5 NEW Reasons to Visit College Hill | Head to The Hill | Cedar Falls Tourism

There are always good reasons to visit College Hill. This spring, we want to introduce you to five new reasons to visit: Greenhouse Kitchen, The Shakery Smoothie Bar, ICON Donuts & Sweetery, the UNI Bookstore and the OP on The Hill. These shops have either just opened, will open soon, are newly renovated or are under new ownership. 

If you’re new to the area, we should explain that College Hill is also known as The Hill, the area adjacent the University of Northern Iowa campus along College Street and 23rd and 22nd Streets in Cedar Falls. It’s a place to sip a cup of coffee, shop, grab a bite to eat and enjoy nightlife.

What's new?

The Shakery Smoothie Bar
2125 College Street  

The Shakery is the newest store on College Hill to open their doors, this week as a matter of fact! Located on the corner of 22nd and College Streets, they offer smoothie bowls, protein smoothies, sweet shakes, yogurt power bowls and more.

Greenhouse Kitchen
917 W. 23rd Street  

Greenhouse Kitchen opened in the middle of April and serves up healthy fast food options such as rice bowls, salads, wraps, soups and burritos using local produce.
