Need simple ideas for Burlington VT?

I'll be visiting with family this weekend and would love some restaurant ideas. I've coined the term "CAFE" to describe what we're looking for; cheap, American, family, easy.

If there's something out there besides Applebee's, I'd love to hear your suggestion. These aren't my food preferences; I just need to accommodate the entire crowd. Thanks!

  1. American Flatbread, I'm thinking.

      Seconded. It's expensive for pizza (15-20 for a large flatbread) but it's also fantastic.

        Second the idea. Great food, GOOD food, local food. The essence of VT dining, especially in the summer!

      2. okay, you asked for it. All of these in the central Burlington area, on or near Church street. Ken's for good pizza and pasta and subs. New moon for just good food. Good salads and soup. And Sorbet. Sadi Katz's for deli food. Stone Soup! Great for hot food and sandwiches. And great dessert. And yes, there is a Ben & Jerry's right there, too.

          Strong second for Sadie Katz. Wonderful brisket and matzoh ball soup.

            Bove's if you feel like Red Sauce Italian. It's on Pearl Street, a block toward the lake from Church St.
