MH Bread & Butter is a cafe specializing in crafted breads & local fare. Nourishing the community through honest food.

M.H. Bread and Butter is a cafe and bakery to be launched in San Anselmo, CA in early 2013. We will sell crafted breads made in small batches, preserves and fermented goods, salads, sandwiches, breakfast items and pastries, as well as wood-fired pizzas three days a week. Fantastic coffee, craft beers and wine. Our goal is to help nourish the community through food. We want to source our food from within the community, provide amazing food that is accessible, real and unpretentious and be a place that people can gather, relax, enjoy. We want to do our food, the kind of food we love to eat day in and day out.

We have found our location in Marin county, in beautiful San Anselmo. The next step and what we need your help with is outfitting the space with all the tools we need to make incredible bread and food.

About us:

M.H. Bread and Butter was co-founded by Nathan Yanko and Devon Crosby-Helms. Yanko is a master baker including baking the bread at San Francisco's famed Tartine bakery for the past 8 years. Nathan is obsessed with bread.

Crosby-Helms is an experienced personal chef and gluten free baker, who has successfully run her own personal chef business (Fast Foodie) for several years. She specializes in holistic natural cooking and special dietary needs such a gluten free and vegan diets. 

Nathan and Devon are also competitive ultra distance runners. They have rules about when they can talk about food on a run but still often spend a majority of their trail time plotting what kind of food they will eat after the run.

Your much appreciated contribution will help us:

  • Purchase equipment to carry out our food and dining vision.
  • Have the funds to make our space a place to call home, for not just us but our community. 

How Kickstarter Works:

M.H. Bread and Butter will only receive the funding pledged if we reach our goal of $30,000. If we don't: Nothing, not a dime! The good news is, we are allowed to exceed our goal, which would be amazing and go a long way in making our vision a reality.
