New Plant-Based Caribbean Cafe Now Open in Brooklyn
Experience a taste of the Caribbean in Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood!
This past September, husband and wife team Michael and Nicole Nicholas made their vision a reality when they opened Aunts et Uncles, a plant-based cafe and lifestyle concept spot. The couple both come from large families, where their aunts and uncles have played a positive role in their lives. Now that they too have nieces and nephews, Michael and Nicole wanted to create a space for both their own family and the community to enjoy quality food and feel at home every time they walk in.
The menu features American-style bites as well as flavors of the Caribbean, such as the Au Burger (Beyond Meat patty, caramelized onions, spicy mayo, BBQ sauce, and arugula on a pretzel bun) and Mofongo (mashed green plantains on a bed of mixed greens and topped with salsa). Each dish can be accompanied by beer, wine, or cocktails, like the Mikey Spice (mezcal, blood orange, Serrano), and Grass Roots (gin, ginger cucumber, prosecco). Diners can also browse the lifestyle shop, which features everything from t-shirts to books on self-love and nutrition.
“The cafe is a combination of both Mike’s and [my] interests. With me coming from the restaurant/hospitality world and [he] design, we decided to combine both of our interests under one roof, turning the café into an experience. We have books, magazines, and the A.U. brand as well as offerings from our clothing brand DIEM (Does It Even Matter), candles, [and more]. The plant-based bites were intended to be an ‘Oh wow. They have food too!?’ but the food has gratefully become super popular. And we are happy to see that everyone is enjoying [it],” Nicole told VegOut.
Aunts et Uncles is located at 1407 Nostrand Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11226 and is currently open for delivery.
