Has the road been hard on you, or do you just have to get away from that demanding significant other, or maybe she's in a good mood and you'd like to take her out for a treat? This is a comfortable pretty little home redone into a coffee house. Lots of goodies to choose from and pleasant staff to help... More

Lovely breakfast with obvious detail paid to presentation. Coffee was great and the price was a great value. Will definitely eat there on my way through next time!

Fresh, locally grown ingredients. The breakfast sandwich and Benny were superb. Sit inside or outside in the patio garden. Great owner and staff. Prices are inexpensive for the quality of food you get.

Title pretty much sums it up. My Granddad was a cowboy and he made REAL cowboy coffee...the stuff served here is gross. (although the previous morning I'd had The Best Americano Ever in Nelson at Oso Negro so I suppose my standards were set a bit too high). I have a pretty good appetite too but even I couldn't choke... More

The gem is off the highway so look out for it. It opens early with fresh baked goods, great coffee and excellent breakfasts. The service is speedy, the people pleasant and the food is very reasonable. I highly recommend it.

Being open so very early in the morning there is no doubt you will get the coffee you need to start your day.

While on a motorcycle tour of southern BC, dropped in to Cowboy Coffee for lunch. The coffee was great and we also had a sandwich. When we said it was to stay and we'd like to sit outside, the lady behind the counter gave us the coffee and she'd bring it out. She unwrapped the sandwiches, put them on a... More

Stretch your legs. Get a cup of coffee and stroll down the street. Just drip coffee...but it's pretty good. Got a medium and a large for around $5 c

Need an early cup of coffee and don't want to grab a gas station one? This is the place to go as they open at 4:30am. Tasty breakfast (usually order the plate with eggs, bacon and homefries). The coffee is priced a little high for specialty ones like lattes but about on par with the rest of Princeton.
