Love the nonfat Carmel latte. Ground coffee a bit on acidic side. Good food as well. Great vibe and place to hang.

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.

Stopped for breakfast. Nice staff. French vanilla cappuccino was delicious and the sausage gravy and biscuits were heavenly. Will be back

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

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
