Gourmet Foods & Coffee We are a small town specialty food store featuring Iowa and Midwest foods including meat, dairy, wine, beer and coffee. We have a large selection of locally processed meats including fresh steaks, pork chops, ready to eat meat sticks, 6 styles of bacon. We are known for carrying 32 flavors of brats during the spring and fall seasons. Also has a nice selection of gourmet dips and sauces to accompany our products. Don't want to cook, we've got you covered lunch or dinner! Try one our fresh made sandwiches pilled with meat. Or check out our nice selection of homemade casseroles and meals where all you have to do is the final step of cooking via oven/microwave/grill. Our coffee and specialty espresso drinks use Iowa roasted beans ground fresh to order. We use local non-homogenized milk with almond milk as an option. From a nice cup of black coffee or a double shot cappuccino we've got your caffeine fix. We also do cold brew!
