Bread & Butterfly, the forthcoming "all-day European cafe" from Cakes & Ale owners Billy and Kristin Allin, opens its doors at 3 p.m. this Friday, PR confirms to Eater Atlanta. The new restaurant will begin with a soft opening period while it awaits a liquor license, which is expected to come through by early January at the latest.
Cakes & Ale chef de cuisine Bryan Stoffelen is in as executive chef, and David Garcia and Abigail Quinn, who run the small restaurant group's bakery, Proof Bakeshop, are in charge of breads, pastries, and dessert. Cakes & Ale sommelier and beverage director Jordan Smelt is cultivating the drink list, which includes wine, beer, classic cocktails, and digestifs. Bread & Butterfly will offer full breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner service with a daytime coffee and pastry counter that transforms into a cocktail and wine bar at night.
Kristin Allin collaborated with Square Feet Studio on the design, taking inspiration from Parisian cafes with a copper ceiling, painted and natural woods, marble, and patterned tiles throughout the space. In addition to the main dining room and five-seat bar, the restaurant includes a patio for al fresco dining.
Located at 290 Elizabeth Street, Bread & Butterfly's regular hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., and brunch service runs on Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
