The Family Table started as a root beer stand at least 65 years ago. No one knows for sure when it was opened. Many people say," It's just always been there." It was just a small building with picnic tables until 1972. And some say, a hundred years ago a family raised race horses on the land. In 1972 the existing building was built and it became Decorah's A&W.

Years later it went through different owners and during the process the A&W franchise was dropped and it was renamed the Family Table. In November of 1993 Scott and Stacey Gossling purchased the restaurant and are still the current owners. In the fall of 2003, the restaurant was completely remodeled and they put on an addition.

We are a third wave coffee bar & roaster featuring our own custom roasted coffee, pour overs, espresso-based drinks, loose leaf teas & Nitro Cold Brew Coffee on Tap! 

Our coffee is roasted right here in Decorah! 

470 million years ago an asteroid, as big as a city block, burst through the Earth’s atmosphere smashing into northeast Iowa leaving behind a crater that would later become Decorah, Iowa. 

Fast forward a few years to the year 2014.  Decorah was impacted by another blast as Impact Coffee burst into northeast Iowa. 

Local business owners, Jeff, and Anja Brown had been operating their custom frame shop, The Perfect Edge, for over 25 years, when they were struck with the idea of opening a coffee bar and roastery. With the help of many fantastic friends and family members the coffee bar now shares it’s space with The Perfect Edge, while the roaster has taken over their two-stall garage. 

Jeff and Anja hope their coffee bar and roaster will leave a lasting impact on the town of Decorah, just as the asteroid left it impacts 470 million years ago.

In 1968, Mabel paid tribute to the item that attracted overwhelming attention and renamed her restaurant "Mabe’s Pizza."  Over a short time, Mabe’s Pizza grew a reputation for delicious pizza cut into squares with made-from-scratch crust and sauce paired with sincere customer service.

Mabe’s Pizza has been in several locations around Decorah, in 1978 the restaurant moved to its current building at 110 East Water Street in downtown Decorah.  We invite you to join us...  See you soon!

The name "Sugar Bowl Ice Cream Company" comes from a business that once stood in downtown Decorah, just across the road on the other side of River Street, where the radio station stands today. The original Sugar Bowl was torn down in 1977, decades before the current building project even began.

Craig enjoyed the name and the idea for the current Sugar Bowl Ice Cream Company was born.

We offer different flavors like Zoreo, Cappuccino Break, Zanzibar Chocolate, Raspberry Rapsody, Espresso Oreo, Cotton Candy Twist, Munchie Madness, Heaps of Love, Old Fashioned Vanilla, Kitty Kitty Bang Bang, Banana Cream Pie, Yippee Skippee, Fat Elvis, Mint Avalanche, This Just Got Serious, Rainbow Sherbet, and many more.

To read more about the original building, and see pictures of it, come visit us downtown today! You can find parts of the original Sugar Bowl sign (including a blue sugar bowl) right inside our main entrance.
