Local joint beats out the chain!

You can always go to Starbucks, but you can't always go to the Dirt Cowboy. For a larger selection of gourmet coffee, brewed by the cup to order, plus a great selection of sweet and savory pastries. This place is by far the better place to stop for your morning carbs and caffein!

Friendly staff, espresso can be very good or just average, depending on barista. Pastries or biscotti available. Price is reasonable.

We were in town to visit the Dartmouth campus and made a stop here for a quick lunch since it is right across from the campus and we were pressed for time. Upon entering, it was a bit of an odd set up. There is a cash register in the front and larger seating area in the back separated by... More

Good selection of sandwiches, pastries, and extensive range of coffees. Very busy on each of our two visits, ( a good indication of quality ) and we always got what we ordered although everything appeared chaotic. Well worth visit.

We visited here during a recent stop in Hanover. The overall opinion of our group was poor to average. The shop was not clean (LARGE cobwebs hanging from overhead lights). I ordered an Italian croissant heated. It was the greasiest messy looking croissant I have ever seen!! We also ordered smoothies which were average at best. I am not know... More

Unfortunately, I've now had three bad service experiences in a row. Time one: I was given someone else's order--we were able to... More

Located just off the main mall on Dartmouth's campus, this unassuming coffee shop delivered is fantastic customer service and great espresso drinks. I don't think they're used to seeing young families there, but they were very accommodating.

Service varies but is never horrible and there are a few wonderful folks who work there who really care. Coffees always good. House masala chai using honey. Housemade chai marshmallows are not to be missed

We stopped in to pick up lunch for our drive home from Dartmouth college. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had sandwiches and dessert. Both were very good and enjoyed them.
