The River Dog Cafe is a small, locally owned and run spot. We had one of the specials of the day, a sandwich called "The Heather" that was chicken salad from heaven. Stop in and say hello, get something for lunch and a smoothie to go with it!

My husband and I came by for coffee before a hike. The employees were friendly and prompt and helped us in choosing a drink. The lattes we got were good and not so sweet that it was like drinking sugar water. I'd recommend this place for a casual chill place to go. Their wifi works too which is another bonus unlike so many chain places.

Unless you are going there to get a scone (very good) and a coffee, AND NOTHING ELSE, do not bother. Any prepared food takes a very long time, and the employees have open arguments with each other. Saw an employee last weekend just stand there to watch a customer clean up their own spilled coffee. there are 6 people behind the counter and usually only one working. Honeslty, the food is really good, but it is so spotty in terms of service and time, that you could actually stand there (as i did) for 30 min until they can make a bacon egg and cheese panini. then they way to tell you the story about how someone didn't show up for work or other problem with their life. get a muffin or a scone and get out of there. they are inept at preparing cooked to order items

I was really impressed with this place. Great coffee, friendly service all around, great breakfast panini with really fresh fruit. The wifi was great- strong and fast - so I was able work on computer and enjoy a nice atmosphere. Awesome place to kill some time.

A small store at the intersection of Highways 221 and 181 in a small strip mall. Look for it and you will not be disappointed. Their coffee is always good, some of the best in the area, and their scones are worth a special trip. They also serve a good, but limited breakfast and lunch.
