“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Very nice coffee shop with a lot of individual character and charm. Lovely place to sit out at and enjoy the view. Coffee was a touch on the strong side for me, but I'd definitely go back! Wish there was something like this where I live.

“Now this is a latte!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

The front desk person at my motel suggested this place for a morning coffee-excellent choice. Lots of people, dogs allowed in front patio area, good muffins and quiches, and the best latte I've ever had. Just wish I could take this spot home with me, or at least the barista!

“It's very simple.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Here's the thing - when you walk into Cafe Dawn, their primary concern is getting you through that line and drinking your delish coffee and nibbling on a sweet treat as efficiently and quickly as possible. On top of that you get witty banter, smiles, and anything you need to know about enjoying this area. What more could you want out of a locally-owned coffee shop?
