Perk Up: The Three Best Coffee Shops near Burlington VT

1700 × 658​Coffee is a truly magical thing. First cultivated in Ethiopia around the 11th century, this favorite beverage was enjoyed as a medicinal pick-me-up. By the 15th century, it had spread to the Arabian Peninsula, and you could find coffee shops where locals sipped and socialized. This, of course, is still practiced in modern society, where bistros scattered around a city bring people together over what might be hailed as the greatest drink of all time.

To elevate not only your cup of joe but also your coffee-drinking experience as a whole, we present the best coffee shops near Burlington. Here, you’ll no doubt find great coffee–but it might be the atmosphere that has you coming back for seconds.
