Ever wish you could go to three brunch places at the same time, instead of choosing just one? That'll be possible starting in June, when the Waterbury Breakfast Club welcomes visitors for Sunday pop-up brunch.
Organizers Georgia and Jeremy Ayers have partnered with Becky and Ben Colley of Petit Noir, which has hosted occasional café pop-ups on the Ayers property, to put together a weekly breakfast/brunch in the courtyard of their home at 18 Elm Street, directly behind Prohibition Pig. The series — a formalized reprise of a handful of test brunches the two couples hosted last summer — will run Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting June 10, Georgia said.
The first week's vendors will include Morrisville's North Country Cakes (formerly pop-up bakery North Country Baking), Burlington's Pioneer Food Truck & Catering, and Stowe Cider. Other vendors, which will rotate through the space all summer, include Miss Weinerz, Haymaker Bun, Green Mountain PotStickers, Farmers & Foragers, Bobbers seafood, Caledonia Spirits, Shacksbury cider, and KIS Kombucha. For kid-friendly fun, the event will supply a Lego tent and clay table.
The Ayerses live on Jeremy's historic family property, which they're converting into a hospitality enterprise marrying guesthouse service (the couple has several Airbnb rentals on-site) with events, the arts and coffee.
For now, though, the goal is to maintain a weekend space in the village that's fun and exciting for locals. "On weekends, Waterbury is really busy with tourists," Georgia said, "but we're trying to create a community green space where you can come down with your kids and just enjoy downtown."
