“Melt in your mouth pastry and fantastic bread”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

This bakery is at first sight a humble eatery but their pastries are melt in your mouth good. Today I had a Hungarian roll which is a crescent pastry filled with walnut meringue. Their coffee is delicious....not sure which brand they use, but it didn't have a dark bitter taste the way some coffee shops/houses have. I also bought a loaf of bread which I had a piece of later in the day at home. Really good - crusty/chewy crust with a soft, terrific texture center. The kind of bread I can't make at home and I can eat a whole loaf of without any butter or olive oil and be perfectly content.

“Delicious and made with love”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

August First is one of many Vermont establishments that focuses on creating beautiful food and baked goods that are local and use fresh and healthy ingredients. The salads are fantastic and the sandwiches are great too. They have a loyal coffee following too. The funky location only adds to the charm.

“Great breakfast find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We ate breakfast here and the food was excellent. The garage style doors open up on a sunny day and there are some tables outside too. The bread was superb and the baked goods fresh and really tasty. My 8 year old loved the toasted roll with homemade raspberry jam and peanut butter!

“great coffee, excellent pastries, and no laptops!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

The owners of this cafe have instituted a "no laptop" policy, which seems to have made it just as popular, or maybe even more so, to those of us who are mourning the lack of "sociable" places to go. Add to that the wonderful pastries, the delicious coffee and efficient and friendly service, and you have the perfect place for visiting with your friends and family, and enjoying the delicious food items available. It is a huge, light space, but it retains its intimacy with mismatched furniture and a big bookcase full of books (the printed type).
