Mellody Farm Opens Doors to Highly Anticipated Buttermilk Café

Buttermilk Café, a restaurant and coffee bar with a passion for elevating traditional breakfast fare, recently opened the doors to its third and final location at Regency’s Mellody Farm. Conceptualized in 2014, the urban barn-style eatery is equally known for its signature buttermilk biscuits and creative beverage program, which showcases everything from classic espresso-inspired drinks to craft alcoholic beverages and boozy milkshakes galore.

Offering curbside takeout options and with an expansive tent in the parking lot promoting socially-distant seating, Buttermilk is continuing to closely follow strict safety guidelines. The well-being of the Mellody Farm community — and the Vernon Hills community at-large — will always be the restaurant's top priority.

The cafe brings homemade flavor and an urban feel to the Mellody Farm community, and we couldn’t be happier.
