Food scene

We’re gluten free, vegetarian and have lived in Burlington for over 20 years. During that time we’ve discovered a number of restaurants that can cater to our tastes. Here are some of our favorites!
French bistro ambiance. Has a gluten free menu and vegetarian options. Great drink selection and old world charm. A little more expensive, but worth it. You can find this place half way down Church Street.
