Under new management since 2012, this gem has been a Drake neighborhood institution for decades. Known for its eclectic mix of pub grub, including award-winning nachos, University Library Café also has 40 beers on tap, including hard-to-find craft beers and Iowa microbrews. Customer-acclaimed breakfast offerings include Midwestern bacon-and-eggs staples like the Texas Melt — bacon, eggs and cheese on Texas toast served with a side of country potatoes.
