I walked in and asked for a single dirt cowboy - and requested that he be at least 6ft tall. W/O missing a beat the barista turned to her co-worker and said, "You're about six feet tall, right?" HAHAHAH Awesome sense of humor and FANTASTIC...More

Service was fast and friendly. Coffee was excellent as was the hot chocolate. We ordered quiche Lorraine and mushroom quiche and both were delicious. Nice place

That drinks are lovely and fairly priced. They also have some nice pastries but you can’t really get “real food” here. Fast service and great location in Hanover

Above-average coffee; bland food; poor service. Dirt Cowboy's biggest plus is its location, but Market Table, Umpleby's, and Starbucks are all better options.More

Met a couple of friends here. Excellent drinks (lots of options!) and friendly service, but don’t count on great seating. We did get a table that barely fit where it was, and then moved to another table that worked out better.

It was hard to get in the door of this one on Saturday morning. Delicious coffee and what looked and smelled like delicous quiche.

Great place to grab a good latte or tea with some pastry. Tables in the back of the place make it a quiet place to sit and chat with a friend. It's nice to support a local place rather than a big coffee chain.

My husband had a work trip in Hanover and stayed in a hotel adjacent to Dirt Cowboy, so it was his go-to coffee place. He brought home some of the beans and we love the quality and flavor of the beans so much we order...More

The make the coffee one cup at a time and it is very good. We also had a spinach croissant and a bear claw, neither of which were outstanding.

The coffees are terrific, and each one is made individually and on the spot. The pastries are nice as well. Full sandwiches available for a big appetite. Seating is also available but limited. Great service and you can get anything in this quaint coffee shop...More
