The title indole derivative, C11H11NO2, was synthesized from 1-methyl-1H-indole-3-carb­oxy­lic acid and methanol. The mol­ecule is planar as it is situated on a mirror plane present in the space group Pbcm. In the crystal, mol­ecules form three kinds of inter­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, resulting in a sheet structure in the ab plane. Parallel sheets inter­act by C—H⋯π stacking, stabilizing the crystal packing.
