The Buttermilk Café is located in the heritage district of downtown Cobourg, Ontario. Our building was built in the mid 1800's and sits directly across the street from the majestic Victoria Hall, a national landmark. Visitors come from all over the world attracted to Cobourg's magnificent harbour, sandy beaches and historic atmosphere. We are proud to say that we have been open since February of 2002.

A trip to Cobourg would not be complete without visiting the Buttermilk Café. Our warm family-oriented service coupled with our unique menu selections makes you feel right at home. The Buttermilk Café offers really good comfort foods made from scratch with loving care using only the highest quality ingredients. You may enjoy your meal in the charming ambience of our spacious dining room or take in the local colour by dining outside on our front patio.

We are committed to serving customers delicious, high quality food that is reasonably priced, all while offering outstanding service. This commitment to quality means serving food that is preservative-free and made from scratch. We make all of our own breads, soups, pancakes, salad dressings and desserts onsite daily. 

We begin serving at 7am every day, offering mouth-watering breakfast selections including our own style of delicious pancakes, cinnamon toast, waffles, and French toast. To compliment breakfast, we serve a great cup of coffee.  

Lunch offers both traditional meals as well as a variety of deliciously unique selections like our house specialty tartines.

Our Dinner Entrées satisfy the most discerning tastes. In short, we serve the best breakfast, lunch and dinner on this part of the planet.

We are a fully wheelchair accessible, non-smoking establishment.
