    This is the bar I spent most of college at. Tuesdays were $2 you call it but this was a solid hang-out any night of the week. Sit down with friends and close the place out. -- Aaron S via Foursquare

    Dudes, you can totally remove your coffee from the brew bar yourselves. Room is a personal choice. :) thanks for helping out your busy, beautiful, and caffeine anxiety plagued baristas. -- Kate Krohn via Foursquare

    "Best Breakfast in Iowa City". This is a fact, it's received this title through a population vote since the 90's. They serve all meals, and breakfast all day. All visiting Presidents have eaten here. -- John Foley via Foursquare
