Trying to remember the last time that I had a hot dog made me realise that it had been many years ago. So, heading to Coffee Dogs, all the excitement was for the hot dog.
The menu has hot dogs made from pork, beef and soya. The British Bulldog was really delicious. It was a British Cumberland pork sausage made from quality meat, served in a soft poppy seed roll. Hot dogs have to have the fried onions and the British Bulldog came with onions and mustard. A small amount of ketchup was also added to make it complete.
For seating, as Coffee Dogs is a kiosk it only has a few stools on the outside. It would be nice if they could have some indoor seating. The staff gave quick service and they seemed to do their best to keep the seating area clean and tidy.
Coffee Dogs does the intriguing frozen custard from Coney Island. It came in vanilla and chocolate varieties. The two flavours were given in one cup. The frozen custard was really creamy and individually they tasted great. However, the chocolate did overpower the vanilla but then chocolate normally does that anyway!
There were also Dum Dum Donutterie products on offer. Coffee Dogs only had the Zebra cronut. This was the first time that I was having a cronut and I am not too sure if I really liked them. The Zebra was layers of plain and chocolate croissant with chocolate buttercream and it had a dark chocolate topping. The difference between the donut and the cronut is that the cronut is baked rather than fried.
The Americano was a smooth coffee. The coffee was from Rainforest Alliance farms.
Coffee Dogs is a good stop off place just to grab a bite to eat. They also have hamburgers, fries and milkshakes.
