In the title compound, C11H11NO3, the dihydrofuran-2,5-dione ring has a shallow envelope conformation, with one of the methylene C atoms displaced by 0.216 (1) Å from the other atoms. These near-planar atoms subtend a dihedral angle of 55.88 (8)° with the benzene ring. In the crystal, C-HO hydrogen bonds link the molecules into  chains.
