Butler's Pantry

Y’all Hospitality, founded by restaurateurs Mitch Arens and Stephen Williams, recently announced plans to reopen its first food concept for carry-out amid the COVID-19 pandemic

Initially, Butler’s Pantry — located in Covington’s RiverCenter Towers, just a short walk from the Roebling Suspension Bridge — remained open for carry-out. Then Arens and Williams decided to close-up shop completely.

Now, they have announced plans to reopen Butler’s Pantry beginning Monday, May 4. 

Prior to opening, the cafe underwent a complete rebranding, spearheaded by Arens, Williams and Y’all Hospitality. What was once a grab-and-go cafe with a freezer-to-fryer-to-plate model is now a full espresso bar and bakery offering made-to-order entrees and other quick bites. Williams says Butler’s Pantry aims to “reinvent the office cafeteria.”  

“We’re dedicated to the health of our community, and we’re thrilled to reopen to offer healthy meals and groceries,” Arens says in a press release. “The safety of our guests and staff are our top priority, and we’ve made changes to the layout of our space to ensure their comfort."

Butler’s Pantry has been restructured to put the health and safety first. All meals, bakery items and groceries will be available to pick up and the outdoor walk-up window allows guests to order craft coffee while adhering to social distancing rules. The shop will also serve chef-prepared take-and-bake meals and a special deli menu, plus weekly menu specials.

Butler’s Pantry will be open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit Facebook and Instagram for weekly menu specials and and for more information.
