The Java House

With several different locations throughout Iowa City, The Java House was founded in by Tara Cronbaugh, who had developed a love for coffee houses (in particular, the ambience) while on a trip to visit her brother at the University of California Berkeley. She wanted to bring the independent coffee house to Iowa City, and she did in April 1994.
The Java House features a great ambiance and flavorful coffee, including organic choices. The unique ambiance at their coffee shops was inspired by Tara’s father, who surprised her with a collection of antique furniture before the opening of the Washington Street Store. 
The Java House is a great place to meet up with some friends, or to just relax with a great cup of coffee and a book.
