Iowa City, Iowa: Hamburg Inn: Booths of Reagan and Clinton

A little beanery that's been visited by two ex-Presidents: Ronald Reagan in 1992, Bill Clinton in 2003. Their booths, only two tables apart, are marked by plaques and plastered with photos and mementoes. Reagan ate apple pie and meatloaf, in that order.
