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!

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?

First I have to say this was a welcome open door during our visit to Salida where half the town seemed to be closed (April 2012). Then we were welcomed by friendliness, best coffee-drink prices I've seen in Colorado, especially for organic or free trade coffee and had the most delicious quiche for an afternoon snack ($4.ea). We loved that they offered organic and gluten free items and that their baked goods were homemade, so to speak. THIS WAS THE BEST GLUTEN FREE PIE CRUST we've ever had anywhere in the world, and we've been eating gluten free and cooking gluten free for 19 years!
A nice place to relax, meet someone for a light snack, coffee or wine, and feel most welcome.
