My boyfriend and i had a gift card to Otter Creek Brewery and it was all money well spent. The food that they serve is surprisingly good. You would not expect to find good food being served in a brewery but they know how to. The staff were also very incredibly friendly and helpful. This place is a must stop... More

I cannot believe I have not known about this bakery before. From the onset, walking into this place stimulates, challenges and soothes the senses with gorgeous offerings, beautiful loaves artfully displayed, petite baked treats, all nicely nestled into display cases. The presentation does not disappoint; our butter croissants and popovers were equal to any, and my espresso-in-auto kept me smiling... More

The Moose cookie was very good, and crunchy. The chocolate chunk cookie was just as good. Great with their espresso. Very friendly service. Limited seating.

Is it worth the money for expensive baked goods? Here the answer is yes once you get over sticker shock. Of course I can bake for less cost at home...but I was visiting and working at Middlebury College and coming to this bakery is a treat for the tongue and the psyche. Goodness in every bite. Just do it. You... More

Wonderful visit. Very tasty brews. We took some home with us to upstate NY, which we would never find there. Limited edition. Our waiter was very knowledgeable. The most interesting dish I have ever had was their New Age(I hope I have the right title) macaroni and cheese. it consisted of shells, gouda cheese, pieces of butternut squash, kale and... More

We went to the bakery on our first day in Middlebury looking for baked goods and found a great place for lunch. The potato soup and reuben sandwich were excellent. We ended up stopping by a few days later on our way home to pick up more soup and desserts to take home to enjoy later.

Otter Creek Bakery is a perfect, small-town bakery with coffee, etc and all the wonderful tasties you could imagine. The folks behind the counter are great-friendly, helpful and happy. I dislike going into coffee places where everyone is dour and grumpy. Otter Creek is wonderful!

We visited a friend for breakfast and had the yummiest scones and cinnamon twists. Of course, we needed to make another pass through before traveling home for road trip snacks. We purchased the most delicious chocolate meringue cookie! Yum -- crispy, crunchy, airy, chocolatey delight.

Tiny space, coffee was alright....loved my sandwich (the vermonter.....mmmm yummy goat cheese) but pricey as all get out. I mean I will drop money on epic bakery items but I wasn't blown away but anything here (space, baked items, coffee or prices) but the sandwich was decent.
