On the banks of the Iowa River, this repurposed power house makes a unique and relaxing eatery. The main dining area is floor to cathedral ceiling windows overlooking the Iowa River. Machinery from the building’s former days hang overhead and decorate the walls. The staff is pleasant, friendly, and speedy. Dress is casual, the prices are very reasonable, and the portions are perfect. Make sure to get a table by the window for river viewing and take a stroll afterwards to the bridge over the dam for excellent photo ops and a little bit of history.
This is a fantastic reuben sandwich. There is an option of corned beef or turkey, I chose the corned beef. The swiss cheese is a nice addition to the full flavors of the sandwich on marbled rye. I was very happy with my selection. If I’m ever passing through Iowa City again, I’m definitely going back.

A lovely breakfast stop full of sunlight. You walk up rustic steps into a small restaurant full of sleek black tables and a deli counter displaying baked goods. Order at the counter, and friendly waitstaff brings your food to your table.
Baja Omelette, Grits, Coffee
If you want greasy diner food, this is not the place for you. Refuel Cafe takes traditional breakfast food to the next level. With fillings like avocado and bacon, the Baja Omelette was a creative break from the standard omelette. The grits were addictive, creamy, and buttery. Delicious good-quality coffee.
