With so many chain coffee places around, it's nice to have a REAL fun, funky , hip place to get coffee (etc.) and quick bites. Muddy Waters is very "Burlington" and so most visitors will love it. Atmosphere conjures up poets working on their craft,...More

This place has a great vibe. Could hang out here all morning drinking coffee and reading the paper or talking. Coffee is excellent and the bagels are some of the best I have had.

My wife swore off Starbucks after tasting their latte. The people, the ambiance, oh and yes, the coffee are top notch. If you love coffee, do yourself a favor and check out Muddy Waters!

Place is really cool. The walls are all wooded with plants and it feels like the inside of a cabin. Got a ginger lemon juice that cured my hangover. Amen.

A cozy coffee cave for dismal days. Good place to have coffee, catch up on reading or writing, meet friends.

Had a freshly pressed juice here which was amazing. Coffee, tea, snacks, juices and smoothies accompanied by good music and lots of tables. Great place to chill.

Muddy Waters is located near the Burlington waterfront and is a cool coffee handout. I visited on a Saturday afternoon and found it packed with cool student types. The coffee, however, didn't seem to be the main event - which was the decor and vibes.

My cappuccino was lukewarm so asked to have a second made. The second was not much warmer. C'mon guys, it's a coffee shop and February. Nice atmosphere. Food options very limited. Unlikely to go back.
