For nine years, Greg and Francie Wild have provided Dove Creek residents, and visitors, with outstanding coffees, breakfasts, lunches, breads, yogurt and cakes. Their current location, next to Frosty’s Liquors, is the third incarnation of Wild Coffee; the third time being the true charm for this charming couple. While there is seating outside, the interior is cozy with the walls lined with paintings or photographs from local artists. The bread, yogurt, croissants and cakes are made daily; orders are cooked up fresh and quickly; nothing sits under a heat lamp.
Wild Coffee’s lunch specialty is the Panini; meats, cheeses, vegetables and condiments layered between four, not two, but four slices of homemade bread; perfectly browned and served with two little cookies for dessert. Depending on your appetite, you might just have a Panini for snack later on. Names of the sandwiches all relate to areas in and around Dove Creek; you can also order a “Choose Your Own” (cold or Panini style) to create your own grand concoction. Orders can be made to eat in or take out, in case you need a packed lunch for your hiking, climbing or ATVing adventure. By the way, if you’re addicted to lemon bars, like myself, Francie makes ones to simply die for…sweet, tart and so lemony. They are an extremely popular item at Wild Coffee.
Greg and Francie will do catering for any special event; breakfast or lunch orders can also be called in and ready for pickup, often a choice for many staff members at San Juan Hospital. The atmosphere is relaxing; owners are the friendliest of folks; food is simple and delicious. When you dine in at, or take out from, Wild Coffee, you have hit the trifecta!
