Went for first time today to bakery and got 2 cheesecakes and butter cookies and the cheesecakes were very rubbery and tasted terrible. Ended up throwing both along with the terrible cookies in the trash! Service and looks are very appealing but dont waste your money. I was very disapointed. Especially after asking what they recomended and them suggesting the... More

Otter Creek Bakery is simply fantastic. Nothing beats an Otter Creek latte and croissant (ham or spinach or plain, all good). The meringue kisses are some of my favorites, along with the cinnamon twists and any muffins they make. Try the homemade dog treats and bring some bread home with you (or buy sandwiches for a picnic). One of the... More

Through the Trip Advisor ratings we were well aware of the Otter Creek Bakery during a recent weekend stay in Middlebury. We finally hit the bakery on our way out of town early on Sunday morning. We thought it would be good, but we weren’t for what Otter Creek truly is - a world class bakery. My wife and I... More

I stopped here for lunch on a sunny, summers day while passing through town. I had a very tasty veggie sandwich and a very good cookie. I distinctly remember trying to decide what to buy, as everything (including other people's orders) looked so delicious! I sat outside at a table while watching cars pass by and enjoying this delightful lunch.

We had their Bread and a few treats. They were amazing and will be stopping again on our way out of town. Loved the sourdough anf honey oat bread. Honey cornbread scone and maple oatmeal cookie was good as well!

The Otter Creek Bakery at the head of Main Street produces wonderful breads, pastries, cakes to die for and some wonderful unexpected surprises. Like soft shell crabs in season, pate sandwiches more. Ben and Sarah Wood are two great chefs who have settled into this remarkable bakery setting and produce some of the finest products in the area. Come for... More

This charming shopfront has a number of delicious specialties. The gingerbread cookies can be skipped, but the maple meringues are so good I hardly want to eat regular ones anymore.

We stopped by Otter Creek for lunch one Saturday afternoon. We had sandwiches and Kale salad. The bread was delicious and believe they used local produce and cheeses. The kale salad was outstanding. Would definitely recommend for casual dining. We sat outside; the bakery is right in the center so a nice place to take a break.
