Excellent coffee and amazing pastries. Seating indoors or out. Friendly owner and staff. Try the Carmelita and the Red Velvet cupcake for dessert -- you won't be disappointed! Coffee Expresso is a definite stop for anyone traveling through or staying nearby.

We originally picked Pony Espresso because they advertised free wifi and then we felt like we needed to buy something. We were glad we did. The pastries, the ice cream, the coffee drinks were all wonderful. Mark encouraged us to stay and use the wifi, then gave us advice on where to hike in the area. Although we camped an hour away from Dolores, we ended up going back several times. All in all - a wonderful experience. Ask him about his unique drink - the Colorado Ranger!

Our family made a trip to Telluride over the 4th of July and stopped into this small and yet inviting Coffee shop and Bakery. The first thing that hit us was how clean the building was and how pleasant the employees were. Then the coffee was amazing and if that was not enough the breakfast burritos where incredible.. so we decided to grab some baked goodies to go for a later snack. Seriously this is the place to stop on your way to Telluride and on your way home...Carmelitas and Red Velvet cupcakes should be on your to go list!!!! Can't wait for next year to try there other espresso drinks...they are AAAAAAAAAA+

This little coffee shop is amazing! In addition to coffee they serve ice cream, breakfast burritos, muffins, sandwiches, you name it. I always have a difficult time eating out due to my dairy allergy, but the owners have plenty of options for avoiding dairy and they are very accommodating. They even carry an amazing specially created chocolate ice cream made with almond milk. And it makes a great shake too. I stop by every time I travel through Dolores and will continue to do so so long as they are there. Definitely one of my favorite places to go. Thanks!
