Also know as the Tuscany, they display both signs. My expectations were not high based on previous visits. The menu currently leans toward familiar Mediterranean dishes so I was a bit surprised when the special was Schnitzel, one of my favorite dishes. I was pleasantly surprised with the pork schnitzel with mushroom sauce (more of a gravy), red cabbage and... More

Fantastic food, charming decor and amazing staff!!!!! As a newcomer to Des Moines, I was so pleased to find this little gem. The baked goods for sale were great too, a very positive experience.

This is not haute cuisine-- it's very basic American fare-- lots of pancakes and eggs and bacon. The coffee could be stronger, but it was ok. I ate there three times in two weeks (it's a favorite of my local family) at different times of the day, and the service was uniformly solid. They knew my uncle by name and... More

You're NOT going to impressed with the atmosphere, view, decor, or even the food! But don't miss BRUNCH, especially if you need to take the seniors in your family out. This is an old school diner, true and true. I can't and won't speak for the menu items, but at $13 for brunch? Are you kidding? You can also order... More

I am a huge fan of breakfast brunches, this one does not disappoint! They have a great variety of foods and the staff was pretty friendly.

A great stop for breakfast, lots of healthy options, great service, a local spot that has been consistent for years! A real treat for St Patty's day visit this year, delightful corn beef and cabbage! Yummy! Close to the marina for a nice stroll after breakfast also.

Dinner was quiet as they don't get a lot of customers which is a shame. We found the food yummy and the menu had a great selection including pecan crusted halibut and apricot chicken.

We have visited DesMoines Creek over the years as it has undergone various changes. I just read the review by cmchaca and have to agree with much of what she said. Some cosmetic changes would make a big difference but the cheerful staff more than makes up for the wear and tear. The place was cheerfully decorated today for Valentines.... More

My husband and I live in Kent and this small downtown, quint from the outside looking diner is on the way to our auto mechanics (Shout out for EuroAsian Garage) and closest Trader Joe's. Passing by several times over the past couple of months, we finally decided to try it for breakfast. Upon walking in, I noticed both potential and... More

We've eaten here many times before but it has been a while so we noticed a difference. The name was modified a bit so now it's "Tuscany at Des Moines Creek". They had many of their regular menu items including fantastic pies. But with a name as Tuscany they added some Med stuff which I wasn't interested in. With the... More
