Reviews for University Library Cafe

One of the best spots in Des Moines for sure, the workers are always so nice to everyone. Great food, great beer, and great location! If you visit or even live in the area you need to try this place at least once and you'll find yourself there again shortly.

Amazing everything. Great date spot, brunch spot ( breakfast nachos and hard iced coffee!!) With not skeezy but dicey atmosphere in the best ways. Amazing and gorgeous staff, great customer service and one of my fave dsm classics. Dont miss this one unless you hste enjoy good food and epic beer and unique beverages!

I have driven past this place countless times and never expected to much from the looks of it. I wish I stopped by sooner! Cause I have been missing out! Nice little dive serving some really, really good food! A huge selection of local beer too! The wait staff was super cool and chatted with us while we were hanging out slowly eating our food. Highly recommend this awesome local gem!
