Why Hawks Coffee Shop is a Must-Visit in Sergeant Bluff

In 2018, a Sergeant Bluff woman opened a new coffee shop, named after her beloved father-in-law. Since then, it's flourished into one of the area's best places not just for coffee, but for community, which was her dream all along. Here's what families should know about Hawks Coffee Shop.

Where is Hawks Coffee Shop

Hawks Coffee Shop is at 110 Gaul Drive in Sergeant Bluff, IA. There is ample free parking in the lot front of the shop, and there is a drive-through at Hawks Coffee Shop. Hawks Coffee Shop is right next to the Sergeant Bluff Recreation Complex, and I definitely recommend visiting them on the way to or from sporting events there. I recently had a kids' sporting event at the rec complex that I had to drop one of my kids off for an hour early, so I went to Hawks and was back way before time to start cheering for my kid and it was such a nice treat to carry around with me and sip on while he competed.

Drinks at Hawks Coffee Shop

As the name implies, Hawks has lots of great coffee! They sell a variety of hot and cold coffee options including cold brew, lattes, americanos, frappucinos, and a plain old cup of joe. Hawks also serves up a good variety of non-coffee drinks including chai and green tea, hot cocoa, Italian sodas, and smoothies. I was really impressed with the large number of flavor options (including lots of sugar-free flavor syrups) and I'm lactose intolerant, so I was happy to see they have several alternative milks including oat, coconut, almond, and soy.

I tried the "caramel apple butter latte" from their September '22 specials list, but with almond milk, and it was so good. Very flavorful and sweet without being cloying or tasting artificial. And I tried a little sip of my kids' hot cocoas and those were delicious too!

I tried some energy bites with mini M&Ms in them and they were very moisty and flavorful. I think my kids and I all wished I had bought more than one container for us to share!

Other Merchandise at Hawks Coffee Shop

Hawks Coffee Shop has a really cute selection of gifts and souvenirs. Some are coffee related, like mugs, but a lot was just general cute gifts like sweatshirts and decorative items. They also have a wine display with many options to buy.

Hawks Coffee Shop loves hosting events, and their huge variety of events really sets them apart. They have hosted events as varied as trivia night, yoga sessions, book and wine club, book and wine club, painting parties and other craft events for adults and kids! The cafe is kind of two connected large rooms, so it's easy to see how one of the rooms could easily be transformed into an event space with a lot of flexibility.

The Story of Loose Meat Sandwiches

There's nothing better in winter than some cozy comfort food. So, I'm excited to tell you all about Sioux City's signature dish, loose meat sandwiches, along with where to buy them and how to make your own! What is a loose meat sandwich? A loose meat sandwich is, at its core, a loose pile of flavorful ground beef, served on a hamburger bun. Many people refer to it as a tavern or tavern sandwich.  Exact seasoning blend varies by maker, but onion, horseradish, mustard powder, ketchup, pepper, and garlic are common, as is a pickle to top, and it should be loose, not in a patty, and fairly dry rather than saucy like a sloppy joe. History of the Loosemeat Sandwich The loose meat sandwich was created in Sioux City in about 1924, although there doesn't seem to be a clear historical record of who made it first. Miles Inn and Ye Olde Tavern were certainly selling it very early on accordingly to local legend, and it's likely the dish was invented at one or the other. Cho

the story of Sioux City Sarsaparilla

One of the most widely known "Sioux City" things actually isn't a Sioux City thing! If you've seen the movie The Big Lebowski, you may have caught this scene: And Sioux City Sarsaparilla is real (and it really is a good one!) Here's the full story on Sioux City Sarsaparilla: What is Sioux City Sarsaparilla? Sioux City Sarsaparilla is the signature drink from White Rock's Sioux City line . In 1973, White Rock president Albert Morgan wanted to start a western inspired line of classic American soft drinks, with a frontier feel. He chose Sioux City as his inspiration! Sioux City Sarsaparilla is known as "the Grandaddy of all root beers" and has a creamy taste somewhere between root beer and cream soda. And it's the most bought sarsaparilla in the US! Is Sioux City Sarsaparilla made in Sioux City? Nope. Sioux City Sarsaparilla is actually made in New York by White Rock Beverages ! The company actually started not too f
