In the cute town of Lyons on the way to Estes Park, this coffee shop and eatery was welcoming and easy to get to. Parking was open just a few stores away from the café. When you walk in you immediately feel warm and welcome. The menu continues the dog theme with "Water bowl" meaning beverages, with sizes ranging up to the large called "hound". The eatery menu is called "Dog bowl". I didn't eat there so I can't comment on the menu but it sure smelled good in there. I ordered a "hound" sized latte with mocha syrup - only 2 pumps - and it was delicious. It cost $5.15. The WiFi password also kept with the dog theme it's Goodboy****. I was also told by a nearby resident that their motto is "down, sit, stay". Haha. I'll definitely be back. Those who frequent the place appear to have a coffee punch card that the store alphabetically at the café. Eat in or take out on your way to Estes Park.

I've been stopping at this cute little cafe for the past few years. Love supporting the businesses in Lyons. There is parallel parking out front (on both sides of the street). It can be full but don't give up, you may find another spot around the corner. The cafe itself has a handful of tables including some retro Formica ones (my fave!). There are fresh made pastries, egg scrambled and loads of drink choices including local Sherpa chai. On this visit I went for the vegan burrito (made in house) and my friend went for a scramble which had tomatoes, spinach and feta cheese. If you drive through often there are punch cards which they store alphabetically in a little box on the counter. If you don't mind a day old pastry score one or two for just a dollar. The service is not as friendly as at other local businesses but I suspect I'll be back on my next ride through.

Quaint little joint. They've got sandwiches and serve breakfast all day long. I had the chicken salad sandwich although I don't remember what it was actually called. They've got a few two-person tables and a big table that seats eight, so it's kind of a shared seating. You could tell this is a place that locals go to. Food was good and fresh. The staff was friendly. The customer in front of me was a pretentious little prick. Can't blame the restaurant for that they were being polite to him as they should.

Mommy at the front was so super helpful and friendly which was warm and calming as my silky smooth decaf 2% latte.

My husband asked for a cafe au lait, after 10 minutes he asked where it was and the barista told him to fill his own coffee and he’d froth some milk on top for him. We ordered a scramble with veggies and it can out as 2 microwaved eggs with cold tomatoes and onions on the side. When we inquired they told us they didn’t have a skillet ( after the fact). Poor service and poor food.

Mommy at the front was so super helpful and friendly which was warm and calming as my silky smooth decaf 2% latte. The place is perfect for both locals and visitors like me. I had to try the red rocks scrambler and they mentioned the free wifi and Vegan options. Within 5 minutes I had my super healthy scramble with spinach,, feta cheese, and fresh tomatoes that have a flavor filling crunch. My only regret was not having enough room to try everything else the desert and pastry options are tempting and almost a curse for those like me who are on a very strict diet LOL. We all know there's a show out there that had a song that welcomed us with the words "where everyone knows your name " Isn't it nice to go to a place where "everyone learns your name"?

Great place to stop before heading to RMNP. Coffee, breakfast, and pastries are good. Rodriguez and his blue dog would be happy.

What a perfect and quaint little place to stop and get a great latte and perfect homemade pastry. This place was busy but not too busy to be the best baristas I’ve met, very personal service and everyone seemed like family.

My husband and I stoped here for lunch on Tuesday. This is a really cute dog themed cafe that has sandwiches, coffee, pastries and everything in between. The food on the menu have cute dog themed names. My husband and I both had sandwiches and they were very good! He had coffee which was good too! The decor is dog stuff and cute! If you are a dog lover, this place is for you!!

Coffee wasn't bad, but my boss and I ordered a sausage burrito and a scramble 45 mins ago and have yet to receive them. While we watch them hand over burrito after burrito to each to-go order that came in after us...now I'm told they are out of sausage burritos, I will have to have a vegetarian. No apologies, no offer for refund. Do not recommend.

Could be a very cool restaurant, but I sat for 10 minutes with no greeting, and though I'm not in any kind of a hurry, it's a bit of a turn off with a start like that. So I went ahead and left.

I was extremely disappointed with the service at this Cafe. My boss and I stopped by this morning for a quick bite and a coffee on the way to Estes. I ordered a premade sausage burrito, and she ordered a small scramble. We sat and waited for 30 mins, asked about the food, "it's still coming". All whole multiple customers have come in, ordered sausage burritos and left with them. 45 mins in and I am informed they are now out of sausage burritos, my only option is vegetarian. At this point we just want our food. 50 mins and our food is finally ready. The girls behind the counter did not acknowledge the wait at all, did not apologize, and offered nothing. I will not be stopping in again, but if you do, I would suggest ordering your food "to-go" since apparently those people get served first.

Nice place to get a take-away breakfast or sit if you can get one of the few tables. Nice people working. One of the few breakfast restaurants in Lyons. Food was yummy.

My boyfriend and I had a great hot chocolate, white chocolate latte, plus banana bread and pumpkin bread on a rainy afternoon. Cool vibe. Nice people. Free Wi-Fi. Great little hang out.

We are staying in Lyons for a couple of weeks. We enjoy coming here every morning for cappuccino and a breakfast bagel sandwich. Delicious and made from scratch. The muffins are delicious too. Goid local vibe. Friendly staff.

Food and atmosphere here is amazing. Got their iced coffee and it was delicious. My boyfriend and I each got bagel sandwiches and were thoroughly impressed (we come from NJ so we are bagel snobs). Prices were low relative to the quality of the food, no complaints there!

We happened upon this place on our way back down from Estes Park. Stopped in to get a coffee. The cinnamon rolls called out to me. Had them heated up and without question they are the best I've ever had! Also loved the Jazzy Java coffee. Very friendly staff! Lots of fun art featuring dogs.
