About this project
We believe surrounding yourself with the people you love while enjoying a homemade meal is what life is all about. Food brings us together, connects us, and is how memories are made. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what you do, how much you make -- we all celebrate, commiserate, and bond over a shared meal or culinary experience.
Located in Saint Paul’s Lowertown, The Buttered Tin is a warm and welcoming corner café and bakery. Weather permitting, guests may dine alfresco on the sidewalk patio or inside in a cozy booth or table. Visitors can gaze into the open kitchen and watch Alicia create and decorate incredible cakes and baked goods.
Our menu is fun and highlights American breakfast classics, it's comforting farm food -- real food that’s simple, fresh, local and delicious! The ingredients have been thoughtfully sourced and the food carefully prepared to become a part of your daily routine, weekly tradition, annual celebrations and once-in-a-lifetime moments.
Your donations will help fund buying kitchen equipment needed to get The Buttered Tin open. We thank you and look forward to welcoming you to the Buttered Tin!

Risks and challenges
Opening a new business, in particular a restaurant, is a huge risk but we love the restaurant and hospitality industry. It's what we do best, it's who we are. We strive to become a part of people's lives one cup of coffee or celebration cake at a time.
We've worked very hard and negotiated well to make sure we position ourselves for success. Once our project is successfully funded on Kickstarter we will have the capital we need to finish up and open our doors to the public.
As we get closer to opening we will fulfill our rewards and host our exclusive donor open house. Donors will tour the space while enjoying a cup of coffee and pick-up their much deserved rewards. We will ask our donors to bring a photo of a shared meal or special celebration (birthday, anniversary,
wedding, graduations, etc) that will be displayed inside The Buttered Tin
for all to see.
We are committed to providing a place for Lowertown and nearby residents a place to gather with family and friends and create lasting memories.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
