Delicious!

Happy times for vegetarian or omnivore like me. Tasty variety of dishes to choose from, hot and cold tables. Quinoa Mac n cheese was surprisingly similar in flavor if not texture, to real Mac and cheese. Moroccan veg very nicely spiced. Cakes look very good and quiche is a very substantial portion... read more

Creative desserts with vegan options. Buffet hot bar with vegan staples like rice, beans, root vegetables, kale, plus salad, curries, and other mains. Great soups, breads, and sandwiches (recommend hummus sandwich!). Reasonable prices.

I feel like this is Burlington's best place to be. The vibe is welcoming and serene. The food is nourishing and accessible. When I go here I don't want to leave. Anyone who visits me from out of town knows this will be a stop on our Burlington trip.

A must go destination for food and treats while in Burlington. We enjoyed it so much we went twice over a 4 day trip. The options for wonderful fresh and healthy food is right in front of you. You must save room for a tasty treat like a slice of cake that is so fresh it is still warm....mmmmmm...

Great vibe inside...we sat a common table with another couple. Tastey daily specials that include both entrees as well as soups & sandwiches. Loved the use of organic and locally sourced items...don't leave without getting one of their baked products to have with a coffee on a stroll down Church St.

Riding the car ferry over from Essex, NY wondering where to have lunch in Burlington. The tripadvisor review sent me to Stone Soup. What warm, charming, comfortable place for lunch. Friendly staff and tasty lunch!

You order sandwiches and soups from the counter, but there is a help yourself salad bar and hot food bar that you pay for by weight. Several homemade desserts on cake stands to choose from for dessert. Soup was very good, but sandwiches and hot foods just average. Small selection of bottled beer and wine. You get your own water,... More

Abandon the factory food at your favorite chain restaurant and experience some real food crafted in delicious ways. I wish we had this restaurant close to where we live! It's a casual sort of place where you order at the counter, but the food is the focus here. I had the Sweet Potato Corn Chowder Quiche - very tasty! My... More

visited here while passing thru Burlington. - Healthy and different from the regular daily choices. - Hot and fresh options (Stews, casseroles, salads, Deserts). - this place needs a bigger space to accomodate all the patrons!!! - IF YOU DONT VISIT THIS GEM, YOU WILL MISS A SPECIAL THING.
