Quite a quaint and unusual eatery with the best homemade pizza I have ever encountered. I didn't have opportunity to try anything else but I think this is a great place.

Centrally located between the waterfront and downtown, this is more than a coffee shop - and they're expanding! The coffee was weak that day (it's a new local roaster - not my style), but the pastries and egg sandwich more than made up for it! Reasonable priced quality ingredients. (We have started buying the multigrain bread for sandwiches at home.... More

This bakery cafe is off of the beaten path, which makes it a local favorite. I can not go there without seeing someone I know. The food is very good and fresh. Great Panini's, salads, baked goods. This restaurant is computer free (a little annoying, but I understand from a business standpoint) so don't expect to linger and work while... More

Stayed nearby for a bit and enjoyed the warmth and smell of fresh baked goods....love the Maple biscuit with a hot coffee for a quick breakfast... Great salads and even the grilled cheese made with Vermont cheddar are tasty... Homey local place that makes you feel good

Stopped here for lunch on a business day. I ordered the Mediterranean salad and it was very good! I also got the Kia's coffee. I've had breakfast items here too that were awesome! One thing to remember they don't want you to use your computer or your tablet while eating here. That doesn't bother me.

a breakfast sandwich with hollandaise, a warm scone, great coffee and a place to meet and chat with friends... what's not to love?

I adore this place, almost as much as my school-aged sons do. Try the amazing Hungarian rolls, the cinnamon rolls (indescribably delicious, just the best ever), great coffee, and baguettes that are just perfect. I personally applaud their no-screen policy, and you may too once you're reminded of how a cafe used to be before everyone was glued to their... More

I’ve been a regular at August First since they first opened, and it’s become my go-to place to grab a cup of coffee and a breakfast sandwich in the morning, or to meet a friend for lunch. The bread is as good as I’ve had in New York or Montreal. Be sure to try their baguettes, the jalapeno cheddar bread,... More

Nice bakery, good coffee, nouveau industrial decor, but if you open a laptop to check your mail or read a paper they will throw you out. Seriously. Just be aware.

I love August First. I crave their lemon ginger scones and their hearty bowls that have feta and chickpeas and dill and other yummy herbs. The atmosphere is cozy on cool days and sunny and light on warm ones. I personally like their no laptop policy. I always run into people I know, and we chat and it is a... More
