Our favourite local coffee shop!

Since its arrival in our neighbourhood this place gas been a "home away from home" for many of us!

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

Wonderful place to get a great cup of coffee. Even a better place to enjoy an cold beer on a hot day. Especially love that they serve draft from smaller Ontario brewers. Food is great and is very affordable. Make sure to check out the art work or one of their open mic nights.

This establishment specializes in coffee and for good reason: they know how to do coffee here! I have never had a bad cuppa here, be that regular, latte or cappucino. That is not always the case even in bistros that specialize in coffee elsewhere. The beans are roasted on the premises and the coffee is always served when it is... More
