Nice little coffee shop near the Drake campus. The beer selection is bottled only. Some Iowa goodies as well as a few other random craft brews. The coffee is nice. The best beers I have seen in the Dogtown neighborhood.

They do not have a very wide selection of beer but it was within walking distance of Drake University.

A very good coffee shop that has a small but well thought out beer selection. Theyíre giving some serious preference to Peace Tree these days & have two of their beers on tap. Although Iím not entirely sure how the taps work, sometimes you can get a pint... sometimes you canít. Itís no big deal though, you can always get bottled beer and there are always a few things worth drinking. The food is good, mostly Panini and bagels and a few baked goods. But everything is well thought out, well prepared, and the quality is very high. The coffee is excellent; the decor is great and features a rotating display by local artists. Plus you can always grab a good beer, so if you go to Drake/Teach at Drake/ live in Des Moines and want a break from booze-centric places to grab a beer, this is a great place to go.

UPDATED Winter 2009. The selection has been decreased here, down to about 11 bottles. They still have local Iowa beers, so if you are passing through may not be a bad choice. Otherwise, this is mostly a great coffee shop with DELICIOUS panini sandwiches.

ORIGINAL FALL 2006. I love this place. Excellent coffee, great scene, weird cosmonaut theme, it has it all! The beer selection was not huge (20 different bottles when I was in), but what they have is well selected, and changes often.
