Surprise of the Burlington trip was stumbling upon funky and delicious Zabby and Elf's Stone Soup. (it took me three days to remember the name… We got the 'stone soup' part down pat). Hmmm, the last time I had sprouts on a sandwich was 40 years ago and I heartily welcome them back. Their Vegan club was delicious and my... More

Everything at Stone Soup is first rate. Self serve salad and hot bar is exceptional. You can see the farm fresh ingredients being chopped in the back of the café. Baked goods are excellent. On a cold Vermont day nothings beats the soup and breat at Stone Soup. Comforting and delicious.

The things I love: 1. Beautiful, friendly environment and people. 2. Assortment of hot and cold delicious, healthy food, in buffet style, so it's easy to... More

Stone Soup has a varied menu served deli/buffet style. The offerings are made from scratch and many are vegan. We had the Deepdish Falafel and it was delicious. Made to order sandwiches and soups are also available. Their ingredients are primarily organic and fresh. They also have a great variety of pastries and bread. Very unique place to eat in... More

Today I had the pleasure of eating at Stone Soup. It's eclectic décor was enhanced by the fresh and well prepared food. There was lots of action in the kitchen where people were preparing REAL Food, not some pre-prepared crap like so many other restaurants. Everything we ate was delicious, fresh and well made. Highly recommend this place and I... More

This was a great little stop for vegetarians or vegans. It had way more variety than your typical stop, which often just offer s veggie burger. This restaurant had soups, salads, sandwiches, and desserts. I tried the seitan ruben sandwich and it was really flavorful and something a bit different than what I used all can get, which I enjoyed.... More

Spent a day in Burlington, stopped here for lunch. A charming & funky eatery. We eat mostly vegetarian when out, & they had lots of choices. We both had seitan sandwiches that were sort of like reubens, with cheese & dressing. They were very tasty but we found them quite salty. My husband said the men's room was dirty although... More
