Aunts et Uncles – Retail and Vegan Cafe | Lifestyle Concept Shop + Vegan Cafe.
Welcome to Aunts et Uncles!
We are Michael and Nicole Nicholas. Known to many as Aunty Nic and Uncle Mike.
Since being married 9yrs ago sharing space, food, knowledge, and resources have been super important to us. It’s what connected us. Both coming from huge Caribbean families we were given the gift of planting seeds within our Community. Whether it be through social events, pop-up experiences or home gatherings we combine our diverse backgrounds to create a hospitality experience that is supportive and visionary.
We found ourselves at a place in our lives where we wanted to combine all of our passions, experiences, and knowledge under one roof. With our lifestyle concept shop Aunts & Uncles which will be both retail and food & beverage, we are able to build out those experiences creating a comprehensive hospitality experience.
Aunts & Uncles will be located in Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood, home to the borough’s largest West Indian population. Also known as “Central Brooklyn,” this hub of movers and shakers has maintained its cultural vibrance with Caribbean bakeries, regular local parties, and seasonal festivals. However, it’s also strewn with limited food options and zero vibe spots that can allow for both inspiration AND clean eating. Overall, Flatbush’s export of talent needs to be met with a space that builds this population up, while helping to push the neighborhood’s narrative into a new chapter.
Our goal is to raise $60 thousand dollars to help complete the build-out. This money will also enable us to stick to the vision we have and present you with the most complete version of the narrative we’ve described. Thank you for believing in us, for supporting us, and for helping to open this business. Your investment means community members being able to have an establishment within their own neighborhood, and that you believe in the future of this dope, vibrant, inspiring and diverse community of doers and dreamers.
We appreciate your contribution of any size. Support us in any way you can. Thank you!
– Aunty Nic & Uncle Mike
