Mark and I love a good coffee shop. A place where the people are as important as the food and beverages. This is spot on with Swallow Coffee House in Lake Mills, IA.
Tony and Kelly Gau are the owners of this sweet step back in time. Every detail has been hand picked. From the chandelier light globes above the coffee bar, to the railing near the front window, to the comfy chairs, and high top tables.
To open a restaurant in normal times is a feat. To open one in the middle of a pandemic is a miracle. Take a moment to step away from the stress of the streets and enter into the Swallow.
There is a super cute kids area with books, pint size seating, and table perfect for coloring and keeping Littles busy.
Step out of the cornfield and into the Swallow Coffee House. You’ll be glad you did!
My wife and I were passing through town on our way to visit relatives. I desperate need for coffee, my wife saw Swallow just a bit off our route. I never dreamed the detour would lead to such great hospitality, great atmosphere, great coffee for my wife, and hands down the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted. Who would have thought in such a short time Tony and Kelly would become lifelong friends. Great to meet you guys!
Awww, I am so glad you found Kelly and Tony. They are some of my favorite people. Thanks for taking the time to comment and let me know! Happy travels!
