Breakfast the way it should be (all day)

Full disclosure: we went twice in one day. Once for breakfast, once for lunch...except at the lunch stop we got breakfast again. That's what kind of place this is. Feels like you're in an Iowa institution, political memorabilia all over the walls. Especially in this election year, it's a safe bet... read more

My stop in Iowa is never complete without my visit here. From breakfast to dinner, I have never had a bad meal. But to be honest my all time favorite food here is; The pie shakes, pumpkin or apple or chocolate cream or.... Oh my, the list goes on and on. Best dessert ever!! Go grab one you'll be hooked...

Not only is the food terrible and overpriced, the server wrote my friends credit card info down and proceed to spend $2500.

This place is known for their breakfast items. We have ate here multiple times. It is always good. Typically very greasy foods but always taste very good. The coffee is always delicious. They make pie shakes and they are also very good

This place is an Iowa City institution serving comfort foods for breakfast, great omelettes, awesome pancakes. The food is very good if you're in the mood for a heavy breakfast. Coffee is decent. They have photos of every politician who has stopped by this historical place. My only complaint is that they need to expand and have more space between... More

The atmosphere is friendly, the waiters & waitresses are amazingly nice. Sometimes there is a wait for breakfast which can be painful. Parking is sometimes hard to find but other than that they have good food their smoothies are great

I have eaten at The Hamburg Inn on two occasions. Once for breakfast and once for dinner. I was uber-pleased, both times. The selection is broad. This place has that home-town, home-cooked atmosphere. And, the same can be said for the food. Weekends can be busy, so you might have a bit of a wait.
