Grey Dog Coffee
Posted by Neighbor on 12/04/2010
Grey Dog used to have the best shoestring hashed browns. I've never found them as delicious as they are here in all of the city. Usually breakfast is served with lumpy, mealy, "home fries." Unfortunately, they've swapped them for some frozen looking potato cubes. Bring back the old hashed browns!

Grey Dog is totally chaotic but that's whats great about it. They make good easy affordable food, efficiently and delightfully. The owner is not rude just busy, he has a full house all of the time because they are consistent with their product. Oh and have awesome smoothies.

I walked in the first time and the Grateful Dead was playing and the whole place was humming w/ lively energy. The folks working there were great and smiley. The seared ahi tuna salad was delicious and the coffee was smooth and rich. It was a place that I foresee spending a lot of time at- either with a group of friends or reading a book solo.

I went to Grey Dog Coffee twice after it opened in my neighborhood. The first time, I was seated under an air conditioner that dripped brackish water on me and on my food. The second time, there was no room in the dining room, so I was seated at a sad little counter, which was really a shelf, in a little vestibule on the way to the restrooms. When I asked to be moved, the person who seated me said I would have to speak to the owner. The owner turned out to be a scary, self-righteous narcissistic tyrant who said he would bag up my food to go. I told him that if that was my only option, I wanted a refund, so he handed me a handful of moist, crumpled singles and told me not to return to his restaurant. This was truly an unpleasant experience. It was an even bigger insult because this restaurant right around the corner from where I live.

I've never written a review for anything in my life, but my experience at Grey Dog this morning compelled me in the hopes of saving some of you the disappointment and frustration. The food was edible, the coffee was decent, and the woman behind the counter was cute...but that is where it ended. It's complete chaos in there for no reason. Hey, I have no issue with a seat/serve yourself format, but you have to plan the space and manage it correctly. For the inordinate number of too-cool-for-school, useless, slacker loafs they have meandering about yelling out customer names at the top of their lungs, they might as well just seat people like a normal restaurant and provide table service. Instead you get a giant line to the counter waiting to put in their orders, a bunch of confused customers wandering around looking for a fork, and some goofball staffers who look completely irritated that they actually have to "deal" with customers at all. All I wanted to do was get the hell out of there. But...hey, if you're into that, go for it.

Their drinks are across the board amazing. The hazelnut iced coffee is my drink of choice and if I could afford it, would get one every day. Their raspberry lemonade is also great (which fresh raspberry's in the drink). Always get the pesto chicken sandwich which is quite tasty. Friendly service but beware, this place gets crowded. It never stops me as the coffee is just that good.

From the moment I walked in every encounter with the wait staff made me feel unwelcome at this place, from the Batista who questioned my drink order with a scowl and an upturned nose to the guy who kept making customers move or feel like they had to leave so he could seat other customers who maybe bought an overpriced waffle and were therefore deemed more important. I get they want to make money, but give me a freakin break - you are a glorified coffee shop. Get over yourself!
