Great selection with local food and freshly made bread you will not soon forget. I had the curried chicken salad sandwich and it was excellent. It is a lively place with fast and friendly counter service and seating inside and out.

Interesting selection for breakfast and lunch. Fast service, friendly people, very fresh and high quality food. No laptops allowed policy helps move the crowds so the limited seating not a big factor. Charming!

Bread is always excellent. Coffee is fresh and hot. Must have the maple biscuits! My egg sandwich was not as good as the last time I had one. I missed the Cheddar jalapeño roll and fresh egg rather than the square of baked egg.

August First Bakery and Cafe 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! Croissants, scones, muffins, Koiugn Amann, healthy soups and salads.
