Stopping along the way on a road trip is always a good part of any adventure. The Moon Dog Café is one of the best places we have stopped. Delicious coffee, excellent treats, & friendly people. A place not to be missed.

We stopped here late afternoon for a drink. They didn't have a lot left as it was late, but that was ok. I had a really tasty scone and some iced tea. The service was fine and it's a very nice setting.
