Every great writer needs inspiration. Poindexter fuels your muse with author-approved décor and plenty of caffeinated beverages. Recharge with tasty café offerings, including coffee, pastries and more — perfect for hungry travelers and Hawkeyes hitting the books.

A wall covered in more than 180,000 No. 2 pencils (a nod to the Iowa Writers’ Workshop) sets the scene for this on-point hangout. And be sure to check out the Iowa-centric art from RAYGUN, a local favorite and self-proclaimed “greatest store in the universe”.
