“Fresh Yummy Sandwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

All the sandwiches have "dog" names and no matter which one you order, you can't go wrong. We've had breakfast as well as lunch there - fresh food including fresh bread and a charming down-home atmosphere. This restaurant fed volunteers who cleaned up after the flood - that's the kind of communitiy I want to support. We often get a sandwich to go - and B. Stiff root beer, too.

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

If you are tired of coffee chains, it doesn't get better than the Barking Dog Cafe. We have been regulars here on the weekends for the past couple years and don't think there is a better coffee/breakfast place. The atmosphere is welcoming and reflects the eclectic culture of Lyons. The Hall Ranch croissant breakfast sandwich is my favorite. My wife is addicted to the Nutella Latte. The owner and staff are local and are welcoming and engaging. The Barking Dog is a local gathering place because of its great atmosphere. It is definitely worth visiting as a destination or when traveling through town!

“Great Local Coffee Shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

We used to come here at least 5x a week for coffee, and we loved it. Greig is an awesome guy. The drinks are great, as is the food. Always get a Hall Ranch bagel sandwich with cheese and sausage. They are a little pricey, but it's definitely worth it if you are just stopping through (especially in the morning, on your way to Estes.

“Good food and coffee, but expect to wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

We've visited the Dog every year during Rockygrass. The food is very good if somewhat limited, and you can expect to wait a while to get your food. However, it's always worth it when we get it, and the coffee and smoothies are tasty. Definitely a Lyons institution, and we'll be back.
