Quicky review: breakfast at Bluebird Diner in Iowa City

Simple breakfasts of eggs and bacon, pancakes and sausage, eggs benedict and hash browns at the Bluebird Diner. The restaurant is in what used to be a paint store.

The place has a very hipster feel, but most eating spots towards the north of downtown do. The coffee, the true test of any breakfast spot, was acceptable. (Give me greasy-spoon food, but don’t give me bad coffee is my rule.)

Bluebird has reasonable prices (we spent $25 before tax and tip) and the kid loved it.
