Incredible pastries, wonderful sandwich, great atmosphere. And best of all, no wifi -- actual talking to people and reading of books. What's not to love?

Great spot in all seasons. Convenient for travelers, hang with the locals. Great baked goods, nice sandwiches and soups at lunch. Nice deck in fine weather, gets great morning light in winter for a cup of coffee or tea and a scone. Friendly, community-minded owners. I live here and go as often as possible.

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.
Jodi and Phil have created that sense of "ownership" among everyone who patronizes August First, and that's part of the magic - it's not just another cafe, it's a place you feel you belong.
