Nothing about this place is outstanding. The food is edible, the prices are reasonable, the service is acceptable, the atmosphere is classic. It has a true diner feel.

I was in the Clive area and was quite hungry and was looking for something besides fast food and came upon the Cozy Cafe. It was quiet and slow inside and ended up having a very nice lunch. The service was very good and friendly. I had the BBQ pork sandwich with fries which were both very good and fresh.... More

We initially went to Cozy Cafe because of a Groupon we had purchased. The food is tasty and the service is fast and friendly. The value is well worth it. We often return even with out a Groupon especially for breakfast.

We have visited here multiple times because a new one showed up close to us last year. Breakfast is definitely the time to go, their breakfast is pretty good and just like everyone else's, except no waffles. The service is great in the mornings! We used to stop in for dinner now & then but stopped going back in July,... More

My mom and I have eaten at the Douglas Ave., Cozy Cafe a few times and were impressed with the food, service and price. Well don't go to the SE 14th and Army Post Road location. We went there because I wanted Prime Rib. After getting there and seeing the cost (up to $21.95 for a smallish portion) I decided... More

Wife and I usually go to IHOP after church, but decided to "Keep it local" and give this place a try. We went to the one near Army Post Road and SE 14th, they have 5 chains now I'm told. So not knowing what to expect when we walked in; we were warmed over by the friendliness of the hostess... More

In all my years of dining out, I believe my experience at this restaurant was the worse I have ever encountered. We had a group of 14 people that were planning on eating at the Cozy Café. I called earlier in the day and asked if they thought it would be a long wait as we had a “play” we... More

Three of us dined here for super. Dishes ordered included the red and white cavatelli, mushroom cavatelli, and the chicken and noodles. The breadsticks served with the csvatelli were burned, and the marinara sauce is VERY spicy, with red pepper flakes and too much pepper. The chicken and noodles is also loaded with black pepper. It was absolutely awful. We... More
