The best non-corporate, local place to get coffee in BTV. They roast their own beans on site, sell not only great cups of different lattes and coffee drinks, but also different brewing methods such as French presses. The atmosphere is also perfect for reading & getting school work done.

We had Maple Lattes and Hot Chocolate. Both were excellent. Each time we visit Burlington this is where we go for coffee.

We have one in Saratoga springs as well. It always delivers consistent food, coffee, and service. Nice atmosphere!

Two hot chocolates and a danish pastry on a wet winter's day. There is a warm atmosphere in this large and spacious coffee sho. That said, there is limited seating. A wide selection of hot and cold drinks and some excellent cakes and snacks. Well worth a 30 mins visit to recharge the batteries or to warm up.

Two Mochas, people watching in a cozy atmosphere. Great afternoon spot to sip and watch the world go by.

Great selection of fresh roasted coffee drinks. Good selection of baked goods. Long, patient lines of customers attest to the allegiance of hard core coffee connoisseurs. Free cup of coffee if you buy a pound.

Their maple lattes are out of this world. Absolutely delicious. A must try if you are in the area and love coffee.

Ordered a hot French Roast coffee. Really good quality coffee. Every cup is made to order. Great selection of pastries as well. Definitely go here instead of the other chain coffee houses on the street. You'll be glad you did!

Favorite coffee spot downtown, always busy but also quick. Quality is A+, friendly staff always an interesting group. Just get a mocha and a table and you will be lovin it too! Great to support local, alternative to the chains. Higher quality and better price and keep it local!

We stopped for about an hour in Burlington on our way to Montreal. This was a nice stop for some hot cider as we window-shopped in downtown Burlington.
