“Located in the heart of Burlington!”

Penny Cluse is located on the corner of Cherry and South Winooski in the heart of downtown Burlington. The clientele is about as diverse as it gets. Students, professionals, families, artists, politicians, tourists all vie for a table in the busy restaurant. Ask any regular and they’ll complain that there’s been a wait every Saturday and Sunday since the day Penny Cluse opened!The Penny Cluse menu covers a lot of territory, not reflecting a particular region or style, but a compilation that satisfies a broad range of tastes. The breakfast side of the menu is a continuation of menus that Charles worked on in San Francisco. Customers have admitted to dreaming about everything from gingerbread pancakes to huevos rancheros. The tofu scram and omelettes are the biggest sellers with hundreds of ingredient combinations to choose from. While the breakfast side of the menu has largely stayed the same over the years, lunch has changed and shifted to accommodate the tastes of our customers and the interests of our cooks. The ever-talented Penny Cluse team also creates a multitude of baked goodies, soups, and daily specials.The Penny Cluse Café has also become a high quality caterer, creating original menus and mixing creative cocktails for evening private parties. The restaurant easily converts into an intimate space to celebrate a birthday, holiday, rehearsal dinner or company party.

The best breakfast and brunch. A personal favorite. So sad that they're closing but retirement is well deserved! Read more
