“Looks like a place for the locals”

When we were there for a mocha coffee and muffin, there were three others who were locals and enjoyed the homey atmosphere. The coffee was good and a fair price, but the muffin was dry and yet was not on the day old plate. They are right on the water which is good, but the pastry selection was limited. I would rate it a little lower than Starbucks, but higher on the homey factor.

Forget Starbucks. This is the place. It's small, but it's right at the harbor, has great coffee and pastries, and it's a place where locals go to meet and hang out. If the weather is nice, get your coffee and sip as you walk along the dock and read the interesting posters about the tsunami that hit just a year ago and devastated the harbor.

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!

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.
