Based on trip advisor we went to the far dog very much looking forward to a good meal. We were so disappointed to find that they are only open for breakfast right now from 730-1130. So we did not get to eat there and I wanted others to know this major change in hours.

it you aren't there when the doors open you will probably be waiting. The historical building seats about 20 people max but unfortunately there isn't a waiting area inside. Wait list customers are relegated to one park bench or a city park next door. The menu is determined by locally available produce and meat on a daily basis. I've never... More

My son and daughter in law are coffee lovers. They brought me to this shop. Great coffee and capuchins. Really good. What I found amazing was the fresh baked biscuits and homemade gravy. Rich and flavorful. Great breakfast place and not expensive.

Stopped for lunch but found they now close at 2pm. Came back the following day. The food and service was great. Very friendly people, down to earth and conversational. The one draw back is it is very small with limited seating. If you go when there is no rush you can choose your seat otherwise you may not get a... More

Two thumbs up! Surprising that in this small of a town there's a restaurant with such high quality food!! I've eaten here several times during our stay for breakfast and lunch and every time they exceeded my expectations. Simply delicious! I highly recommend The Far Dog; the food is amazing and the employees are very friendly.

This little coffee shop gets right down to basic and what they serve is outstanding. We aren't biscuits and gravy people but we tried a biscuit as that was part of the main egg dish they offer. Wow! I could be a biscuit convert. And, the service was immediate, friendly and helpful. One of our servers was an actress from... More

Far Dog is a super little restaurant. We enjoyed the varied menu and friendly service. Make sure to have a cup of their delicious coffee. I bought a bag to take home. Now I am hooked.

Surprisingly good food served in a small narrow bar. Limited seating but nice big screen tv, mining town decor and quick/excellent service. Located right in downtown Creede. Good choices for food and beverages.

Well-prepared food, fresh ingredients and good service. During a 2 day visit enjoyed the meatloaf, grilled cheese and tomato soup, coconut cream pie, bloody Mary, and a new drink for me of ginger beer and dark rum. Everything was outstanding and I look forward to next season when I will sample more culinary treats.

We are in Creede each summer, so we were anxious to try the newest restaurant--after we had checked Tripadvisor! We were not disappointed with The Far Dog. Three generations of us enjoyed a great meal. The daily special was carnitas tacos with charro black beans, which the adults ordered. There were three tacos! There was not a children's menu, but...
