Crêperie

“Located on the waterfront in downtown Burlington, the Skinny Pancake is a cult favorite among Vermonters. This creperie will woo you any time of day with its delectable breakfast, savory and dessert options, as well as salads, burgers, and sides. They even offer gluten free and vegan options and often have live music in the evenings. No reservations needed, but be prepared to wait in a bit of a line during weekend evenings and peak hours.”

Holidays feature fun molded chocolates for place settings and gifts.”
