Café Mamajuana Brings Tropical Flavors to Burlington’s Brunch Scene

What makes brunch brunch? For me, it's the drinks. Without booze, a midmorning meal is just breakfast. And the more beverages, the better. When I sat down for brunch last month at Café Mamajuana, I had six lined up: coffee, water and a tropical mimosa flight of four juices — soursop, guava, papaya and passion fruit — mixed with Prosecco. It was the height of luxury and an opportunity to sip on flavors that are hard to find in Vermont.

BREAKING NEW GROUND

For fresh-baked rolls ready for honey cinnamon butter hot from the oven every five minutes, steaks chilled to 34 degrees (never frozen) cut by hand on the premises, made-from-scratch sides, salad dressings, and croutons — even the bacon bits are made fresh – ice cold beer, Legendary Margaritas and the crowd favorite — the Big Ol’ Brownie (also made in house from scratch) you need to check out Texas Roadhouse.
