Description: Birchgrove Baking is a cozy bakery located in Montpelier, Vermont. Every day, we prepare an assortment of breakfast pastries, scones, cookies, cakes, and tarts, all baked from scratch daily. We also offer house-made warm, fresh doughnuts on Sundays and, seasonally, our own ice cream pops, in addition to coffee and espresso drinks. Of course, we also offer wedding and birthday cakes and would be happy to work with you to plan the perfect cake for your event. Come by, grab a coffee and pastry and enjoy our quiet back deck overlooking the waterfall.

“Best baked good in Vermont (so far)”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

I haven't found better mouse, desserts generally. Very much like the best kind of baked goods you'd find in New York. Very creative and sometimes whimsical. And something very every one with a sweet tooth.

Just stop whatever you are doing now and ask directions to Birchgrove Baking. Go get a coffee and a delicious something and sit there and think about how good life is.

“Heaven in 25 square Feet!”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

This tiny boutique bakery delivers the most exquisitely prepared pastries, scones, tarts and cakes. You can not go wrong here! Buy yourself a raspberry nutella scone, order a coffee, and enter the realm of bliss. And then there are the icecream sandwiches.

“"Warm, colorful, pleasant and cozy little place"”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

Every time you come in to this cozy little bakery , you cannot walk out without one of their excellent cappuccinos or coffees or something sweet and or salty to munch on.

A constant colorful array of different flavors and forms greet you every time. They have some small lunch menus and some gluten-free offerings too.

There is no seating (only two chairs), but you can come in and have something to eat by standing by some round nice tables. There is regrettably, not much space for more seating, but for me, it would be a plus.

Go and check it out if you can... it is worth the trip... and as I have done, I don't regret it!

Thank you so much for your feedback! In regards to the seating, we would also love to offer more places for customers to sit, however we aren't zoned for seating. Vermont health codes require a public restroom in order to offer seating. It's an option we'd love to consider in the future, but at the present time, this major renovation is out of reach for us, especially considering our tiny little space.

Thank you again for your review! We appreciate your constructive feedback and great compliments!
