The service was warm and attentive, the food was perfectly prepared and delicious, the tables were not close together, all things that make for a delightful evening. If we ever get back to that part of Vermont we will return to that restaurant for sure.

We found Rustic Roots on Trip Advisor when we realised we couldn't eat sunday brunch at the nearby Inn at Shelburne Farms as we hadn't made a reservation. I'm very pleased that we made that mistake as Rustic Roots provided the best breakfast of our entire holiday. There was about an hour's wait when we arrived, so we had a... More

If you are going to visit Shelburne Vt, then stop in at rustic roots for breakfast or lunch. They describe themselves as a craft eatery which I think is an accurate description. The offerings are unique and delicious. The popovers with herb butter are a must. My kids loved the baked carmel apple pancake. This is a small location and... More

I've been to this restaurant for breakfast and was looking forward to having dinner. My date and I had roasted pork, baked apples, roasted root vegetables and purée of sweet potato. Excellent service and delicious food.

Delicious and quaint breakfast place in Vermont. I Recommend it and will return! We did wait for over an hour but they will call when table becomes ready so you can do other things.

My daughter and I had a great meal at Rustic Roots! It is a cozy house right on Falls Road with great food and a friendly atmosphere! We had Salmon Waldorf salad and Wild Mushroom Risotto - YUM!

I have enjoyed a fabulous brunch at Rustic Roots. Service was excellent! It is a tiny and cozy restaurant in Shelburne Village. The food is fresh and delicious. The seared Ahi Tuna Salad is fantastic and so are the Eggs Benedict. The Honeyed Goat Cheese and Walnut Crepe is amazing! Reservations are recommended!

I was traveling with a friend in Vermont and our first stop after picking up a rental car at the Burlington airport was the little restaurant with a menu that so creative and that excites your tastebuds. The menu changes with the seasons but definitely try the Seasonal Soup. An amazing butternut squash bisque was my choice with a Roasted... More

We were just leaving our tour group to do a road trip with other friends, and found this gem. It was rainy, and this place was warm, cozy, with a fun welcoming staff. We had to wait (5-10 min only) for a table, as there were 4 of us and it's a small place, but the waitress got us a... More

Delicious. Everything was fresh and perfect. A meal for taking photos, but we didn't. Popovers were so yummy. Sausage fresh and crisped to perfection. Homefries were perfectly crispy and tender and hot. Service prompt and lovely. Eggs...yum. Soup...perfect.
