I get coffee here when I stay nearby. Good tasting coffee. The interior is a nice cozy coffee shop. People are friendly. I've had a muffin and breakfast burrito. Both good.

Hey there. Just an FYI, while the morning coffee experience here is happening, please don't miss out on a light lunch of their soups.
After the morning coffee klotchers abandon the place it quiets down and if you're looking for a comfortable place to enjoy a light lunch, you owe it to yourself to try Cafe Dawn.
The staff are all wonderful, smiling, helpful people, how can you not enjoy that ?
After you've enjoyed lunch you can then stroll around downtown and get a feel for just how cool this town is.
All the Best, Salida1048

It is always a pleasure to visit Cafe Dawn for coffee, hot chocolate or tea. The cookies, pastries, quiches and brioches are not bad either. Dawn and Philip run a great little place in Salida.

Cute place. The coffee is excellent food is good but not prepared on site. It is homemade but heated in the microwave. The pastries were also very good. We would stop again just for the coffee.

Everything a local coffee cafe should be. I stop there whenever I'm in Salida. The coffee is STRONG and delicious and she even offers Stevia rather than the toxic non-suger sweetners of Starbucks and other coffee cafes.

There's a nice selections of pastries and sandwiches as well and a wonderful posting board for local events.
