From-Scratch Pastries & Bread

August First is a locally owned bakery/café in downtown South Burlington known for making customers feel warm and welcomed, along with baking delicious bread.

It opened on August 1, 2009 by husband and wife team Phil Merrick and Jodi Whalen. When coming up with the name for their bakery, they thought about August in Vermont, and how the lake is warm when summer arrives. August 1 also happens to be Lammas Day, which celebrates the annual wheat harvest.

There are lots of tasty, round pastries to enjoy on Pi Day, including cookies, cinnamon rolls, and maple biscuits. They also have Hungarian Rolls, their signature pastry, which is filled with walnut meringue.

Check out their other food and bakery items on the August First Facebook page.
