Review of Bongo Billy's Cafe - CLOSED

Bongo Billy's Cafe
Cuisines: Healthy
Description: Casual atmosphere, but very health conscious. A huge variety of coffee beans and blends, as well as teas. While in Buena Vista for a week and having tried others, this was the VERY BEST coffee t be had. I loved it. My wife loved the teas and the fresh baked goods, organic and wholesome, were incredible. While the appearance is one of a very casual cafe, it caters to the health conscious and active sorts. Can't recommend enough!!

After reading good reviews about Bongo Billy's, we stopped there for breakfast before heading to Leadville. What a mistake! There was only one kind of muffin, and a couple pieces of coffee cake. My sister in law ordered hot chocolate, and it took several minutes for it to be prepared. The staff was not friendly...no smiles, no good mornings, no thank you's. I can see going there if you want coffee and sit outside, but otherwise, go somewhere else for breakfast.

During our 10 day stay in the Buena Vista area, and being a Coffee junkie, I tried them all. Bongo Billy's has the best fresh brew I could find, and the price was surprising; roughly $2 for a large cup. They also have what seems to be a hundred different varieties of tea, for those who prefer that. This is a cafe, which happens to double as a coffee house, so they have fresh baked desserts like Almond Cocunut or Wildberry Scones which are incredible! Many of their food items are organic and there seems to be a slant towards organic customers and those who watch their health. Bottom line though, for a quick affordable coffee fix in this area, stop by Bongo Billy's. It's on the south end of town along the east side of Hwy 24.
