Stop by in the morning, anytime after 7:30 a.m., for a quick breakfast pastry, breakfast sandwich, cereal and a drink (fresh brewed coffee or juice).
Drop by for lunch (11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.) and enjoy a freshly made sandwich or a hometown meal. Our menu offers items that are perfect for a meal on the run, or enjoy with colleagues in our cozy dining room. Click on our menu to see our full offerings and prices.
We can provide breakfast or lunch for meetings. You may either pick up your order or arrange for Meeting Services to deliver to any WHOI location. For a printable menu, click on the "Take-Out Catering Menu" file at right. Please place your order in the Resource Scheduler, or through the Meeting Services Coordinator, as you would if ordering from any of our local food providers. Please give as much notice as possible, and at least two days. Being a small operation, we have a limited food inventory and may not be able to fulfill short notice requests.
In a time crunch? Want to avoid the noon Buttery rush? Feel free to phone the Buttery to place your order ahead of time. Call x2477 before 11:30 and your lunch special, sandwich, or grilled item will be ready when you arrive at noon.
If you plan to eat in or take out, the Buttery is the place to meet and greet. Stop by and enjoy the hospitality and the soft music!
The Buttery has gone ECO-Friendly!
The folks at the Buttery have ECO-Friendly eating utensils and food containers. The spoons, forks, and knives are made of vegetable starch material instead of plastic. These items are biodegradable and will completely break down in a normal compost after 75 days. The food containers are made of natural fiber consisting of sugar cane, grass, and reed plasma, and are also biodegradable. The Buttery is doing its part to help our environment.
