We have always enjoyed Muddy Waters on Burlington from when it first opened

Super vibe. Nice people. Just soak it all up as you chat with friends. Whoever designed this interior space used real, weathered Vermont wood...and made a beautiful space.

Muddy Waters is a great coffeehouse. What I like the most about it is the funky atmosphere - very cozy and different than any other coffeehouses you have ever been too - guaranteed!

Dropped in here, having been referred here by the Onion Café in Church St. (Kudos to the staff in that café for their selfless recommendation). Coffee was made with an attention to detail not often seen. Carrot cake was excellent. Plain bagel also very good! Atmosphere unusual, almost Nashville style. Nice place.

I wished I'd tried it but went for the bagel and cream cheese -- kept it simple. Excellent coffee and a great place to chill.

Muddy Waters is a cool cafe with a unique decor of natural wood. The coffee drinks are excellent as are the snacks. Chocolate chip cookies totally dominate. They also have alcoholic beverages to warm you on cold nights. Warning: no wifi.
