We are now open for table service and we are continuing to offer take out.

On July 4th, our outdoor and indoor dining resumed and reservations will be available for two weeks in advance. Initially reservations will be available over the phone, (802 496 7825).

Notes on available reservations:

  • Please call after 7 pm  Friday-Sunday. We’ll do our best to accommodate as many guests as possible. If you don’t hear from us please know that your requested day was fully booked.
  • Please don’t leave reservation requests on the answering machine, we aren’t able to monitor it.
  • We aren’t able to accept email reservations, however, we are working towards moving our reservation system online to offer our guests greater access to availability.
  • Please be patient, the initial response to reservations has been very positive and somewhat overwhelming. 


We thank our customers for their support during the pandemic. We couldn’t have made it through without you!

To express our gratitude we are continuing to offer take out combined with in-house dining. Although this might mean fewer reservations for dine in guests, we feel indebted to those who supported us. We hope our new service model will better serve our loyal and future customers.

Our service hours: 4 pm-5 pm for take out only, 5 pm – 9 pm for dinner service and take out.

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.
