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.

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

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.

The baked items looked good, but my friends and I walked out upon discovering there were no gluten free options for baked goods. In today's world that's archaic as so many people have Celiac.

We tried the La Brioche Bakery and Cafe after going to have breakfast at the coffee corner across the street. We were pleasantly surprised that they had some good coffee drinks there and could accommodate all annoying requests! Great service and drinks.

Enjoyed the spinach and feta stuffed croissant and the pumpkin tart. The croissant was the divine and the crust on the tart perfect.
