Penny Cluse — The Movie

A Day at Penny Cluse Cafe from Bus Huxley on Vimeo.

Venerable Burlington breakfast spot Penny Cluse is one of those places that seems to breed creativity, or at least attract creative people. The staff seems to be comprised of painters, poets and musicians, the co-owner Holly Cluse curates the ever-rotating art on the walls and more than a few people have been inspired to shoot movies at the convivial cafe. So it makes sense that one of its own turned his camera lens on the restaurant itself.

Longtime employee Gardner Waldeier set up his camera to capture a "timelapse/stopmotion visual summary" of Penny Cluse. He turned the footage into a 12-minute opus of chopping, frying, flipping and butchering. If you've ever been curious about what happens in a kitchen (or how much damn food we eat), this is worth checking out. It's also a sweet tribute to the people Waldeier has worked with (he recently left the restaurant and made the video as his going-away gift to the Penny Cluse family) and a nifty interpretation of how one of the city's most bustling restaurants gets it all done.
