Community. Conversation. Abilities Awareness.

Uptown Bill’s is a coffee house, performance venue, and a community meeting place.

We offer great organic coffee roasted by Cafe del Sol and more than 20 varieties of tea (including several from Peet’s) We also have the best selection of soda pop in Iowa City.

How about a sandwich? We have several on our menu. Or an ice cream sundae or shake? We serve those over the old Pearson’s ice cream counter.
