I stopped in for breakfast and enjoyed my Chai Latte. I also had a hand made bacon egg and cheese sandwich. Way better than McDonald's. The atmosphere is laid back as this is a sit down and enjoy cafe, not a drive by cafe.

Jitterz advertises the "best cup of joe" in Dubuque. I've probably tried them all and it's hard to argue. Tanya's daily fresh-baked scones are also a hit with me. Be back? I go there almost every day.

Nothing fancy, but good coffee. Very busy with locals coming and going. Seems like a place for the more experienced guys too!
