The coffees are always special, and the lunch choices are great. Enjoy artwork by local artists while you dine.

Looking for an out of the ordinary experience in downtown Burlington? Look no further then Diggers! Take a step back in time...a blast from the past...enter a unique world of hand crafted coffees and sandwiches that will please any pallet and epicurean. Relax it is all very casual.

Love the food and atmosphere. The bread is fresh and organic for all of the sandwiches. The Thai lunch on Wednesdays is the best Thai food I've eaten!

Stopped in for coffee and breakfast. Loved the atmosphere and that we could avoid a chain restaurant/fast food while visiting Burlington. The breakfast sandwich was really great.

It's a coffee shop......a real one.....with wood floors that aren't level, coffee experts that sell wholesale beans to "the other coffee shops" you're buying coffee from. They have high end knowledge, high end service, they're prepared (which is rare for Southern Iowa---sorry---I was born and raised here and the service and preparedness of everything is average).
