The Quad Cities is home to some very good coffee shops. Here is a list of the best coffee shops located around the Quad Cities.
1. Milltown Coffee
3800 River Dr #2, Moline, IL 61265
Milltown is located right along the Mississippi River. They have the best gluten free chocolate chip cookies and fancy coffees. Their iced coffee and teas are also very good. I love coming here to study because the environment here is so relaxing.Read More

Moline mayoral candidate Stephanie Acri continued campaigning Friday, meeting with people for a coffee chat.
Acri, who is Moline’s current Alderman At-Large, held the event at Milltown Coffee in Moline. She will be a write-in candidate in the primary election on February 28th. Acri says she’s holding the meetings to figure out the best path for the city’s future.
“I need feedback from the community of what their concerns are, what are the priorities of the residents so that I can have a better understanding of where their tax dollars should be invested,” said Acri…Read More

MOLINE — Mayoral candidate Ald. Stephanie Acri, At-Large, has been endorsed by Ald. Mike Wendt, 3rd Ward.
On Thursday, Ald. Acri issued a release announcing Ald. Wendt’s endorsement. In the release, Ald. Wendt states Ald. Acri “consistently asks the probing questions and works tirelessly to find solutions” in the best interest of Moline residents.
“She leads by example, and I am excited about the opportunity to endorse her to become our next mayor,” he states.
Ald. Acri is one of five candidates challenging Mayor Scott Raes in the April 4 election. The others are Kirk Witherspoon, Jody Fear, Frederick Carman and Deborah Ryckeghem. All five challengers are write-in candidates.
Ald. Acri had filed petitions of candidacy, but Mayor Raes successfully objected to them because the pages were not numbered as required by state law. The same day the city’s electoral board ruled the petitions invalid, Ald. Acri and the others filed their write-in candidacy papers.
The number of candidates means there will be a Feb. 28 mayoral primary, with the top two candidates moving on to the April 4 election.
Ald. Acri also has announced a series of “Coffee Chats” during the next seven weeks at Milltown Coffee, 3800 River Drive, Moline, with the first at 7-8:30 a.m. today. Ald. Wendt is expected to join her.Read More

Ever wonder what there is to do in the Quad Cities area during the fall? As summer fades into fall, the leaves begin to change and we are surrounded by the lovely orange and red leaves everywhere. Fall is personally my favorite season. I love how the weather isn’t too hot, but it isn’t too cold. I love when the leaves fall off the trees and crunch beneath my feet. I love everything about pumpkin patches, apple farms, and all things Fall. If you are like myself and love Fall, here is a list of places you need to check out.Read More

When it comes to local Quad City businesses, getting Augustana students to leave the “bubble” and try new places is one of the biggest challenges local business owners and government leaders are facing.
However, one Moline coffee shop seems have figured out the art of attracting students as both regular customers and satisfied employees….Read More

To begin, a confession: I have said some uncharitable things about the Quad Cities. Very uncharitable. And now, I stand here — hat in hand and kicking my heels — ready to admit that I was wrong. There’s something special happening down the Mississippi River in Iowa (and Illinois).
The Quad Cities — made up of Davenport and Bettendorf (Iowa) and Rock Island and Moline (Illinois), all stacked along opposite banks of the Mississippi River — are my husband’s hometown(s). He was born in Rock Island and grew up in Davenport before decamping to Minneapolis in his early 20s. Not too long thereafter, Illinois/Iowa boy met Minnesota girl and, together, we’ve been making a few trips back to the QC every year for the past 14 years. That should have been plenty of time for me to loosen up and give it a chance. But I dug in my heels for the better part of a decade, writing it off as a wasteland of big box stores and chain restaurants.
The eventual undoing of my unfounded prejudice started with food. It began with the discovery of gargantuan chocolate chip shakes at Whitey’s Ice Cream (do you know how difficult it is to get chocolate chip shakes in this day and age?). Then it progressed to a predilection for Harris Pizza (always cut into long strips and topped with their ultra-crumbly sausage) and moved on to a mania for the sinus-clearing wonder of Boetje’s Mustard. It really leveled up when I chose a side in the regional potato chip rivalry (I am a Sterzing’s girl, not Kitchen Cooked). Inside these allegiances, a little seed of love for the Quad Cities started to germinate…
This brand-spanking-new coffee shop (Instagrammable to the max) is a bit of a drive out east from downtown Moline. But if you’re serious about your coffee, it’s worth a trip. They serve all the espresso classics, but make no mistake — this is a third wave coffee house, exclusively brewing with beans from Peoria, Illinois-based Thirty-Thirty Coffee and offering press, Chemex or pour-over cups….Read More
