August First Bakery & Café
Laptops and tablets are off-limits at this friendly screen-free café — all the better to strike up a conversation over freshly baked pastries, soups, salads and sandwiches.
East West Café
Thailand native Samran Kaewkoet prepares authentic Isan cuisine to go. Try a noodle soup, chicken satay or traditional sticky rice dish.
ArtsRiot (Restaurant)
"Destroy apathy" is the motto and mission of this restaurant, performing arts space and community gathering place. The market-driven menu changes nightly. On summer Fridays, a fleet of food trucks parks out back.
City Market/Onion River Co-op
People of all stripes converge at Burlington's downtown grocery cooperative. Buy some kale, get a sandwich fresh-made at the deli or peruse the hot-bar offerings.
Harvest Market
Salads, sandwiches, entrées and baked goods are made fresh daily. Cheeses, meats, wines, fresh produce and coffee drinks are also on hand.
West Meadow Farm Bakery
Swing by for gluten-free goodies such as maple-oat scones and pumpkin-chocolate-chip muffins. Celebrating something? Call for a decorated cake.
Blue Paddle Bistro
The artsy décor here includes a wooden canoe suspended over the bar. Food is inventive — think coffee-crusted pork tenderloin.
Boyden Valley Winery & Spirits
In 2007, this farm and winery added ice cider to its repertoire. You can also try ice and traditional wines and distilled spirits and liqueurs.
Waterworks Food + Drink
Window seats are in high demand at this former textile mill overlooking the Winooski River. The wood-fired oven turns out flatbreads; pair them with inspired cocktails. Lunch Monday through Friday; Sunday brunch.
The Windjammer Restaurant
An award-winning wine list, aged beef and fresh seafood have attracted diners since 1977. Seeking something more casual? Throw back an Angus burger and a Vermont beer in the upstairs pub.
Barrio Bakery
By day, this neighborhood bakery in the heart of the Old North End turns out breads, pastries, soups and sandwiches. Stop in for an evening pizza Tuesday through Saturday.
Michael's on the Hill
Elegant, ever-changing dishes highlight Vermont ingredients and the chef-owner's European roots.
The Lighthouse Restaurant and Lounge
A trip to the 60-item salad bar comes with every entrée at this steak and seafood restaurant. The tuna tartare is excellent. Sunday brunch.
The Daily Planet
Since 1982, this downtown standby has been a hip place to eat and enjoy local art and music. The menu ranges from sandwiches to pan-roasted lamb.
Joyce's Noodle House
The style of cuisine here traces its roots back to the Shang Dynasty. Try the mustard greens with smoked tofu.
Colchester's Mead Hall
Dry craft meads and boozy honey wines from Groennfell Meadery and Havoc Mead flow through the draft lines. Pair a flight with a Scandinavian sausage, Nordic cheese plate or pickled herring.
Three Brothers Pizza & Grill
This family-owned spot puts an emphasis on local products. Pair a specialty pie — think pulled pork or spicy Thai — with a pitcher of Switchback.
Asiana Noodle Shop
The subterranean spot serves comfort food from across Asia. Create your own soup with choices of broth, noodles and meat, or try dumplings and sushi.
Natural Provisions Deli & Café
The salad bar and hot buffet feature local, organic foods, and the deli meats are all natural. Entrée and soup specials change daily.
Jeff's Maine Seafood
Seafood lovers can order pecan-crusted salmon or crab cakes with a jalapeño-mango tartar sauce. Get prime rib on Friday and Saturday nights.

The chef prepares his native cuisine here: Specialties include freshly baked lavash bread, kebabs, casseroles and apple-maple baklava, served with Turkish coffee or wine.

Reimagined tavern fare meets local ingredients here. Pair your meal with a brew from an extensive draft list, a glass of wine or a specialty cocktail.
Upper Deck Pub
Watch a game on flat-screen TVs over steak, seafood or a burger. The specialty cocktails and microbrews are draws, too.
Tiny Thai Restaurant
Papaya salad, tom kha, ginger chicken and krapow stir-fry take their cues from food carts and family tables. No lunch on Sunday.

Find a friendly Irish pub experience with a full menu, local craft brews and single-malt Scotches. Live music and brunch on weekends.
