Duino Duende a restaurant with locally sourced, creative food based on street food from around the world- 3. Light Club Lamp Shop -Great live music spot with full bar- these three places are all connected to each other so you don't even have to go outside to move from one to the next- Vegan and meat eater alike will be happy with their offerings- A local hipster hangout.

“Sneakers is a bustling joint for breakfast! A must visit—bring the kids—if you do, get there early—the waits for a seat can be intolerable on the weekends. The eggs Benedict is amazing (California style is my fave)—corned beef hash is great—as well as the bloody Mary’s!”

Crêperie
$$
“Located on the waterfront in downtown Burlington, the Skinny Pancake is a cult favorite among Vermonters. This creperie will woo you any time of day with its delectable breakfast, savory and dessert options, as well as salads, burgers, and sides. They even offer gluten free and vegan options and often have live music in the evenings. No reservations needed, but be prepared to wait in a bit of a line during weekend evenings and peak hours.”
