Great space, a lot of light and the food is fresh and well done. The sandwiches are pretty good as are any of the baked items, particularly the croissants. The coffee is good all around. The parking situation is to be expected of downtown Burlington. As many times I come here, however, the service is not good. The laptop free policy is it's own oddity and debate (this isn't something people are doing on the west coast, regardless of the newspaper article on the policy) - however, the friendliness Burlington seems to have in its independent food industry is sadly lacking here and is replaced with an entitlement I've seen observed from at least one other reviewer. As such, it was my last time here. If you go, try the cookies - and remember, you're doing them the favor by eating there.

The very first food establishment my family and I visited when we arrived in Burlington, VT in summer 2012. At the time, we had no idea that we'd be making Burlington our home just a few months later. Therefore, August First will always hold a sentimental place for us. My wife's a pastry chef/baker by training, and I'm an English major. August First is a new wave bakery with literary foundations. What more could appeal to us?! The breads and pastries are great, and delivered to local restaurants by bicycle when weather permits.

Love the baguettes. The crowd tends to be on the older side. It's a good place to escape the collegiate atmosphere of Burlington. Great atmosphere.

Placed a "to-go" order, but wish I could have stayed. A great atmosphere staffed by smiley, friendly people. And the curry chicken sandwich was delicious. Can't wait to go back when I return to Burlington.
