Charged Food & Brew

Charged Food & Brew is a full-service coffee shop equipped to help satisfy your caffeine cravings. Formerly known as Java City, in 2020 Briar Cliff University began a partnership with one of Sioux City’s favorite, local, organic coffee shops, StoneBru. Charged Food & Brew, proudly serving StoneBru coffee, allows Briar Cliff students the complete coffee shop experience, conveniently located in Heelan Hall’s Roth Atrium on campus. 


Our Charged Menu offers students everything from signature drinks to your non-coffee favorites like Red Bull, lavender lemonade, and specialty tea. Additionally, Charged food selection provides our students with a wide variety of options from local bakery cakes and muffins to yogurt parfaits, breakfast sandwiches, and fresh wraps.
