My husband and I were driving through and needed to stop for food. Came in for the breakfast menu and missed it by 5 minutes, but sometimes things happen for a reason! Lunch was delicious, coffee was hot, and the ambiance was just what we...More

This is the kind of place where the energy just feels great. We had breakfast with our daughter and just liked sitting there watching everyone and smelling the fresh baked treats. The turmeric milk was the best I ever had, but was very peppery/spicy. It...More

Stopped into August First for a quick breakfast. I had the sausage and egg breakfast sandwich and home fries plus a lemon/ginger scone. Everything was very good, including the coffee. The baked good are exceptional. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the...More

We were looking for a quick lunch without the hassle of having to wait for our food from either a waitress or a long line of sorts. We stopped by here based on other Trip Advisor reviews (which I use religiously). What a great find!...More

This is the sort of casual, granola-y bakery cafe that you find in Burlington, Portland (Maine), Portland (Oregon), and Seattle. It is inexpensive (plates range from 9 to 12 dollars), and the sandwiched and salads freshly made. They use bread made on the premises. There...More

August First is a really casual, breakfast and lunch spot. They have some incredible freshly baked pastries and breads. Their Hungarian Rolls are my absolute favorite thing they make. They also have a nice selection of salads and sandwiches. Highly recommended!

Great breakfast and delicious coffee. Great little place out of the way worth a visit. Close to Church Street.

How novel, a breakfast spot that serves food that looks and tastes like food. Everything was local and delicious. Great spot to hang out, too, and sip your coffee.

August First is locally owned and has been serving great pastries, coffee, breakfast and lunch since 2009. A true local favorite, located in a bright and open renovated industrial garage. A very Vermont experience with fresh and delicious food served by a friendly staff. Everything is made from scratch!
