My favourite place in Brantford

Blue Dog is one of my and my girlfriend's favourite places to go in Brantford. The atmosphere is quaint and cozy and their food selections are always good. It is the perfect place to spend a quiet morning or afternoon having a good conversation or reading a good book. If you're in the area this is... read more

Great food. Happy staff. Our favourite place to go to for a quick or relaxing bite to eat. The patio is always well kept and gorgeous to sit around with friends or even just a good book

I hadn't been back to Brantford or the Blue Dog for five years--what a surprise that it was still chugging along and packed at 2pm on a Monday! The place was buzzing with conversation and some industrious individuals on laptops. They're licensed and serve monster turkey BLT wraps. Instead of going to a coffee chain, you get some personality here,... More

Since its arrival in our neighbourhood this place gas been a "home away from home" for many of us! It's comfortable ambience, great coffee (I always have a medium bold) and treats, are a big draw and it is usually bustling with locals and folks picking up coffee enroute to work, etc. The Wicked Thai soup, Rebecca's specialties, and their...

I am a coffee snob. I hate to admit it but it's true. I also visited after 2 weeks in Europe drinking excellent espresso. I wanted to like this place as I can never get a descent coffee when I am in Brantford visiting family. The atmosphere was ok but nothing special. Very small town atmosphere. I had a double... More

It is a great place to relax and eat some homemade food. Chairs are comfy. Been here many times after swimming lessons on a Saturday. Always happy with the service and food and the experience.

Convenient location. Stately yellow brick converted house. Great atmosphere - tall ceilings, local art, assortment of seating arrangements, comfortable. Very good service - friendly and attentive. My decaf soy latte was very nice. Comfortable place for solo dining. Free wifi. Wheelchair accessible, large, attractive, and clean washrooms.

Ordered for a group of 18 last week and it was fantastic! Great quality, large portions, outstanding taste, and fantastic service. Delivered right on time and the team loved it! Highly recommend using Blue Dog for a business lunch caterer!!

The sitting area of the renovated house is really nice. The most unique cafe in Brantford. I am not a huge fan of their coffee though. Seems like the beans are burnt, and tastes more like a starbucks. The staff also seems lackluster in their jobs, which for me is a downer.

Always good coffee, great space, freezing cold inside (winter and summer), teenage girls behind the counter more interested in their social lives than serving customers
