Most everyone who haunts Iowa City, be it on a game day or otherwise, is probably familiar with Lou Henri’s at 630 Iowa Avenue. To begin with, they make great coffee, which isn’t as unusual an achievement today as it used to be. But good coffee is a solid foundation upon which to build a successful day. Second, they know how to cook breakfast. Eggs done any way you want, french toast properly battered, and great service as well. I think that the pictures of the boxing girls on the walls are perhaps a reminder that you better tip well. And I did.
Lou Henri is just east of the main businses district by about four blocks. There is usually lots of parking on adjacent streets.
