Nothing fancy but always good. One of the best breakfast spots in Iowa City. Great shakes too! You may even get lucky and see a National politician!

Excellent food at reasonable price in a quirky setting near campus. Great for young and old. An original diner that has been around for decades.

A great historical landmark with great food. Iowa City people love their Hamburg Inn. Very small. Plan to wait in line, especially for breakfast.

Always a busy place. Great breakfast location! Service is awesome and worth the wait. Recommend the sweet potato pancakes and the omelettes.

This is a landmark in Iowa City. A place where you can find writers, politicians, presidencial candidates. The food is good for dinner food but it is the reason you should not miss this place.

Best breakfast ever!!! Need I say more? The Hawkeye Hog omelette is to die for and if you have room try a pie shake. Mmmmmmmm!!!

This is one of our stops when we are back in Iowa City. Everything is good. Be ready to wait a bit especially on Sunday mornings. Take the time, the home fries are worth it.

My wife, daughter and I visited this past Friday morning, around 8:15. They were not too busy. We were greeted and seated in no time at all. I do not visit nearly enough. I just do not think about it and get side tracked with my "go to" breakfast places. This visit was wonderful. We were seated right up front... More

A recent kitchen fire resulted in new wallpaper and a brighter look for this old favorite. Great diner food in a warm comfortable atmosphere. Good hamburgers, great breakfasts. Come during campaign season and who knows which political star you might bump into:-) I've eaten here for years and always enjoy it.
