122 2nd Street SE, Swisher, Iowa, 52338


Káva House & Café is located in downtown Swisher in a restored 1914 general store. Here at Kava we specialize in fine coffees, available by the cup or in bulk, in a full complement of flavors. If it’s just a plain cup of medium or dark roast coffee you’re looking for, we have that too. Kava is a full-service coffeeshop, serving a variety of drinks, including frappes, chai tea, fruit smoothies, latte’s and fountain sodas; along with old-fashioned malts and shakes.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all available at Kava. In the morning, whether you’re on-the-go or meeting friends for coffee, try one of our homemade pastries… fresh scones, cinnamon rolls, muffins, bread pudding, coffee cake and kolaches, or have a serving of hot breakfast casserole. Our lunch and dinner menu includes a variety of hearty hot and cold sandwiches and salads, as well as two homemade soups of the day. No meal is complete without a dessert from our pastry cabinet or a serving from our ice cream cooler which is filled with Wisconsin’s Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream. In addition to our full menu, we offer a dinner special every Saturday night.

When you stop in, check out our gift and card department. Find that special gift among the candles, jewelry, woolen goods, books and other unique items!
