Fresh baked goods, a funky, healthy atmosphere and NO wifi, makes this a great place to go to really talk to people and "connect"! Love the setting and feeling of August First and it is a great spot to pick up baked goods and walk down to the waterfront with coffee for a casual breakfast. Always good!

We came for breakfast during our stay in Burlington and it was excellent. I had a maple biscuit while my husband had the chocolate au pain. A lot of bakeries we find the baked goods to be bordering stale but both of these were nice and fresh. The biscuit was sweet and flaky. It was pretty busy and loud but... More

I walked in exactly at 11.50 after parking in front. The young lady at the counter helped me fill my order of a combo: soup du jour and a half Vermonter sandwich. As I sat to eat at a wood table the hungry lunch crowd filled the room to the door. I finished my fresh delicious meal, cleaned up and... More

We stopped in for a late afternoon snack during a drizzly day trip. We totally enjoyed our baked goods - awesome maple scone. As good as homemade from a great baker!

Didn't try the coffee here but not a huge coffee selection. However, the baked goods and sandwiches for breakfast are absolutely high quality amazing! I got the Chipotle one and it was so big I split it! So much flavor and amazing bread. Come here to eat a quick but filling breakfast sandwich!

Visited here our last morning and were blown away. The coffee was excellent and our breakfast was a very pleasant surprise. There were four different breakfast sandwiches made with fresh made bread and all exceeded our expectations. The muffins and the maple syrup topped giant biscuit were amazing. The staff was friendly and appreciative and felt welcomed!

We stopped for lunch after a day of touristy stuff and were a little overwhelmed by the packed and busy atmosphere. The storefront and interior were beautifully done and very welcoming. I felt a bit rushed to pick something, but they were very busy and I can understand that. I finally chose a delicious BLT. Luckily, we found a table,... More
