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.

This places looks exactly like Java Joes Coffeeshop on 4th Street in Des Moines. It is an old retail shop with two big display windows looking out onto the street and a wood front door. It is a long building. Half way back is the order counter and brew center and kitchen. The coffee is just standard brew. The food... More

Jitterz is a really nice cafe, the service was super nice. They have a large variety of different drinks you could make. Also, they have board games and Internet! Very delicious!

The coffee was great but the best part of Jitterz is the atmosphere and the staff. You feel like you at home drinking coffee with friends. I highly recommend.

Stopped in here on a Sunday morning to grab a quick bite to eat. At first it appeared to be a coffee & pastry shop only however they do have a small breakfast menu that includes panini's, eggs, waffles. Very tasty and inexpensive. Appears that a lot of locals go there for the wi-fi

Nothing to write home about. Nothing wrong per say, but this would not be my first choice while visiting Dubuque (visiting in laws for Thanksgiving). We came in 30 minutes before closing and the staff asked us if we wanted to take it go and when we said no, reminded us that they closed in 30 minutes. (I'm wondering who... More

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!

I love this quaint coffee shop. The coffee is amazing. There is a huge variety. The pastries are homemade and fresh. There are gluten free options. My daughter was so excited. She said the gluten free muffin was delicious. They also have egg sandwiches. I had one and it was delicious. The shop is cozy to just read a newspaper... More
