Middleton cafe and bakery closes after 6 months

Tucumã, a Brazilian cafe and bakery that opened last summer in Middleton, has closed, according to a report in the Wisconsin State Journal.

Owner Lorraine Chiapim didn’t respond to calls, texts, or emails from a State Journal reporter and the cafe’s website is no longer active. A notice on the cafe door at 3301 Parmenter St. shows unpaid rent of $2,631.

Tucumã was attached to a Pit Stop convenience store with a BP gas station and next to a Fight Smart Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu studio. Chiapim also owned a catering business that appears to be out of business now as well.
