Re: “ABC Café & Pub

We stopped there the other day for the first time since its old days as Bananas, and we were favorably impressed. Bucking the trend of almost all eateries in Chittenden County, ABC has kept its prices affordable, and the food and drinks are good. I got a great sandwich and a terrific Martini for a total of just over $10. The service was prompt and friendly, and we found ourselves chatting with other customers--it's that kind of place.

I'm getting tired of all the new restaurants with $10 burgers, $12 drinks, "small plates" with two beans and a smear of risotto for $5.98, and waitstaff who act like they are doing us a big favor by allowing us to spend our money. Chittenden County used to have quite a few restaurants with real food at affordable prices with a friendly atmosphere--that has become so rare that ABC now really stands out. I'm told there is live music--Blues Jams (!)--some nights, and look forward to checking that out

Re: “Pho Nguyen

Great food and significant improvements in the environment from the previous establishment, including a pool table, comfortable seating and a full bar.

Re: “Maggie O's

Maggie's has a great DIY yogurt set-up -- you choose your yogurt flavors (as many as you want), then add whatever toppings you want! You pay by the ounce, so you can get as little or as much as you want. Plus, Maggie herself is super-friendly.

Re: “Sparkling Champagne & Wine Bar

Not only did we get a delicious bottle of bubbly, but we learned so much from Nancy the proprietress about sparkling wines. Lovely historic house setting, elegant and laid-back at the same time: to sum up, a great experience!

Re: “Absolute Wellness Healing Spa

This is the most beautiful spa I've been to. I've been to all of them in the Burlington area, thanks to my hubby giving me gift certificates. As soon as I walked in this spa, they had me at 'Hello.' The soothing sounds, natural lighting and spacious lounge was so inviting, I felt right at home, like I had entered a peaceful sanctuary. The aura from the staff is even warm and calming and their attentive customer service is always welcoming. Try out the sonic vibration and the anti-gravity before your massage. It helps my muscles relax and loosen up before my services even start. The therapists are mind blowing. Period. I've had Donnie, Sarah and Nancy so far for hot stone, deep muscle massage, body scrubs and wraps. They're all fantastic. So amazing, I recommend this place to everyone I know. And I'm getting my parents to go here for their aching backs/painful muscles for a couples massage. They also offer amazing facials - my skin glows for weeks afterwards. And the Brazilian wax services with Jackie is absolutely the best in town. Her waxing is quick and painless - and very thorough. I've never had to do any at-home post wax grooming with Brazilians done with her. Their affordable spa membership and waxing packages make this little habit possible for me continue monthly.
