Victoria Park Market is all but complete. This historic site dates back to 1905 and now, restored to its former glory, has a great mix of retail, bars, restaurants and cafes housed within the beautiful brick complex. One of the first to set up shop was culinary stalwart, chef Warwick Brown, with his much anticipated breakfast and lunch eatery, ButtermilkCafe.

Brown is an icon of our hospitality sector, having owned and been involved with restaurants since the 70s when he set up the bustling Oblio's on Ponsonby Rd, followed by LeGourmet, before getting on board with other greats such as Cin Cin and Mikano. More recently he was the masterful headchef behind the innovative La Cigale French Market bistro evenings, where he served up delicious French classics like coq auvin, and beef bourguignon.

Now he has turned his attention to a daytime cafe menu that reflects his talent for doing it differently and doing it better. Try the smoked fish kedgeree, it's a plateful of unbelievably light and fluffy spiced basmati rice, crammed full of soft flakes of smoked fish. Or the coddled eggs with pancetta, shallots, haricot beans and gruyere, all baked in a pan Very pleasing indeed. There are pressed juices (the pear, ginger and watermelon juice is our favourite) and Ozone coffee to quench the thirst All we want to know is, when is he going to extend his hours to include an evening dinner service?
