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...More

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...More

Easy, open atmosphere; order at counter; pick a seat inside or out; wait for your name to be called. Stopped here for a mid-afternoon, 3pm, sandwich. Despite the time, the place was busy but order filled promptly. I like a bread that fights back. That's...More

Friendly staff at the counters. Very large sandwiches, plan on sharing unless you are very hungry. limited drink offerings, non-alcoholic. no a/c and tables were none too clean. Next time I would take out and eat at the nearby park if Wx permits.

What a great little place! I wish I could eat bread, it all looked AMAZING! My husband said it was! I had a quinoa salad that was beyond delicious! Wish our stay had been longer so we could have visited again and again!

Wow! This place has fresh, quality baguettes like none other! Crunchy, fresh. This is truly a bakery, not just a storefront.

We LOVE this bakery, they have the best French bread we've come across outside of Paris. We were in Burlington for 2 nights recently, found this place the first morning (thanks to TripAdvisor!) and liked it so much we chose to return there for our...More

A nice local bakery but the breakfast sandwiches and baked goods were disappointing. I asked for “whole grain” expecting bread but it was a pretty large whole grain roll … much more bread than I wanted. I ordered egg, cheese and bacon and that was...More

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!
