Good coffee and great pastry

We dropped in for a cup of coffee and something sweet. We both ordered the danish with blueberries and custard. We really enjoyed it. Very fresh and very tasty. The cafe is very informal, you go up to the counter order what you would like and wait for it. They also serve sandwiches etc. We also... read more

We stopped there for breakfast. We had several different pastries. I had a pumpkin muffin delicious. Can't remember what my family had but they all enjoyed and said it was delicious. Coffee was the best and the young lady who waited on us was polite and pleasant to talk to so early in the morning at 8:00 a.m. You have... More

This is a downtown spot with indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoors was v sunny and there's no shade, so I say indoors. It's a bit gloomy at all by the front window seats, and rather chaotic and noisy. But the coffee and cheesecake combo was good.

SOME PASTRY & BAKED GOODS OFFERINGS La Brioche is average in many ways. Some sandwiches are premade and wrapped to be instantly served. I got a ½ Ruben served to me unwrapped and unheated, and my entire order was handled in a very casual “oh who cares” manner. Most pastries look inviting, but they smaller than average and the chocolate... More

My husband and I came upon this cafe on our trip through Vermont. Our sandwiches, soup, pastry, and coffee were so delicious! I loved that this cafe is run by the New England Culinary Institute.

La Brioche is a very good stable cafe. I believe it is run by the New England Culinary Institute and all the food and baked items are made by teachers and students. The baked items are delicious, especially their cakes. The restaurant is set up so that you order your food at the counter, pay for it and then take... More

great coffee and hot chocolate...pastries are delightful. The students run the place...lots of smiles and friendly faces. Yes it is a bit pricey but well worth it. Great breads also....try the sour dough bread.

I've eaten at La Brioche many, many times. It's a little like eating at a friend's house, where the food may be good, or it may not be. Students prepare the food and sometimes it seems like

This is usually a good spot for simple food offerings and coffee. A bit on the pricy side for what you get, but not outrageously so. The baked goods are excellent. Service can be a bit abrupt and impersonal. Clean, but not upscale. Reliable for simple fare.
