If you are looking for a local, small business to support...this is a safe, fresh place to start! Love that they have multiple locations now throughout the Des Moines area.

What a treat to find this gem so close to my new place of work. Terrific place for lunch - just wish they stayed open later, so I could have dinner there too.

Consistently tasty salads, sandwiches and soups. The turkey, cranberry, cream cheese sandwich is to die for and their chicken salad is the best around. Top it all off with a scrumptious brownie. Yum.

I have lived in the Des Moines area for over 2 years and never experienced Palmers. What a mistake !! I love this place and all the options they offer for lunch. I will definitely return many times in the future. Highly recommend, you won't be disappointed.

Fast knowledgeable service personnel; great menu selection with made-to-order service if requested. In-shop prepared foods (potato salad, etc) are excellent.

If you are looking forward to a really good deli meal, this is the place. I love the quiche, but a tasty ample sandwich is never a bad choice. The restaurant is large and the people quick to help you build your meal to suit your whims of the moment.
