Buttermilk Bakery – 1198 Orange Avenue Winter Park
The Buttermilk Bakery, a small batch bakery and coffee shop has recently opened on Orange Avenue in Winter Park. Currently operating with breakfast and lunch service, Buttermilk honed their skills by selling bakery products at farmer’s markets and local events and made the jump to the bricks and mortar site at Orange Avenue a couple of months ago.
The restaurant area is small but very clean and bright with a small kitchen and food display at the rear, a few tables are available outside on the patio to the side of the building.
I chose take out today, and ordered a regular Croissant, a Ham & Gruyere Croissant and a delightful Coffee Cake. Adjectives involving bakery goods normally revolve around descriptions such as “Flaky” “Buttery”, “Light & Airy” etc. Well the items I tasted are that and more. Mass produced bakery goods normally try to hide their inferior quality by overpowering the flavors and fillings, but Buttermilk flavors are subtle and delicious allowing the flair and dedication of the baker to stand out. The result is delicious.
I only had time today for a takeout breakfast snack, but I will be back to try lunch, I spotted a great looking Quiche in the display cabinet that I believe had my name on it!
