A hot spot in Pella since it opened, this trendy coffee shop reminds you more of the big city than the small town. It's a very comfortable space with exposed brick, booths and tables for various sized groups, and some interesting antique signs and marketing from years gone by. Stop by, grab a warm drink, and enjoy it.

We took the family out during the Christmas holiday and found this restaurant to be fun and tasty. We enjoyed the eggnog shake the best!

Love the nonfat Carmel latte. Ground coffee a bit on acidic side. Good food as well. Great vibe and place to hang.

Spending the day in Pella. Found this on a walk around the square. Rehabbed building, love the old wood floors and exposed brick. Ordered a delicious vanilla soy chai , but gazed longingly at the biscuits and gravy that most of the costumers ordered. They seem to have a pretty expansive breakfast and lunch menu, which I may come back... More

Stopped for breakfast. Nice staff. French vanilla cappuccino was delicious and the sausage gravy and biscuits were heavenly. Will be back

Very nice café that seemed popular among teenagers giving it a good atmosphere. Modern with a European touch.

A cousin and I spent over an hour with two lattes and conversation. An excellent locale for both. I was pleased that Smoky Row continues the quality that I remember from previous visits. Last one was five years ago.

Great coffee shop in a college town. Endless varieties of coffee and tasty bran muffins. Coffee cake was very good, too.

Upon entering Smokey Row you sense a feeling of comfort. The long seating area reminds you of an eatery from earlier and simpler days when people met at such locations for conversation and discussions. Mostly there are tables (some with checkerboards on them), but booths are also available. At the counter chalk drawings and sketches provide the basis of some... More
