Our story…

Nervous Dog Coffee Bar opened our doors in September of 2006. Since our inception, Nervous Dog was different. Not just the same old chain in a different package, but truly set apart from the others. More than just an atmosphere to work, unwind or check out music and live events. More than the wide array of drinks hand-crafted by any of our expert baristas, using the finest coffees from local roasters and small growers, or the best locally baked pastries and freshly-sliced deli items.

Yes, it’s much more than that. So much that you voted us Best Of every year since we were just a pup. It’s truly a place where you can: Come, Sit, Stay.

We do not aspire to compete with the corporate giants – we are quite content to let them duke it out with the other high margin, fast food chains. We can coexist in peace :). We regard other independent shops as colleagues, not competitors – we all celebrate involvement in local schools, charities, businesses – our town, our community, our priority.

Our beans are custom-roasted twice per week… these have not aged while shipping from the West Coast. Freshest, ever.  Come into our shop and drink the freshest, smoothest cup of coffee since some crazy goat discovered it way back when, or take home a pound of beans – our selection is AMAZING, and we continually seek out the best of the best. We use the highest quality ingredients – Ghirardelli chocolate, Torani syrups, and organically grown and processed beans from the highest quality small plantations all over the world. We buy our baked goods from local, family-owned bakeries. And we’re commited to building relationships with everyone around us; a TON of educational, charitable, environmental, IMPORTANT local organizations, and other independently-owned businesses – we live here, too.

We’re part of your community.  And we’d love to know you better!


Come by Nervous Dog and enjoy the taste of the freshest, highest quality coffee and espressos in town... roasted locally, twice a week.

Sip a latte or mocha... Ghirardelli chocolate, Torani Italian flavors, or straight up premium espresso, cappuccino or macchiato- the old-fashioned way, crafted to your taste by our expert baristas.

Traditional cow, or try it with soy, almond, coconut milk, sugar free, decaf. Design your own- we're pretty flexible. Yeah, you can pick up your beans here, too.

Local pastries and desserts, savory, snacks; recklessly unrestricted- or gluten-free, kosher, vegan. In brief, 'mmm, food'.


Relax in the warm, friendly pub atmosphere with your date(s), your best friend, your fams, talk to random patrons, or just reflect. Cozy up to the sound of live music most weekend nights.

Enjoy the outdoor patio seating on warmer days; read the paper, a book, the label on your scarf. (Agreed, 'poly blend' sounds redundant; try not to overthink it.)

Chill out for a few. Work on that presentation, meet a colleague, pick up a game of Scrabble, stare at the wall and daydream, sip your coffee and enjoy the local artist of the month's work featured on our walls.

Meet your community. Or just watch that one guy do that one thing, and appreciate his confident sense of self. It's your place- just enjoy it.


Nestle into your favorite spot and enjoy fresh pastries from local bakeries, hot and creamy chocolate cocoa, all-natural fruit smoothies, or a piping hot Harney & Sons tea while you work or play.

Whatever- we're not your mom. But if you use the restroom, it wouldn't kill you to put the seat down when you're done.

Free WiFi, and it's FAST; we didn't actually type this until tomorrow, and it's already published. Power is readily available to keep that 47" laptop or cell phone going when the Energizer Bunny goes down for his nap. So stick around; you're part of the ambiance.

Food & Beverage

All-natural, traditional, unique, top quality; piping hot, iced/blended.

Vegan, omnivorous, kosher, GF, sweet, savory…

We carry ALL the best adjectives (except, perhaps- ‘concise’).


Live music schedule. Plus:

Art, vinyl/open mic/game nights, book clubs, contests, and more.

Good stuff. Check out what’s happening!
