We really like the coffee here and the pastries were good along with the bagels. The caps are done ever so well. It is faster than the major chains. We never went in there when they were not busy. Great morning's stop on our Burlington Journey. Located right in the heart of Church Street Marketplace downtown Burlington.

I dig the vibe of the place, the coffee and teas options are amazing and the bakery goods will tempt even the most diet conscious.

Tried this place out multiple times thinking that I was just ordering bad drinks but it turns out that this place is just horrible. All non-dairy latte's taste disgusting and their vegan baked goods taste like aluminum foil melted into it. Go to New Moon Cafe instead

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.
