Sit in a tree house while you drink your coffee

This is one of the most unique places in Burlington. They have a great vibe and the rustic wood interior feels like you are sitting in a tree house. Hand crafted coffee drinks and thick smoothies with fruit and an extensive menu of options. Pastries, bagels and bread also available.

If you are looking for a cozy place to rest your feet in this charming town after a long day of sheer fun, this is the place for you. Excellent coffee. Nice and relaxed settings. Very friendly. Come in and stay for 5 minutes or for 2 hours. Either way you would feel very welcome !

Muddy Waters is such a great spot! The atmosphere is very chill and casual. The coffee and tea and milkshakes are amazing. They also have good desserts and if you're hungry they have bagels and pastries.

I also had some nice pastries there. What I like the most is the place and atmosphere (wood, warm, cozy). No WiFi though, but that's OK. Service is very friendly.

Parking was a challenge on a busy Friday night. The service was very friendly and attentive. The coffee was good, but the barista had a very heavy hand with the flavoring. I really enjoyed the first half of my mocha, but there was so much syrup in it the bottom the rest was undrinkable. We also had a latte with... More

Prior to our Burlington departure - as brief as our visit was - we needed another dose of caffeine to keep our hearts pumping at our preferred rate. On Main Street is another little place that's seemingly as jumping as Uncommon Grounds. Walking into Muddy Waters is like entering a dimly-lit barn-like space. Roughly hewn beams and wooden walls, stained... More

We stopped in Muddy Waters to pick up some coffee. The drinks were very good. My iced latte had a good flavor and was blended just right. The atmosphere in the cafe was unique and perhaps a bit odd. It was also quite dark, so we took our drinks to go. Service was a bit slow, and the barista wasn't... More
