Lovely place with many smoothie, coffee, tea and food options. Very friendly staff. You can design your own smoothie. It's a great place to sit and watch the happenings on the green.

Dirt Cowboy bake their own pastry, and it's consistently very good, from plain butter croissants to lighter-than-air vol-au-vents. Esspresso and its derivatives are reliably good too. The individually made drip-filter coffee is a hit or miss. The interior however needs not only a good refresher, but a major redesign to become a clean, cozy and inviting space…

There are almost too many coffee options to choose from! I had no clue where to start, but luckily they had descriptions of each bean flavor on the wall. I went to the Dirt Cowboy three days in a row and my favorite brew was the Ethiopia Harrar. As someone who is lactose intolerant, I appreciated that the baristas were... More

Great coffee. Delicious pastries. Soooo long line (and the waiting time that goes with it). If your Lucky and the line is "limited" Inside the shop, go ahead and enjoy ! Has a couple tables outdoor (weather permiting ; )

This is not complicated -- the Dirt Cowboy is the best place in Hanover for coffee and what goes with coffee.

We just wanted a coffee and iced tea and it took a really long time. Ordering did not take too long, but it was probably another 10-15 before we got our drinks. I read review of the pastries, but did not try them.

Don't give up on a long line. It is definitely worth waiting. My favorite is a sandwich with French Vanilla. When you are in town, try it out!

Love the lemon pastry, flakey perfection. They open earlier than everything else in town so if you need coffee you only have to wait til 6:30 am.

A Hanover icon for years, Dirt Cowboy currently struggles to compete with the big name brand down the street. I strongly urge folks though to pass on what you can get on any street corner world wide and go for a local solution to quality coffee, tee, and amenities. Brewed on demand by the cup, the coffee is superb. Add... More

Delicious food. Extraordinary Hot chocolate and happy staff. It gets pretty packed and can be hard to find a seat if you are staying, but a great little place to chill and enjoy
