This is always a favorite place for me to stop for coffee, baked goods and a cozy hang-out whether staying in Buena Vista or driving through. And the Brown Dog in Salida is just as good.

This is a very popular cafe, but I was disappointed a bit. It took forever for our burritos to get done and their breakfast menu selection was really limited. For a coffee shop, they really should have more options. I also really didn't like the burrito that I got. I was decently disappointed in this place.

Been coming here for a long time, 16 years or so. I always stop here when I'm in BV. Great coffee, excellent baked goods, relaxing atmosphere. Tasty sandwiches and burritos.

Got a latte and breakfast burrito to go and the latte was good but the burrito was terrible. It had obviously been sitting around a while because they put it in the microwave and when I took the wrapper off most of the tortilla was stuck to the wrapper and was soggy!

We always stop at this coffee shop when we are in Buena Vista. The coffee and baked goods have always been good and the service is consistently friendly.

We love visiting local coffee shops when we have the chance, and this place is just that! Our stop was quick, but our lattes were great and the piece of coffee cake that we got was very good!

Enjoyed coffee on the porch/patio. It's a good spot to stop on the way to enjoying the area of Buena Vista

Stopped in here for a few sandwiches while on a road trip. Everything tasted fresh was really good. We loved the quinoa salad and the bean salad. The minestrone soup was also very good. The prices are fair.

For a bakery cafe, there were not so many baked goods. I ordered iced tea and was disgruntled to find, after I left, that the tea was flavored. Easy to find right on the edge of town and plenty of free parking.

This is long, I'm sorry. I'm a coffee addict and this is an important review to me. I visited and loved Bongo Billy's for years, and this is of course the new "version" of Bongo Billy, complete with the same building and almost identical interior and food and staff, etc... I have no idea what happened, if it was a... More
