Just Be. Be Still.

Located in Hiawatha, Iowa, nestled right up next to I-380 and Dental Implant and Oral Surgery Specialists of Iowa, our independently owned coffee shop overlooks a pond filled with wild geese. We have been serving the corridor since September, 2019, and in that time we have begun to settle into ourselves and truly realize our goals as a part of our community. 

Our mission is to serve the best brew and artisanal,  in-house products, which we achieve through partnering with other local small businesses- Rustic Hearth, Panda Marie, The Kettel House, That One Cupcake Place, Iowa Coffee Roasters, and Hansen’s Dairy. We get all of our raw food ingredients through New Pioneer Co-Op

Our shop has a few special perks that make it a bit different from other coffee spots. Our large windows allow us to look out over our little pond, and watch the seasons change. The sheer volume of light we get in our space is phenomenal, helping our indoor plants to bloom year round. Sunrise and sunset here is a magical time. The local geese gaggle are almost always on view, strutting around, being silly and majestic. A prominent feature of the shop is the fireplace, which is a treat in the midst of winter, surrounded by books and periodicals. Our children’s corner features a television, which almost always plays a selection from BBC Earth. It is filled with drawing tools, paper, learning games, books, and plenty of stools and benches. This corner is ideal for caregivers. 

We are proud to be offering coffee to our fellow eastern Iowans and more, and proud to be a women-run operation. We couldn’t do this without you! 

See you soon.


Wild Geese

By Mary Oliver

You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees

for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves.

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.

Meanwhile the world goes on.

Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain

are moving across the landscapes,

over the prairies and the deep trees,

the mountains and the rivers.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,

are heading home again.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

the world offers itself to your imagination,

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -

over and over announcing your place

in the family of things.
