“Very unique”
Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere and great soup is what makes Smokey Row one of a kind. The setting is totally unique and provides for a experience that's hard to duplicate.

Spacious. Has WiFi. Comfortable and relaxing. I've been there for just coffee, and for coffee and WiFi.

“My favorite coffee shop!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Smokey Row has 4 locations: in Pella, Oskaloosa, Pleasantville and Des Moines, Iowa. I frequent the Oskaloosa location. It is one of my favorite places in town. I think their cheeseburger chowder is to die for, but they have other good soups and sandwiches as well as pastries, ice cream and coffee. It's a fun place to hang out and visit with my friends. On occasions, they have live entertainment, as well. If you are visiting Oskaloosa, you must take the time for a beverage at Smokey Row. The atmosphere is fun with many antique signs throughout the historic downtown location.

“So-So Smokey Row”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

The coffee at Smokey Row is fine; the hot tea is abysmal. "That's what you get when you don't train teenagers correctly," said my sister. The food is okay--allegedly it arrives frozen and is then reheated. The decor is a trove of artifacts from the blocks of stores that were razed to build the mall. It's loud and noisy, so it's difficult to hear lunch companions. We would rather have had the original Rivola movie theater renovated and restored than see its marquee at Smokey Row.
