I went to school with Greg. He knows everything about LeClaire. As a child I used to buy penny candy from his mother. If you want to know a little history about LeClaire and riverboat captains this is the place to go. if you were raised in LeClaire ask Greg to show you the yearbooks. It truly is going back in time. Good coffee, tea, snacks, conversation, and a wonderful ambiance.
You can try Pelo's Sundries for your morning coffee and snacks. They are amazing in their work. Their food is fresh and healthy and their service staff is also very nice and welcoming.
Spent many years having coffee in Pelo's. Was a great spot to meet friends for coffee, soda and visit. Has turned into a private museum and coffee shop has been neglected. Sad!
We very much enjoyed are time talking to Gregg. He was very entertaining with many interesting stories. We will definitely stop in for tea, coffee and conversation again.
Looks like they are out of business. Came by after 8:00 am on Friday morning and all locked up. No hours posted. No sign of life.
Dollar coffees & great conversation. Learned a lot about the history of the area. Would never get anything done if we lived close enough to come in for morning coffee - we'd just spend all day chatting with the owner.
Great coffee. Great energy. Friendly conversation with the owner.
If you're in town you have to go here. It is quaint and interesting and very good. Wonderful energy. If you want to learn about the areas history the owner will fill ya in. The coffee was great too. Will definitely be back next time we pass through.
Dollar coffees and the owner is friendly. Provided interesting conversation on a variety of topics including the history of the area, the history of the shop (family owned for 73 years!). Would have stayed and chatted longer if we didn't have to get back on the road.
Friendliest little coffee shop I've ever been to. Books stacked on the floor and in corners. Old photos on the walls. Ray serving up coffee and doubling as a helpful tour guide. What more can you ask for.
Fun place with fun stuff
If you want WiFi and espresso, look elsewhere. If you want incredible conversation, decent brewed coffee, and an experience like none other, then stop on in. The owner here is one in a million and I hope to be back to speak with him again one day. His collection of antiques lines the walls, and there are a few real treasures. Ask for stories about some of the items, but don’t ask if any of it’s for sale. It’s not.
like a time capsule! such a cool environment and great coffee :)
Fantastic place for coffee in LeClaire.
Small coffee and book shop ran by the most amazing man ever. Great stories and tales from the owner. Don't get scared away. This place is worth it. This man is not in it for the money. Coffee only $1 and free refills.
