    OK: This adorable Burlington spot is primarily a coffee shop. But once you try the Muddy Shake, made with chocolate gelato and espresso, you’ll never go back to your normal coffee order. Read more

    this is my favorite cafe in all of Btown, the atmosphere is incredible, really unique seating arrangements, coffee is great, they serve beer (good too!), and their baked goods are really tasty

    Nestle into the cabin-like booths with a book or pick a spot by the window to people watch main street. Hazelnut muddy shake is to die for. Who doesn't love espresso and ice cream!?

    Very cool coffee shop with great espresso drinks and freshest pastries. Scones. Try them. Be prepared to wait for a table during peak hours. Aka always :)

    Enjoy the cabin-esque comfort with a coffee and a newspaper by the front window looking out onto Main Street. One of my favorite places to be on a cloudy fall day!

    No wireless, but take it as a gift rather than a hindrance. Go to Muddy Waters, get a hot beverage (or a cold beer) and enjoy the company of a good book for a bit.

    Great coffee, local beers and kombucha on tap, nice people watching from the front windows and delicious snacks.

    I go out of my way to get the bagel with olive cream cheese here--so good! Also one of the best coffee spots

    Wonderful cozy environment and good java. Lack of wireless may improve your productivity, but presence of attractive college girls may diminish it. May want to bring headphones.

    Mate latte is amazing AND The coffee milkshake is to die for. No wireless is a definite drawback though

    The Espresso here is unmatched. Their Mocha is the best in town, and the iced double Americano is simple perfection.

    Pair the Matte, zucchini bread and great music, productivity will ensue. And if not, at least you enjoyed yourself

    Check the cracks in the wall for random notes left on scraps of paper. Always a good source of entertainment

    Coffee, Burlington style. No wifi to keep the worker dorks away. Leave your laptop at home and bring a book instead.
