This little town right on the Arkansas River is alive and hopping summer or winter. Super coffee and baked goods. The whole area is definitely worth a vist for any Colorado traveler.

Bongo Billy's used to be a coffee shop, but it no longer exists. Please take it off trip adviser, as it is now River's Edge Restaurant. Thank you!

Pretty nice little cafe with all kinds of sandwiches and beers and an outdoor patio. Good service and good food. River walk is available from the patio.

I can't get past that. There are other differences. The excellent pastries are gone and a knock off batch bakery is in their place. The superb coffee is gone and a bucks wannabe is left hanging around. I don't get it.

This is a long time fav for locals and for good reason. Located right on the river with outdoor seating and indoor comfort, it's a GREAT place to stop for breakfast, lunch or just read with a good cup of jo. There's often live music and downstairs there is a room for events/lectures. Well worth a stop-by and it's highly... More

This coffee place is conveniently located as you drive into town coming from the south. It has been renamed Brown Dog Coffee and is getting a bit of a face lift. Very good services and snacks.

We love to stop here for a coffee/light lunch when we are in town. Was really surprised to see the improvements this time. Lovely patio right on the river where you can enjoy your coffee and watch the world go by. Staff was friendly and accommodating . Haven't tried it for dinner.

Ate here my first nite in Salida this trip. The service was aweful. It took over 45 minutes to get our food and then it still was not cooked correctly. I did not go back, there are so many other better places in Salida to eat there was no reason to.
