Exceptional Bakery

We travel to Middlebury fairly frequently and Otter Creek Bakery is always one of the highlights for me. I tend to be pretty picky about baked goods, so if they aren't really great, I just don't bother. But OCB is truly one of the places I just have to go when I'm there.

We come to Middlebury several times a year, and suffice to say that our days in Vermont are not complete without going to Otter Creek Bakery at least once each day. Being a serious lover of baked goods, sandwiches, and coffee, I can confidently say that Otter Creek Bakery has the best croissants, cookies, bread, and espresso drinks that I... More

So beyond all the goodies you expect to find in a bakery, are the delicious, creative soups and ready to go salads, such as thai peaunut noodle, roasted beets with pistachios and citrus or their spin on chicken salad. I am a frequent customer and often stop by in the morning for a salad and croissant (or a wedge of... More

Over the years I have purchased items from this bakery many times, but have not had the opportunity lately. Sandwiches and pastries have been outstanding. Outdoor seating is attractive, but limited in sized. I look forward to the chance to visit once again.

Not my favorite lunch spot in Middlebury, but not too bad for sandwiches. The real draw for me is the cakes and cookies which are excellent.

We have eaten there many times and enjoyed very good food and service. Today we stopped in at 430 pm for an early sandwich and soup. The counter woman acted like we ruined her day because we wanted to order. Then she snapped at us several times. The sandwiches included brown and black decomposing lettuce and lentil/swiss chard soup with... More

love the beer selections, but the food is about what you should expect from a brew pub. Nice cheese plate, but otherwise the food was pretty ordinary

If you're driving through lovely Middlebury, hungry and looking for a place for lunch, don't miss tiny Otter Creek Bakery. This little gem provides a wide variety of delicious sandwiches on their freshly baked breads, soups, and tempting pastries. There is outdoor seating on nice days, but Otter Creek is small with only a few tables opposite the counter where... More

OK not great- the gingerbread cookie was stale- and the small fruit tart looked great but was nothing special- only a couple of very small tables to sit at
