Is it worth the money for expensive baked goods? Here the answer is yes once you get over sticker shock. Of course I can bake for less cost at home...but I was visiting and working at Middlebury College and coming to this bakery is a treat for the tongue and the psyche. Goodness in every bite. Just do it. You... More

Wonderful visit. Very tasty brews. We took some home with us to upstate NY, which we would never find there. Limited edition. Our waiter was very knowledgeable. The most interesting dish I have ever had was their New Age(I hope I have the right title) macaroni and cheese. it consisted of shells, gouda cheese, pieces of butternut squash, kale and... More

We went to the bakery on our first day in Middlebury looking for baked goods and found a great place for lunch. The potato soup and reuben sandwich were excellent. We ended up stopping by a few days later on our way home to pick up more soup and desserts to take home to enjoy later.

Otter Creek Bakery is a perfect, small-town bakery with coffee, etc and all the wonderful tasties you could imagine. The folks behind the counter are great-friendly, helpful and happy. I dislike going into coffee places where everyone is dour and grumpy. Otter Creek is wonderful!

We visited a friend for breakfast and had the yummiest scones and cinnamon twists. Of course, we needed to make another pass through before traveling home for road trip snacks. We purchased the most delicious chocolate meringue cookie! Yum -- crispy, crunchy, airy, chocolatey delight.

Tiny space, coffee was alright....loved my sandwich (the vermonter.....mmmm yummy goat cheese) but pricey as all get out. I mean I will drop money on epic bakery items but I wasn't blown away but anything here (space, baked items, coffee or prices) but the sandwich was decent.

This small size but big on favors cafe has bakery treats but also makes delicious sandwiches! Pain is or special sandwiches taste fresh and unique in flavor so! The staff are friendly and waiting time depends on size of crowd but reasonable! You can eat in at a small table or outdoors in tables that are shaded under an arbor!... More

After hiking on the TAM in Middlebury we were looking for a place to have lunch. We picked the Otter Creek Bakery on College Street. You can tell that the Middlebury College students and staff like this place as we saw dozens of them stop by. They have about 8 tables outside and very limited table space inside. The menu... More

Not much seating indoors, but no wi-fi which means the tables do actually change from time to time and there are no frowns if you speak to your friend. Pastries and sandwiches are delicious and they have meringues for those who are gluten-free.

We were visiting Middlebury College and needed an afternoon pick-me-up (that is, a pastry and coffee). We were told by a local that Otter Creek Bakery had great cookies. It is a small place but seemed to offer quite a range of tempting baked goods as well as sandwiches. We sat outside and enjoyed people-watching in the heart of Middlebury.

Thank G E
