American Flatbread – Built on A Belief
In the early 80’s, American Flatbread’s founder, built a primitive oven using stone from his land. Wanting bread but not sure if the oven could handle it, he decided to make a flat bread. The bread was so well received that larger ovens followed. This was followed by many orders for bread, which eventually paved the way to the restaurant in Waitsfield, Vermont that so many know and love.
Wood Fired Wins
Vacationers and locals alike can enjoy delicious, wood fired flatbread pizzas and dishes straight from the primitive ovens found at the restaurant. My family dined there the last night of our recent trip to Sugarbush ski resort. After a long day of skiing at nearby Mad River Glen we were hungry and excited to see what American Flatbread was like. This restaurant came highly recommended and we heard about it from many locals all week.
From the moment we walked in we couldn’t help but be charmed. The night we were there it was a busy place with most tables full. On the menu, a whimsical journal entry from the day read: “Today I woke up after a strange dream and made breakfast of homefries and an egg from our chickens and toast with homemade strawberry jam. I stirred the pot belly stove and put on chunks of maple and beech and was glad for the warmth they gave…”
We started with the salad of the day with dilled cucumbers and it was perfect. The girls split a Cheese Herb flatbread pizza with Mozzarella and Italian Grana Padano Parma Cheese that we both sampled and it was spectacular, so flavourful, smooth and rich. My husband and I both shared the Revolution pizza which featured homemade organic tomato sauce, mushrooms and scallions. Fantastic and filling food after an active day.
American Flatbread in Waitsfield is located on Lareau Farm and Inn. It’s quaint and the food is enjoyable and in the summer months the sprawling field surrounding the restaurant becomes extended dining space. The Inn is also open year round for guests and weddings often take place here as well.
Flatbread Pizza has a smoky flavor that you just cannot get from anything other than a wood fired oven. In addition to the delicious flavour and friendly service this restaurant delivers food with a superior texture. As in fresh food and salad ingredients that are crispy and crunchy and flavourful where they should be. It’s a truly amazing dining treat.
Fine Dining without Being Fussy
American Flatbread brings its customers some of the best in rustic food. For your information they don’t take reservations, and they welcome walk ins. In fact, the food may be fine, but the atmosphere is anything but fussy. You can go straight from the slopes to the table if you so desire. It’s warm, welcoming atmosphere is the perfect end to a long day of exploring the beauty of the area.

American Flatbread is one of my favorite restaurants in this area of Vermont. With delicious food, a wonderful atmosphere, and a location that puts it smack in the middle of the action, American Flatbread is the perfect dining experience for your next ski trip to this gorgeous Vermont area.
We were hosted guests at Sugarbush Ski Resort recently and while there we were also guests at American Flatbread. My opinion is all my own and it is also truthful.
