Barking Dog Roasters
Ranked #1 of 2 Coffee & Tea in Sonoma
Description: Since 1995 (with a couple of bumps and grinds in the road) Barking Dog has been providing high quality, freshly roasted coffee products to the Sonoma Valley community. For almost 20 years Barking Dog has purchased only premium Arabica beans and has roasted them to perfection in-shop to ensure absolute freshness. Our Roastmaster has been roasting coffee for us for over 10 years, having learned from a master roaster on our premises with our Probat Roaster. We roast in small batches which, though less efficient than large batches, helps ensure that the release is perfectly timed to capture the flavor profile of the particular bean variety at its peak. By roasting just-in-time for bar service and shipments we guarantee freshness. In the meantime Barking Dog has become a central meeting place and event venue for locals and out-of-towners alike. Local entertainers find Barking Dog to be an ideal small-setting venue for weekend and occasional after hours shows. The atmosphere is invitingly funky, the people are friendly and service oriented, and the products are very, very good. I assure you that if you're looking for great coffee, you've found it. On the other hand, if you're looking for trendy, you won't find it here. If you're looking for gimmicks, or the latest technology, or the most exotic this or that, this is not the place. Barking Dog is about putting a fine edge on the basics. As we have put the better part of 20 years into this (with the help of some brilliant coffee savants), we believe we have mastered the art of the cup and of roasting coffee to perfection, brewing it just right and serving it with pleasure.

Nice alternative to Big 3 across the street. Get the caramel flavored syrup in you latte. Perfection!

They moved south three blocks. Now at 18133 Sonoma Hwy at Boyes Blvd (across from Big 3 Diner at Sonoma Mission Inn). Larger space.

My favorite coffee in the world was Barking Dog's East Timor. Haven't seen it in years (small batches and availability). Friendly staff, free wifi, comfy sofas as well as tables/chairs. Occasional live music. No problems hanging out. One or two small tables out front.

SO MUCH BETTER THAN STARBUCKS. Almost as good at Peet's.

They sell a variety of beans, but only have one decaf. They carry baked goods (some from Artisan Bakery), a few sandwiches, and a long list of coffee drinks and smoothies. They have six or eight flavors of gelato. Also the usual assortment of cute mugs, hats, etc. Frequent purchase program (buy 10, get one free).

Wasn't worth the money. Coffee cake was dry and dense with no flavor, chilled chai frappé was overly seasoned and it was placed in a hot glass mug right out of the dishwasher. So it immediately started to melt.

There are so many other choices to try in town. Head down to the Sonoma Plaza and check out the Sunshine Cafe. Much better.
