Spending the day in Pella. Found this on a walk around the square. Rehabbed building, love the old wood floors and exposed brick. Ordered a delicious vanilla soy chai , but gazed longingly at the biscuits and gravy that most of the costumers ordered. They seem to have a pretty expansive breakfast and lunch menu, which I may come back... More

Good service and coffee make this a great place to hang out my husband and myself take our laptops with us and sit and enjoy. Also has good menu and good selection of food, soups are great and love the chicken ala king over biscuits. We love to go here.

Very nice café that seemed popular among teenagers giving it a good atmosphere. Modern with a European touch.

A cousin and I spent over an hour with two lattes and conversation. An excellent locale for both. I was pleased that Smoky Row continues the quality that I remember from previous visits. Last one was five years ago.

Great coffee shop in a college town. Endless varieties of coffee and tasty bran muffins. Coffee cake was very good, too.

Upon entering Smokey Row you sense a feeling of comfort. The long seating area reminds you of an eatery from earlier and simpler days when people met at such locations for conversation and discussions. Mostly there are tables (some with checkerboards on them), but booths are also available. At the counter chalk drawings and sketches provide the basis of some... More

Homemade pie, bars, huge cookies, soup bowls, sandwiches, fresh fruit smoothies, ice cream treats....all perfect to go along with mom's coffee or tea! The atmosphere is fun for all.

I always make time to stop here when visiting Pella. This place is like time stood still. Great atmosphere. An old fashioned soda fountain complete with stools & counter. The kids who work behind the counter are always friendly. My go to is the root beer float. They also have food here, but I can never get past the ice... More

Coffee shop, soda shop, sandwich shop all rolled up in one. The coffee was good, as were the sandwiches. Old style shakes with the stainless steel container, the person that had one said it was very good. The prices were extremely reasonable. Order at the counter and they deliver the food to you. Fun place to sit and visit over... More
