In the title compound, C9H11NO2, the dihedral angle between the amide group and the benzene ring is 10.6 (1)°. In the crystal, mol­ecules are connected via N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, supported by a C—H⋯O contact, forming chains along b. These chains are linked by C—H⋯π inter­actions to give a three-dimensional network.
