Iowa City may actually be more famous overseas for its Writers Workshop and the Prairie Lights Bookstore than the Hawkeyes. I know that is hard to believe, but it is true. Making the awesome selection of books even more interesting is the fact that there is a very nice cafe on the second floor, called “Times Club.” As expected of a cafe in a bookstore it is well lit, with books and magazines lining the walls. Every time I’ve been there it is busy. The first time I ordered a latte I had too much syrup to tell just how good the latte really was. It is hard to judge how will a barista can pull a shot if you add syrup. So, the next time I visited I ordered it straight up with just nonfat milk. I have to tell you, it was very well made, it came in a nice fat mug and the flavor was fantastic. I don’t know where they get their beans or if they roast them themselves, but this particular cup was great. I will buy some of their beans the next time I visit and see if I can get more information on their roaster.
