Our hours of operation are changing. Now open 5 pm-9 pm Wednesday and Thursday and 4:30 pm-9 pm Friday and Saturday!

We are now offering limited dining in our restaurant!
It is highly recommended to call and make a reservation, as each shift’s table and seating availability will be determined by the amount of staff we have that night.   We hope you will be patient with us and that you strike us on the right night!  Generally, we will have enough staffing for reservations at our bar and often times at least one other section in the restaurant.  Whenever possible, we will add a second section and increase from there as both staffing and Covid numbers improve.  Because of the unavoidable inconsistency at this time, we are not allowing online reservations, so call early to get your spot!

You may use our pavilion or tables out front for your takeout order, however, we will not be providing service in these areas.  Please call the restaurant and ask for Joe if you would like us to set up the heater on the pavilion for your group, as we prefer to conserve the energy if we don’t have any people planning to dine outside.


  We will make updates on as many platforms as we can think of as we begin to open up again.

Takeout Guidelines

 We are working hard to ensure a safe and thorough approach to making and serving our community food. When arriving at the restaurant PLEASE:

  • Come inside to the host stand to receive your order
  • Wear masks at pick up
  • Maintain proper social distancing of 6 feet as suggested by the CDC.
  • Have patience with us while we figure out these new systems with fewer hands!

Our Staff is taking every precaution to keep you safe, please extend the same courtesy to them. We are also trying to minimize our impact on the environment as best we can under these circumstances in spite of all the PPE and takeout supplies required of this new model.  We are doing our best to offer you the same quality flavors and service we did when the restaurant was open.   We feel a responsibility to you, our staff and the greater community to be as safe as we possibly can be within the guidelines with which we have been provided by the state, and through observation of our country and the world at large. We have missed you so much, and can’t wait to serve and bake for you again!

The Middlebury Story

Welcome to Middlebury Hearth!

In the historic Marble Works district.

The Marble Works once processed marble and other rock from Brandon, Vermont. Many historic buildings in the area, such as St. Mary’s Church which was completed in 1903, were built incorporating this local marble and are still standing. In fact, the Marble Works themselves were erected with  scrap marble accumulated during the processing! Today, the Marble Works hosts many Vermont-owned businesses and is a hub of activity in downtown Middlebury.

Please call to make your reservation, as each evening’s availability depends on staffing.  We will open up on-line reservations once we feel more confident in the consistency of our offerings.  Thank you for your patience!

Benefit Bakes

Being a good neighbor is part of American Flatbread’s mission.  We wouldn’t be here today without the strength and support of our community. As a way of giving back, we host weekly Benefit Bakes where we donate a portion of every flatbread sold to an organization working to improve our community.  These evenings are dedicated not only to raising funds but to raising awareness around community issues and individuals.


If you have a local organization that you would like to raise awareness for and would like more information on our Benefit Bakes, please email us using the link below.
