This little café captures Burlington’s vibe perfectly. It’s a great place for a healthy lunch. The maple biscuit is really good. I would definitely come here too often if I lived in Burlington!

Have always been highly satisfied with everything at August, sometime quite crowded but worth the wait. Recommend everything on the menu with great pleasure.

Stopped in for breakfast - served quickly and the egg and spinach sandwich was quite good. Coffee was so-so. Plenty of seating at 9 AM on a Tuesday. It is a "no laptop zone" so do keep that in mind.

It was hard to order, I wanted everything on the menu, perhaps I'm bakery deprived. Settled on cup of fantastic mushroom soup and half of a mozzarella/tomato on a baguette. All very nice. My latte was also very nice. We went back for afternoon snack...More
