Kaffee 1858 & Public House, a restaurant and full service coffee shop, is located on the Great River Road in Downtown Guttenberg, Iowa.  The Kaffee 1858 is directly across from the mighty Mississippi River.  It is a restaurant that offers traditional coffee drinks and great brew!  We brew local, organic, artisan-roasted Kickapoo coffee from nearby Viroqua, Wisconsin, and chai, teas, lattes, and smoothies.


Kaffee 1858 offers local beef, custom ground by Wholesale Meats & Processing in Dyersville, Iowa.  All of our burgers are hand-pattied.  We also offer pressed sandwiches, flatbread pizzas, salads, desserts and made from scratch soups.  On the weekends, an expanded brunch menu is available.


Kaffee 1858 prides itself in offering something for everyone, whether you want to stop in for some craft beer or wine, a filling lunch, a quick bite, or to satisfy that sweet-tooth!  Stop by and relax with a cup of coffee and enjoy a recent issue of "The New Yorker" or a local newspaper.

Because all of our food is handcrafted, we can accommodate guests with special dietary needs.  

Kaffee 1858 prides itself in offering something for everyone. We are the second oldest brick building in town, but want to be first to show you a wonderful Guttenberg experience!  Our goal is that everyone walks away satisfied.
