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.

This place reminds me of the old coffee shops in the 80s, when the coffee shop first started taking off in the U.S. Dark and cozy, no wifi, newspapers and a variety of coffees and teas, including mate. Also tasty sweets.

Muddy Waters is a wonderful place to sit, read a book and enjoy coffee. It has great atmosphere and food. It is where all the locals go!

I went with a friend and we wanted something simple so we got smoothies. They were perfect: texture, taste, amount. They have great options for smoothie bases (almond, soy, yogurt, or regular milk) and fresh ingredients

Muddy Waters is not on Church Street, so is totally local. Relaxed atmosphere with an alternative vibe. People meet there for conversation or to be alone.
