Ryann Hubbart

Nice cafe to get some homework done in, with a super friendly staff, all within my favorite book store

Sarah Urban

First coffee shop I've been to in years that didn't have a single sugar free syrup. The service was good, but the lack of sugar free syrups was disappointing.

Scott Olson

Live up to their reputation. A great place to relax, get some work done, discover something new. My favorite bookstore anywhere, and favorite coffee shop in Iowa City.

My favorite coffee in town. Staff is very nice.

It's an amazing bookstore with a good selection of artisan coffee. Beware of all the writers and a "nerdy" vibe inside)

A pleasant bookstore coffeeshop serving Stumptown coffee. The food is marginal quality but they have a few good beers to choose from.

Nice little cafe with a comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff. Wish they would have had at least one sugar free syrup though. ...dietary restrictions.

Nice laid back atmosphere. A good time to meditate with your cortado.

John D. Freyer

Where else can you sit & read in the cafe where almost every novel written in the last 30 years was written, read by the author or written about by some new poet, critic, PhD or fictionista..... Yes please Mr Macchiato!

I cannot recommended Prairie Lights enough. I have done the vast majority of writing for my graduate work here. It is a great environment for writing, reading, or having a tea or coffee. The Wi-Fi is really stable, but not super fast here. I think it's the perfect speed for writing. You can look up and read anything, but it's too slow for distracting videos and media to be watched consistently. Best cortados in Iowa City. Great selection of teas.
