Great place for coffee and breakfast

What an great place. I love it when I see the owner working hard, helping customers, and the place is jam-packed. It shows how much the owner cares about his place. LOVE this place.

What a beautiful and immaculate little restaurant. Very, very small, wonderful baked goods, meals are limited but delicious. Staff friendly. Nice presentation of food. Went there twice on our trip just because we were so impressed.

A business associate suggested that we meet here - she said it's her favorite place. We arranged to meet at 9.30am and the place was heaving with people when we arrived, so we had to wait a while to get a table for our meeting. Huge selection of pastries, quiches, and other items. I had a croissant - delicious. The... More

This was my first visit. I expected a small bakery, but this place has grown larger and has nice distinct areas. There is a large display of pastries on a stand where you make your selections and place on a plate (eat in) or bag or box for takeout. I selected a few to take. The rhubarb puff pastry was... More

I always have to drag my husband to these little restaurants but he loved his french ham sandwich and I loved the beet and quinoa salad. We had to get a box of pastries go also. We'll be back next time we drive thru Des Moines.

Our favorite restaurant for breakfast in the area and the French roast coffee is good. Hate it when people don't play by the informal rules of getting a table after you order! Can make for a wait.

I have been coming since it was opened. If you are visiting its a great place for breakfast - croissant's like they are supposed to taste. They have wonder sandwich's to go for lunch as well. It is well worth a visit.

We came for breakfast this time, it is the first time we were able to get there early. I had a great egg omelet and desert, toast, coffee! The wife and daughter each had something different too, and we all loved every bite.
