Ok, I love this place for coffee and bonus it's right across from my work . Not that I go often (when I'm out of cream at the salon) but I never get a bad or bitter coffee ! This place is a favorite with all the Des Moines locals the drive thru is insane ! I've not had food... More

The staff here are very attentive and friendly. Great family atmosphere. The coffee is well brewed. The food we had was breakfast pastries and my family enjoyed the scones and I thought the coffee cake was delicious. A great place with a great vibe. If you are in the area, it is worth the stop.

I was looking for a local Starbuck’s and stopped by here instead, and they serve great coffee!! They have pleasant seating inside and a few tables outside too. (I also noticed a drive up window too.)

Can't beat Auntie Irene's for a great latter, bagel, sandwich, cookies and ice cream. I come here frequently for a coffee and bagel and top it off with ice cream or a cookie. For days you're in a hurry they have a wonderful drive thru.

The drive-through line can get long but that is not a knock on the quickness of the service, more a reflection of how great the coffee is. They also have baked goodness, ice-cream, and rotating special drinks which are always good as well.

This is my go-to place for great coffee and goodies. They also have lunch items, but I like the atmosphere and the overall set up of Auntie's for relaxing and reading and sipping on my expresso! My favorite thing is Affagoto ...thats' ice cream with a shot or two of expresso poured over it! Lots and lots of ice cream... More

We had just eaten at Wally's down the block and popped into Irene's for a coffee and tea. Nice little shop which offers coffee, tea, sandwiches, ice cream and even serves breakfast. Friend staff, clean and bright and their deck out front is very nice. Great vibe and relaxed atmosphere.

Auntie Irene's has a great little drive through window or a small but quaint cafe you can have lunch or get a nice drink. They keep a good selection of ice cream flavors and provide their products with friendly service. My kids like getting a drive through ice cream on their way down to the Des Moines waterfront parks.

This is no chain ice cream store with bright glaring fluorescent lights. It's a cozy cottage of a place with natural light and warm tones and lots of charm in the air. The ice cream is delicious, but you can also get soup and light fare, and there is even an alcove with one or two tables for a little... More
