This is a small Bakery that is always crowded. The treats look amazing but we did not have good luck with the variety of cookies/pastries that we tried. I hate to say it but they tended to be overpriced and did not taste that good. Many were on the dry side or just bland. The coffee they sell was good.

Over the last 30 years,Ben & Sarah have built a destination place from the ground up with passion, love, and hard work. A mind spinning selection of homemade breads, pastries, and sandwich specialties. Be sure to book early when the soft shells come in!

You could plunk this cafe down in Cambridge and it would be at home. It even has Cambridge sky high prices. Our pastries were great, but the coffee was "meh" and the service was "entitled". Sorry, it is a privilege that I purchased from you, not that you served me - -I paid for that service.

We were introduced to Otter Creek Bakery through the Inn on the Green in Middlebury where we stayed during a vacation. For breakfast, the Inn served Otter Creek Bakery rolls, breads, croissants, and pastries. Everything is so good! This is a wholesome bakery with lots of whole grain products, but also other, more traditional fare. The café is adorable and... More

As soon as you walk into this delightful cafe and bakery, your eyes feast on the delectable baked treats that you just want to say, "I'll take one of each!" My husband and I shared a hummus pocket that was made on one of their fresh breads. The tomato, lettuce and onion were so fresh that I think they must... More

Small, homey, atmospheric. Good deserts and a great variety of them. Sandwiches and salads are available. Espresso leaves a lot to be desired but drip coffee is quite decent. Additional seating outside.

Looking for lunch and Otter Creek Bakery was recommended for their sandwiches. Enjoyed lunch outside on the patio and then purchased a loaf of sourdough rye to bring home. Right downtown, not far from the college, too. I'd return!

Middlebury is one of those smaller college towns that you can find here and there, and at times, it can be a pain finding a place that has decently priced goodies in the morning. Otter Creek Bakery is one of those places that does a great job at providing good service and good food in equal measure, though how the... More

I grabbed a breakfast burrito and a cup of joe to go on a recent business trip--could only manage to eat half the burrito because it's so filling. Great coffee, wonderful patio where the town of Middlebury gathers to share the start to the day. If you're visiting, hang out here for awhile--you will get a flavor of Midd that's... More

Had mid-morning coffee, croissant, meringue, and elephant ears on the patio. Delicious! Great selection of baked goods, including specialty breads. This would be a go-to coffee spot for me from spring to fall if I was a resident.
