Cafe Mangia Italian Restaurant

Everyone loves the idea of a lazy Sunday brunch at a favorite local restaurant. Ever wonder where this meal came from? Every Sunday people all over the world enjoy a midday meal with their families at their favorite restaurants. Perhaps they are celebrating a special occasion such as Mother’s Day or a Birthday of a friend. In many cases, patrons simply want to enjoy a lazy Sunday morning enjoying a mimosa and wide variety of culinary traditions. Who says you need a special occasion to enjoy a smorgasbord of goodies? When did people start subjecting themselves to Sunday’s little slice of heaven? Some historians think that brunch has its roots in Catholic tradition where Catholics would fast before mass then sit down to a large midday meal. While others believe it is an English tradition to have a lavish spread after a hunt. Where ever the actual origin of Brunch came from it started to catch fire in the United States in the 1930’s supposedly because of Hollywood stars making transcontinental train trips stopping off to enjoy a late morning meal. Eventually it was nurtured by Hotels; when for a time many restaurants were closed on Sundays. Restaurants soon hopped onto the bandwagon and began offering decadent spreads of delicious cuisines and signature mid -morning cocktails. These days a Brunch is a simple way to relax, eat well and socialize with good company. Cafe Mangia is pleasant drive from to Hebron, Marlborough, Glastonbury, Norwich, Lyme and Columbia. Join us for a fabulous Sunday Brunch inspired by the Italian culture of warmth and hospitality.

Cafe Mangia is open for Sunday Brunch from 10 am – 3 pm. Call Café Mangia today to make your next brunch reservation. 860-537-7707.

Spaghetti and Meatball    I ate there for the first time on Saturday evening. The food and wine were delicious. I got the spaghetti and meatball. The sauce was absolutely the best I’ve ever had in a restaurant (I’m fussy on my sauce) and the meatball was huge and also one of the best I’ve had. The waitress was very nice and efficient. The 3 of us all had different desserts which were also wonderful. Will definitely go back again! – Joanne M. – April 15, 2018

Heather was exceptional     My friend and I stopped in for lunch. It was an absolutely delicious lunch. Penne with vodka sauce (with diced prosciutto) and a side of meatball.
My lunch companion Mary had pasta with pesto sauce with grilled chicken. Followed by coffee and a latte and their cannolis. Food was spectacular. Our server Heather was exceptional. We have another appointment in the area later in the month. Can’t wait to go again to try something else on their menu. We’ve already requested Heather. – Lori F, February 13, 2018

Gem    I can’t believe its taken me this long to discover this gem! I had the pasta special with penne pasta, ham and peas in a creamy sauce that was heavenly! Heather then tempted me to have the chocolate chip cannoli for dessert! The food and service were both exceptional. Thank you for a terrific lunch.– Suzanne N, April 17, 2018
