Stopped here on a Sunday for mid morning coffee and snack. The coffee was very good and the pastries were excellent. Next trip up to Lyons will include breakfast or lunch at the barking dog.

All the sandwiches have "dog" names and no matter which one you order, you can't go wrong. We've had breakfast as well as lunch there - fresh food including fresh bread and a charming down-home atmosphere. This restaurant fed volunteers who cleaned up after the flood - that's the kind of communitiy I want to support. We often get a... More

If you are tired of coffee chains, it doesn't get better than the Barking Dog Cafe. We have been regulars here on the weekends for the past couple years and don't think there is a better coffee/breakfast place. The atmosphere is welcoming and reflects the eclectic culture of Lyons. The Hall Ranch croissant breakfast sandwich is my favorite. My wife... More

We used to come here at least 5x a week for coffee, and we loved it. Greig is an awesome guy. The drinks are great, as is the food. Always get a Hall Ranch bagel sandwich with cheese and sausage. They are a little pricey, but it's definitely worth it if you are just stopping through (especially in the morning,... More

We've visited the Dog every year during Rockygrass. The food is very good if somewhat limited, and you can expect to wait a while to get your food. However, it's always worth it when we get it, and the coffee and smoothies are tasty. Definitely a Lyons institution, and we'll be back.

During our trips to Rockygrass, we always stop here for breakfast on Saturday morning. The food is fresh, the coffee hot and the atmosphere relaxed. Love it!!! Great place to start the day!!!

We stopped here for breakfast after leaving Longmont and on the way up to Estes Park. Delicious! I had the best breakfast sandwich I have probably ever had - the Sleepy Lion. It was on an "everything" bagel with cream cheese, tomatoes, egg, and bacon. It was outstanding. My husband had a breakfast burrito that was wonderful too. Coffee -... More

Good food, good prices, good public relations... A local's favorite hangout. I'm always up for one of their bagel and egg sandwiches in the morning. And great coffee, too. I was impressed with their organic half and half :)

I found this cafe/coffee shop to be extremely delightful. The staff was beyond friendly and knowledgeable about their products and the service was always fast and with a smile. After being in Lyons for 10 days they saw me coming and knew what I was going to order. They even let me buy some of their wonderful pumpkin bread with... More
