I lived across the street from this place for three years and sadly only went there a handful of times, wish I had known how good this place was earlier on. This place is small and cute with fantastic coffee and huge breakfast burritos! I would recommend this place to anyone.

On our way from Mesa Verde to Telluride we passed the Pony Expresso, a little coffee shop in Dolores. We did a quick turnaround as we were in great need of tea and dessert--red velvet cupcake for my husband and decadent Carmelita for me. Amazingly, for this was a coffee shop after all, the tea was not too hot. Specialty... More

We hit the drive thru every morning on our way to work! Great coffee drinks, speedy service and amazing breakfast burritos. You can call in your order ahead of time and it's ready for pick up! Truly the locals go-to.

I have had a breakfast burrito here on my way through town just shortly after they opened for business, I don't remember when that was but it has been a couple of years now. The burrito was very good, it just seamed to be very expensive for a breakfast burrito. I have found more reasonably priced to-go foods else where,... More

I love this place - coffee is great and the sandwiches are fresh and healthy. They even offer fruited water while you wait for your order - breakfast is good too with different treats daily.

What a great way to kick off a chilly morning! Great coffee, and a wide choice of morning munchies to go with it. Great, friendly service. Appears to be a popular place for locals, and it's terrific for travelers. Great selection of coffee, from just the straight stuff to a wide variety of espresso, flavored and fluffed. (A Paint is...

My wife and I visited here on 9/18/16 for a muffin and coffee. Very friendly and excellent pumkin muffin. Noted on their menu board they offer many other items. Was pleased with the way they have fixed the place up.

Tried breakfast wrap and coffee and was impressed with the quality of the food. The Pony Express is a small restaurant with seating inside and outside as well as a drive-by window for ordering. Everything is made to order and generous servings. Local owner runs the place. Large cold and hot drinks made to order as well as homemade desserts.... More
