“Best Local Hangout - On the Earthy Side!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2010

This is my favorite place to go for a late night snack or dessert and coffee. Try their Ultimate Lemonade with Kale! Desserts are locally made. You'll see high-schoolers doing homework, college students with laptops, street folk getting more coffee and everyone in between at Muddys. Sometimes there is live music and place is packed. Try the vegan chili.

“A Great Hangout Place for Chilling and Relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2009

I used this place for three years to read and go through life changes while hanging out in Vermont. The workers are cooler than the clients and the coffee and food is excellent. I stopped by there for a bagel and coffee with my wife from Hong Kong and she gave it a good review which is rare for her standard.

It is a great place to escape the Bo Bo's of Burlington and Microsoft crowd of Burlington who pretend to be "Special". Met much cooler folk in there than anywhere else.

“Boho chic cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2009

Great for drinks or a light snack, especially in the evening if you don't want to be in the bars.

“The best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2008

This place is calming and cool. You can sit in a cushy chair with a delish cup of coffee OR try their smoothie - I recommend their pineapple, banana and mango one its the best I have EVER tasted and just relax with a good book, newspaper or just stare out the window.

The decor is perfect and there is absolutely NO stress in this place.

A must for all coffee lovers - this place should sell stock, I would buy some.

“Quirky coffeeshop where...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2008

Quirky coffeeshop where inside is outside. Good place to sit, work, and people-watch.
