Warm & cozy atmosphere, nice people and the BEST mocha frappuccinos PERIOD! So much fun to grab one and wander thru the flea market across the street before heading down to the beach! It's what summer is all about!

“A treasure in Okanagan Falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014

I'm a long time resident of Okanagan Falls and was delighted when Dogtown opened so that I could indulge my latte habit. The coffee has been top notch for a while now and I enjoy a latte with a breakfast cookie several days a week. The evolution of the menu over the past several months is particularly exciting. This past week, I enjoyed Chef Karl's lunch special of fettucine with mussels and home-made chorizo sausage. It was absolutely delicious. As a local, it is such a treat to have gourmet creations at café prices. If you are looking for great coffee and food - or a feeling of community - check it out.

“disappointed at Dogtown”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

I live in nearby Penticton, and have read about Dogtown Cafe in the paper recently. I was excited to visit this spot and perhaps compare it to the local coffee spots I like to frequent.
The staff seemed quite friendly, which was refreshing, and I was warmly greeted at the door.
My eyes roamed around the small quaint location, but I did not smell coffee, or any good cooking scents, as I expected.
I would have ordered my americano and a muffin or pastry, but the muffins in the display did not look very appealing, as they were small, flat and ordinary looking. I opted to just have an Americano.
While waiting, I went to use the washroom. Sad to say, the bathrooms were very dirty. The toilet itself looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a very long time, and floors, walls etc were in bad need of a good mopping and cleaning. Nothing a little elbow grease couldn't solve.
I then became more aware of my surroundings, after exiting the washroom, and noticed the floors all through the cafe were in need or a sweep and a wash. Perhaps I came at a bad time,(just before lunch, weekday), but it turned me off and needless to say, I will stick to the coffee spots I know and love. Sorry Dogtown, but you lost me first time around.

I'm sincerely sorry to hear of your negative experience with us at Dogtown. I want to assure you that we are aware of these issues and we are working hard to address them. The recent press and publicity that we have received have meant that the business has grown at a rate far beyond our expectations. We have found ourselves short staffed and having a very tough time keeping up. We are in the process of hiring and training new staff and can assure you that the issues you experienced are of the utmost priority for us.

I want to thank you very much for your review. It is very important to us that we hear ALL feedback so that we can address issues directly. I hope that in the future you will be willing to give us another chance and that we can remedy your current perception of our business. We appreciate so very much that you took the time to drive out to see us and again, I apologize sincerely for your bad experience.

“Excellent food, hohum atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

I went with a friend for lunch and had the most wonderful soup and cappuccino. Although I was not offered any choice in my bread - white bread not a favorite of mine - the meal was delicious and very affordable. It is always hard to find someone to serve a really good cappo but this was the perfect combination of espresso, milk, and rich, thick foam.
The atmosphere needs some work though. The chairs were hard with no padding and table area had no character.
We will be returning, though. You can't beat the food.
