The customer service is poor. They do demand a minimum purchase with VISA/Mastercard purchases, which is probably a violation of their merchant agreement. Like Katy0345, I did have an unsatisfactory experience there recently.

We went to the Black Dog for the first time during a Sunday Farmer's Market. I ordered the "Black Dog Chai" as the menu said it was "delicious" and I love Chai!

However, the Chai was horribly spicy! I couldn't even drink it because it

I went here on a quiet Saturday night and ordered a turkey sandwich - it wasn't anything to write home about or maybe I just chose a boring sandwich. Maybe this place is more for coffee and other things.

The ambiance was great though. I can see myself coming here and doing some work. It was quiet and there were a lot of tables... and the staff seemed friendly and knowledgeable...

The food is nice, the people are nice, the music is often great and the feel of friendship and freedom are pretty smashing in times dominated by super controled factory type food places. It doesn't try to be what it isn't, no false hipmania, no bourgeois heavyness either. Places like the Black Dog show that there could still be a life after all the George W. alined, a place full of the values that made us who we are.

And check the pizzas and the french limonade for loon sake !!!

The one star review below is hilarious although it clearly is not meant to be. Apparently, the freelance writer went to the Black Dog ?at least 2 times a week? despite the rude staff, bad artwork, flies, dirty tables, and sub-par coffee and food. The freelance writer also brought people who were previously unaware of this bad food and bad art. How magnanimous can one get! Call me a skeptic, but I find this narrative a wee bit difficult to believe. We have been to the Black Dog 100 times if we have been there once, and we have never encountered the conditions described. We are currently eating a Black Dog take out cheese pizza that is quite tasty thank you. The staff will never be confused with Patrick?s French Bakery, but you are not paying $2.50 for a scone are you? Does anyone going to a cafe in Lowertown really need to be patted on the head by the staff? The rough-around-the-edges aspect is part of the allure; it certainly appeals to our children, who prefer this to any other food establishment. And anyone claiming the art on display is bad shows only that they know nothing at all about art. The Black Dog does not need to be saved, unless it is from people like the freelance writer.

Pros: Art, ambience, food, child friendly

Cons: Saint Paul Law Enforcement will magically appear the moment your meter hits zero. Prepare accordingly.

"it certainly appeals to our children..."

Compelling.

Also, relax a bit. Your review of a restaurant was strangely focused on the review of another reviewer. You seem really angry and unfocused. Kids will do that to you. Try to get some sleep.

I love this spot! Its got great ambience, art pieces, photography and other wall art. The pizza's are fantastic. Stop by after a visit to The Zeitgist Theater or The Farmers Market. Sara Remke is a great owner and she is the person behind the GREAT music festival SUR SEINE. Stop by there and talk with her about it, she's wonderful.

Pros: Easy to visit, meet or listen to music

Cons: Isn't a chain, so we can have this spot in Mpls. !

Every third Saturday the Black Dog hosts local tango dancers. There's a half hour lesson, then a dance until 11:00. Friendly, fun, relaxed! The cover charge is only $3

Hey Black Dog good job on the new portabella sandwich and the salads. The eclectic wine list is quite refreshing. I was there a few nights ago and the place was swinging. It is so good to see people out and about in lowertown. Keep up the good happenings.

Although I live in the Nation's Capital, Washington DC, when every I visit St. Paul, a must stop every morning it the Black Dog Coffee & Wine Bar.

The staff and service are terrific, and the coffee....well, let's just say, it's a great way to start the day.

A day without Black Dog Coffee is like peanut-butter without jelly....toast without butter....Richard without Liz.....

I think you get the picture....enjoy.......mike
