Was passing through BV on the way to Telluride. Needed a place to get a good hot tea. Went into town and found the Brown Dog. They had quite the selection of teas as well as coffees. Instead of a hot chai, we went with a chai milkshake. What a refreshing drink on a hot day!! Also had a scone... More

This place used to be Bongo Billy's (they moved downtown, three blocks off of US 24), and is still very very busy with people who stop off here. I can only assume that its stays so busy, because of the former owners and the great location they have being on US24 just as one pulls into BV. They make good... More

We had breakfast and coffee there most days of our stay in Buena Vista. Very good service, great coffee, scones and almond twists. Great job everyone. Thanks.

They roast their own coffee and it is good. We each had a vanilla latte they were pretty good, but they could put a little more vanilla in. Other than that will go back. It is a nice place.

My husband and I are coffee snobs and we stopped by this place while driving through Buena Vista to get some coffee - both brewed and to take back to our travel trailer to have the following morning. We were not disappointed. The Ethiopian roast was delicious and perfectly ground for our French press by the staff.

I walked in to what used to be Bongo Billy's expecting that I could still get a reasonable cappuchino. I was wrong. Four people stood behind the counter, two of whom seemed to have just awakened. I gave my order ( the place was empty and quiet at 10 am), they looked at me and finally the taller guy picked... More

Had a non-fat latte. Slow service plus charged extra for a to-go cup! Tasted pretty good though. They have a lot of bulk coffee and tea for sale. I'd go back but would ask them why they charge extra for to-go service. I wonder whether the cost of washing cups is really less than a paper cup/top/cardboard sleeve.

We ordered food with our drinks. The quiche of the day was amazing, the cinnamon roll was huge and so good. Coffee, hot choc, vanilla steamer - all excellent. The shop (including restrooms) was clean and well stocked. The employees were friendly and helpful...even during a busy rush. Would go back any time we are in BV. Excellent! Sit on... More

The Salty Dog is probably the yummiest coffee drink I've ever had… even the skinny version was delicious! Also some of the best chicken salad I've had anywhere… in fact, I'm kind of craving it for lunch even though I'm back in Texas and it's a little far for a lunch run :-) Was nicely surprised to find such a...
