About 2 years ago I made a trip to Des Moines for a wedding and one of the places I stopped was The Mars Cafe. Well, that coffee house met with hard times and closed in August. Then, 4 regulars to the coffee house heard the announcement and made plans to buy the place and re open it. Long story short: It’s opening again on September 15th. Let’s hope it takes off this time.
What I wanted to say was that when I visited Mars Cafe I really loved it. Great atmosphere, eclectic furniture, and great coffee. So, if you are in Iowa give it a try.
