The Iris Cafe

Summa cum Latte

Iris Cafe

The Iris Café is a place that appeals to the senses: the warmth of a morning coffee, the sound of milk being steamed, the delightful colors of fresh fruit, salads, and juices. Yet the most highly developed sense at the café is the sense of community you feel when you walk through the door. This is a place where faculty and students run into each other, where conversations start, and new ideas are born.

Proudly brewing Frothy Monkey, the Iris Café is located on the ground floor of the Peabody Library, just a short distance from the Bridge and the Medical Center. The café takes the Vanderbilt Card.

Check the patio webcam to make sure your favorite outdoor table is available before you head over.
