The Barking Dog seriously makes the best coffee in Boulder County!! Use only locally roasted coffee (Silver Canyon). Got 3 (count em, 3!) alternative milk options. Everything is made with love and the baristas are super easy on the eyes 😉

We stopped for just a cup of coffee. Bringing in our own cup saved $.10. The friendly communal table greeted us and made us welcome. Definitely a great stop on way to Estes Park.

Had breakfast there on our way to Rocky Mountain National Park. Staff is excellent. Food served swiftly. The cafe is a 'real' place. Not like these boring corporate Starbucks-style places!
