“Good coffee and a fun attitude”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

Salty Dog is a great little coffee shop on the Harbor in Brookings. They have yummy coffee concoctions and quality house coffee. We loved the interior. Lots of photos, local art, and a cozy place to sit. It does have free wi-fi, and you can cozy up on the couch or sit at one of their tables, which appeared to be handmade, and were quite unique. The barista who served us was friendly and had a fun attitude which spread throughout the shop. Now and then, a local would come in and they were on first name terms, which was neat to see. Often, the people make the place, and in this case, that was absolutely true. While the coffee was good and the atmosphere funky and creative, the barista was really the soul of the place. We went back several times!

“Great people”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

We read that this was the place for coffee in Brookings. The guy working was great. Lots of fun to chat with, and a local with lots of stories. However, the coffee is a bit weak, especially the decaf, per my wife's review.

“decent espresso drinks, nice folks”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

I'm a total, insufferable coffee snob, so the fact that I came there twice says something. I just get lattes, no sugars. I take my foo-foo drinks straight up! It's not exotic in quality, but far better than I expect from places like this. It's kind of a cozy little place, would be a good place to do some reading or chatting on a rainy day. The barista was very nice and accommodating. I asked her to add a little more steamed milk to my latte and she was genuinely pleased to do it.
