go to Elly's for morning coffee or for lunch. It is a popular place for people in the downtown area to meet. The food and beverages are great and reasonable price-wise. There are many "healthy eating" menu items there. The service is quick and friendly! There is a fairly large seating area with nice views of the river. I have... More

You order at the counter at this small restaurant. They have fresh scones in the morning, which are yummy, and several different blends of coffee. Lovely, light-filled sitting area, as well as an outdoor patio that overlooks the Mississippi River. At lunch time, they have wonderful sandwiches. Staff is friendly, prices are good, food is great, and atmosphere wonderful.

Everything is premade. They don't cook their own chicken, make their own soups, they have frozen bread and buns. I also thought the lady running the front counter counter (where you point at the sandwich you want) was rude and condescending. The overpriced sandwich was edible, but disappointing.

Rooftop overlooking the Mississippi for coffee? In the sunshine? Perfect? Yes. And Elly is one of nature's gentle-women. As are her staff. A wonderful place to visit - we loved it. Where else would you get to chat Athenian politics with a barista about to start college? We loved all of Muscatine - it is a town of warmth and... More

This is a great place to eat lunch. Sandwiches are homemade. I especially love the soup - yum. Prices are great. In downtown Muscatine.
