“Not impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here while passing through Cedar Rapids looking for good coffee & they do not have it. The food was average. A coffee house should have very good coffee; there's was bland & tasted like it had been sitting out for hours. One of the pots even had cold coffee in it, yuck. There was an older women at the counter that was very rude although the other staff seemed friendly. I wouldn't recommend this place.

“Yum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

Cute little coffee shop in downtown Cedar Rapids. A great place to grab a panini or smoothie with friends, a muffin after mass, basically if you are looking for a light meal in a nice cozy place this is your shop. Stop by if you get the chance.

“Can't go wrong with two pieces of pie!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

We went here just to get some dessert and coffee after dinner. I ordered the boston cream pie, which was really really good. The lady behind the counter apologized because the piece she had first cut had fallen apart a bit, so she gave me another piece on the house. I'm not the kind of person that would bother and what a way to make up for it! Ate the first 'ugly' piece, and the second piece went home with me.

This place is also a really nice size - they have tables to pick from or some nice large and comfy chairs. They provide a lot of local newspapers for reading and other magazines. Its a relaxing and quiet space that is perfect for grabbing coffee and reading a book.

“Good coffee, Good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

While in Cedar Rapids I stopped at the Blue Strawberry Coffee Co. for lunch. I ordered a grilled asparagus pannini. It was excellent, tender and juicy with no tough stalks. They have several menu items I had not tried before. The ambiance was nice too. I will be stopping there again even when just going through Cedar Rapids.
