We have been going since CD opened. My wife is the coffee drinker and has been a near daily customer since then. We were about to leave on a trip the other day and something went very wrong at CD and the worst that could happened, happened and food poisoning killed our trip. Obviously the absence of James translates to the absence of oversight which is taking a toll. This is the last place I would have expected anyone to get food poisoning.
We live only a short distance from Cattle Dog and for the life of us we can't figure out how this wonderful coffee shop slipped out of our memories (OK we're old..). After wracking our worn out brains for a new place to go, a friend mentioned CD. We went for coffee, ended up with tow of their delicious sandwiches and gourmet coffees. The menu is very limited but don't let that stop you from going. The establishment is VERY clean and well appointed. You can sit and talk or read your paper without being rushed. The day we went my wife met six people from her Maryland, her home state. Also the selection of coffees is amazing. Just found out from another review that CD will ship coffee anywhere for you. I rate this place 5 stars.
Something you may not realize about Cattle Dog is that they offer personalized coffee roasting services, delivered fresh to your house, anywhere in the United States, via 2-day express shipping.
The service is wonderful; I've ordered my beans from him for making espresso at home for a while, and for some weeks I fell short and was unable to order coffee. Finally, when I was able to order coffee, James Cook even remembered my very specific roasting instructions. Excellent customer service, excellent beans. I wholly recommend them over and above even the big online roasters.
I was at the Cattledogs Coffee Shop, last Sunday Morning with friends, and I found it Lovely, Very Clean, Very organized, Very tastefull decor.. and the workers were very friendly, and accomadating, and my Chai Tea, was wonderful, I was very impressed...
I am taking a friend there tomorrow for and early Lunch, to try out there Lunch Menu...I would give it 4 Stars and after Lunch tomorrow, I believe it will be a 5 Star, and a place that we will frequent often...
I and several ladies had lunch at the Cattle Dog Cafe last week. The food was good, albeit a bit pricey. The downside: lunch served on paper plates w/plastic utensils, one lady asked for a refill of iced tea, and it was denied, unless she paid for it, and water was reluctantly given, without ice. We won't go back
I have the great pleasure of learning of this gem of a place during my visit to Florida several months ago. I found Jim and his wife to be exceptionally friendly and kind. The food was delicious and of course the coffee supreme. I myself also enjoy Chai Tea and YES they made it perfectly. I use my Cattle Dog mug I bought on my last day there, every day. I look forward to returning to Florida and right back to Cattle Dog!
For a truly enjoyable experience take the time to stop in and enjoy a great cup of coffee in a wonderful little coffee shop. Where customers truly become friends with the owner James and Heather. But beware this place is truly addicting I have not been able to miss their coffee or conversation a single day for over 2 months.
while visiting from NH i had the pleasure of visiting this small, yet fabulous establishment....excellent coffee, large selection of beans/freshly ground, very personable owners, nice selection of nibbles, just an all-around GREAT place to grab a cuppa.
once word gets out about how fabulous this place is it will be time to expand and put in more tables to handle the overflow.....5 stars
