“Great surprise in small town!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

The Salty Dog is probably the yummiest coffee drink I've ever had… even the skinny version was delicious! Also some of the best chicken salad I've had anywhere… in fact, I'm kind of craving it for lunch even though I'm back in Texas and it's a little far for a lunch run :-) Was nicely surprised to find such a great place in a small town. I have to agree that the service can be a bit slow if the line is long, but hey… if you are in Buena Vista, you are likely on vacation, so slow down, look at all the amazing looking baked goods they also have, talk to whoever you're in line with and then enjoy your coffee!

“Great coffee!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Coffee is always good, and their Kenya Peaberry beans are fantastic.But the sitting space is limited, and waiting in a slow moving line could be frustrating.

“This is NO dog”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

The coffee was really good and the pastry was excellent. They have several tables on the porch. It's a great little spot to relax and enjoy a cup of Joe.

“Great atmosphere but slow service”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Had to wait 15 minutes for a cappuccino that was mostly milk - May have hit at a bad time, but they only had one barista working at 2 pm on a July Saturday. Maybe just working on 'mountain time'?
Good atmosphere and the sandwiches looked good, but the coffee was not worth the wait.

“Dinner”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We tried this place and it was really fun. The food was really great and the folks were very friendly. Some people were using WiFi and a family was playing a card game after their dinner. What a nice place. Hosts were great.
