We visited Barking Dog Roasters. Make sure you walk around. The place is under renovation. There is an area where you can smell the various types of coffee beans. The coffee is delicious. We also enjoyed some muffins and cinnamon rolls (they are huge). Will...More

We went for a Latte and Breakfast. My Latte was just right. I ordered the Green Chili Burrito, it was delicious and not spicy, until I got to the middle and it was ice cold. I guess they are not made fresh and had been...More

Stopped by during vacation, and was pleasantly surprised to find that this was a coffee shop. Their medium roast was amazing. Their lemon poppy muffin hit the spot. Highly recommend this coffee shop.

This is a coffee house making claims to be a BBQ joint. I am from out of town, and was fooled by the signs out front for BBQ. My tri-tip sandwich was not very good, and was in no way BBQ. I should have paid...More

Typical diner, very average food at reasonable prices. If looking for diners style food Sonoma has better options.

I do love their coffee. They roast their own beans and do a great job. But I swear that their sandwiches are the best in town. And I'm a sando lover. I really like the turkey sandwich with provolone cheese, lettuce & tomato with oil...More

Since 1995 (with a couple of bumps and grinds in the road) Barking Dog has been providing high quality, freshly roasted coffee products to the Sonoma Valley community. For almost 20 years Barking Dog has purchased only premium Arabica beans and has roasted them to perfection in-shop to ensure absolute freshness. Our Roastmaster has been roasting coffee for us for over 10 years, having learned from a master roaster on our premises with our Probat Roaster. We roast in small batches which, though less efficient than large batches, helps ensure that the release is perfectly timed to capture the flavor profile of the particular bean variety at its peak. By roasting just-in-time for bar service and shipments we guarantee freshness. In the meantime Barking Dog has become a central meeting place and event venue for locals and out-of-towners alike. Local entertainers find Barking Dog to be an ideal small-setting venue for weekend and occasional after hours shows. The atmosphere is invitingly funky, the people are friendly and service oriented, and the products are very, very good. I assure you that if you're looking for great coffee, you've found it. On the other hand, if you're looking for trendy, you won't find it here. If you're looking for gimmicks, or the latest technology, or the most exotic this or that, this is not the place. Barking Dog is about putting a fine edge on the basics. As we have put the better part of 20 years into this (with the help of some brilliant coffee savants), we believe we have mastered the art of the cup and of roasting coffee to perfection, brewing it just right and serving it with pleasure.
