27c South Street, Dorchester, DT1 1BY
Opening hours Mon - Fri 7-4, Sat 8-5 and Sun 9-4

Situated on the busy pedestrianised high street, at the Brewery Square end, our Dorchester Coffee Saloon is a gem. A grade 2 listed facade leads you into a delightful Saloon with our signature style and furnishings. With a mix of table seating and bar stool seating you can be sure of a comfortable experience, and of course exceptional coffee, of which we are renowned.

As with all our Saloons we are running a Nuova Simonelli Mythos grinder, so quality coffee is guaranteed from our experienced baristas. We also serve our home baked cakes and legendary savoury muffins, avocado on toast and a range of delicious things in-between.
And finally, for when the weather allows, we have a delightful outside courtyard. A surprisingly peaceful space to enjoy your drinks and food.

Our coffee

brewing great coffee is a skill. years of practice and training. we are very proud to be working with La Marzocco Italy who, in our opinion, manufacture the finest espresso machines. stabled with Nuova Simonelli Mythos and Mazzer e grinders we are to be taken very seriously. 

we are lucky enough to work with ORIGIN coffee. our coffee partners for over a decade we love their ethical approach and their dedication to roasting. roasting many tonnes of coffee for us each year their consistency is outstanding. we are a great TEAM.

remember though. the coffee’s only as good as the person making it. and we are the best. all of our baristas have been through our dedicated ‘brew room’ training facility and we won’t let em loose on you until we’re happy you’ll be happy. it’s all about everyone being happy.

Our food

in our Poole saloon kitchen we make all our own toasties for all of our saloons. it’s why they are so tasty. we use the finest sourdough breads and ingredients, and importantly we use and support local producers. This means we can trace all our ingredients and of course play our (small) part in keeping food miles down. 

the Baking Room.. for those of you that frequent our Canford Cliffs saloon you’ll probably have seen our little baking kitchen to the rear. run by the legendary Cheryl she just loves to bake and is responsible for the bakes and cakes you’ll see across our stores. the infamous vegan banana bread, savoury muffins, chocolate orange brownies, florentines.. she does ‘em all and is constantly developing new recipes keeping the Saloon out in front of the competition.

remember we’re a speciality coffee shop, not a cafe. the baristas are flat out brewing awesome coffee but they do have time to make our FAMOUS ripe avocado on sourdough with fresh lime, chilli flakes, sea salt and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.. if you haven’t tried it you should. today.
