Great selection for everyone..open 7 days a week,all day long.All homemade food right down to the breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. Cozy mess for breakfast, tenderloin or chicken salad for lunch, cavatelli specials galore for dinner, or try their feta salmon salad with a citrus vinaigrette.Top it off with a special coffee from grounds for celebration that they specialize in and even a cappuccino smoothie. Take my advice and try it all, you won't be disappointed. i promise:-)

Excellent non-chain choice

I have only had breakfast here, but it is excellent. Eggs benedict and French toast for my table were good. Good service, fresh hot coffee kept coming.

Old school dinner type setting located in Johnston just off the Interstate by several stores and hotels. The menu was basic comfort food( burgers chicken,blue plate specials n a big breakfast menu.) It holds maybe 60-70 customers so in a rush time seating could be an issue. We went at an off time and were the only 1's in the... More

Best breakfast around. The pancakes are plate sized and a little crispy. Great service and food! Will come back multiple times.

My wife and I frequent this location often. We live close by and really enjoy the food and the staff. We primarily eat their breakfasts. Good portions and good value. Their homemade pancakes are excellent. I enjoy the omelettes, scrambles, biscuits and gravy, as well as the hasbrowns and marble rye toast. The lunches are good and quick and they... More

The service and food was very good, but I ordered some onion rings with my sandwich and either the waitress didn't tell the cook or the cook forgot. We did get them eventually.

First time went it was pretty good. The 2nd time the cavatelli was horribly indescribably foul and the onion rings were cooked in funky oil that was long overdue to be changed. We wont go back Scary food safety practices suspected..

I have eaten here three times with my fiancée and various others. Twice for breakfast and once for supper. The breakfast is very good. Try the cozy mess it is a little of everything. The portion size was good and price was good. We ate at the SE 14th location I couldn't find a tripadvisor site for them. Supper was... More

Recently went there to sample "The best chicken in Des Moines" as touted by the sign on an outside wall. If that is the best chickent the city has to offer, "Popeyes" must be close behind. Very similar with a heavy crust. By the way, I don't like "Popeyes". Ordered two sides of green beans and got one.....plus lumpy mashed... More
