This is a great place with quality coffee and great treats. I don't understand why people drop money at Starbucks when they have a much better local alternative here.

I always like to visit local coffee shops when traveling. This one doesn't disappoint. Great location adjacent to campus and across from the Hanover Inn. Good coffee and tea and a nice place to relax for a bit.

I can always rely on the Dirt Cowboy Cafe for a welcoming atmosphere for meetings and work. I often come here to meet friends or professors. There are many tables available including a window bar. I recommend this location for work, meetings, dates, and a delicious coffee.

This place is for the coffee lover: cone filter brewed by cup, house-made chai, good espresso drinks and fresh pressed juices

Service is fast, prices are cheap, people are nice and the location is great when visiting Hanover for a day trip. Great selection of coffees and teas, but also very nice desserts. The interiors are also very nicely decorated, so it is a very good place to stop for a short break when walking around Dartmouth College and Hanover.

This is the place to go for great coffee and baked goods. Skip the chain shops in Hanover and enjoy a real local coffee shop with far superior food and drinks. The smoothies are excellent too.

The Dirt cowboy cafe is the coffee place with the spirit of Hanover. The only disappointing fact is they close to early, we can't drink a coffee after an evening event or walk.

Thank Marc B
