We have been here many times for breakfast or just coffee. This is a great coffee spot. This time we went at dinner time. Dinner is a bit pricey for what you get but the food is good. Ordered the apple and caramelized onions grilled...More

We ordered carry out on a visit to the university. The lunches were delicious and enjoyed by 5 of us during a working meeting.

Bustling woody feel with students and neighborhood all having good time. Go up to the counter to order and then served. Soup and sandwich place with healthy combinations. I always love the vegetarian chili.

In the UConn area, I regularly use DLC for a.m. breakfast meetings and coffee studying. Service is efficient, food is tasty, coffee is strong and refills are free. Only thing missing is local wifi

I’m thoroughly bewildered. The service and food at Dog Lane can vary wildly, but there is one constant: there is almost always a mistake in the order. In particular, our takeaway orders have had a problem EVERY time—and we get takeaway often. One of my...More

Went there only once and the two food items were both lousy to say the least. It is at a great location and many students "work" there. Have not gone there again.More

Hi Oriental_Lily, Thanks for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor. I can tell you that we are not in the business of creating lousy food, we wouldn't last long if we were. We purchase high quality food, as much from local vendors as...More
