Espresso, muffins, sweet and savory croissants and rolls, cakes, tarts, big light-filled windows, whimsical local artwork on the walls, and a constant soundtrack of bluegrass and Americana music in the background — Barrio is a huge local favorite among the bakeries and coffee shops in town.
Though it’s located off the beaten path, it’s worth the short walk from the center of Burlington — these croissants might be the best in town. Though they have wifi and are very amenable to college students and business folk needing a place to hammer out some work, they always have a steady stream of locals coming by for some conversation and light reading, giving the atmosphere a good mix. On Wednesday through Saturday nights, they host Pizza Barrio, a pizza night whose menu changes weekly and always offers fresh, local ingredients on top of a thick doughy crust.
From the Author: The space is tight, which means you usually end up chatting for a few minutes with one or two of the other customers sitting around you. The people who frequent Barrio are overwhelmingly friendly. Go for the ham and cheese savory croissants, the lavender muffins, or the orange hazelnut rolls!
