Barking Dog Changes Announcement

We are going through some changes. We will be moving from our home at 18133 Sonoma Hwy to a newly built café at 981 Broadway (right across the street from Sonoma Valley High School).

In this move we will be relocating our baking and roasting operations. This will take us some time not only to move and re setup but also to get final approval from the County of Sonoma and the City to restart our operations.  

As a part of this move, we are adding a new side to our story.


Introducing: Småstad Coffee Roasters

Småstad translates to small town in Swedish with this new name we want to revive the original mythos of the Barking Dog Roasters: a community focused coffee shop producing the best coffee we can. Providing a safe and open space for people to meet up and hang out with a slight Swedish twist. Småstad Coffee will have the same delicious coffee, fresh baked treats, and good Sonoma hospitality in a beautiful new space.


But rest assured Barking Dog Roasters as you know it is not going away. Barking Dog will still be available online through our web shop:, through our wholesale partners, and available at the new café.

Thank you for your support over the last nearly 29 years. We have loved every minute of this experience and will always cherish the memories made here. We want to thank all of our loyal customers, the employees past and present, as well as the community for their continued support.

Our last day open in Boyes Hot Springs will be on Monday, July 1st so come on by and say “Hi”, grab a coffee and/or a bag and we hope to see you at our new home soon.

Our last roasting day will be Monday, July 1st so if you need any coffee please order online before then. We will offering free local delivery on Tuesday to anyone in the valley. Unfortunately, we are unsure of how long it will take to get our final approval from the county of Sonoma and the City after moving our equipment to the new location for us to be up and running. But we look forward to seeing you soon!
