Optimae Life Services

Welcome to the Coal Palace Café and Books. We are one of nine microbusinesses operated by Optimae LifeServices, a health care and human services company providing services for Iowans with mental illness and disabilities.

Optimae customers struggle to find employment opportunities, which is why the company opened its microbusinesses. The Coal Palace provides valued job roles for local Optimae customers, who work directly with a job coach. Job coaches equip them with the skills, support and confidence they need to be successful in their positions.

All of us at Coal Palace Café and Books hope you feel comfortable and appreciated while allowing us to serve you the best we can. We appreciate your business as well as your support and understanding of our mission. Come back soon and watch for our special selections on Facebook.

Caramel Chocolate Chip Brownies at Coal Palace Cafe and Books...YUMMY!
Wow! Best Caramel Chocolate Chip Brownies EVER!
So I just ate an incredible Caramel Pecan Brownie from Coal Palace Cafe and Books that knocked my socks off! It paired nicely with a hot cup of their Gingerbread latte.
Amazing Blueberry Pie! Just had a piece of the BEST blueberry pie I have ever had at the Coal Palace Cafe and Book Store! Still warm, flaky crust, juicy blueberries, topped with a dollop of whipped cream! I have judged pies at county fairs - this is definitely a blue ribbon pie.
We discovered this on our way out of town. It was the perfect place to get a cup of coffee for the road.
Totally awesomeness
