Whenever I am in the Des Moines area, I try to make it to Cosi's. The atmosphere is classy, especially when the fireplaces are lit! The lightly spiced bread they serve with oil and cracked pepper is superb. Their meals are wonderfully put together. My favorite meal is their alfredo al pollo and I top off the evening with a caramel Italian soda with cream. What more could you ask for?
Pros: Reasonable, Great Atmosphere, Amazing food
Cons: A little dark
