This place is wonderful! Delicious breakfast food. I had avocado toast and it was amazing! Their rolls and bread are magnificent! They have vegetarian and vegan options. Great atmosphere! They call themselves a laptop free zone.

Great place a few blocks from the waterfront. Had a wonderful meal - Avocado toast and health smoothie bowl. The bakery is in premise so fresh baked breads are a must - especially the Maple biscuits. Worth the find!!

A bakery with salads and sandwiches. Garage doors which open to give it an airy feel. Felt like I was in France with the whitewashed brick wall, wooden shelves of bread, and flowers at the entrance. Eclectic group of people talking or reading a book...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!
