At the beginning of the 20th century, horses whinnied and snorted in the basement of The Livery building, according to the Des Moines Register. Today, though, the cleaned-up space is home to a cozy cafe run by Betsy and James Gideon. Betsy and James strive for thoughtful quality in the form of single-pour brews of coffee and the pastries they bake in-house. The café's ovens are not only for pastries, though; the Gideons also bake fresh bread for sandwiches rather than using prepackaged bread or reconstituted croutons. Guests can recline on wooden furniture that James Gideon constructs himself, or head to the outdoor patio in warm weather.

Fat Randi's Bar & Grill, a casual gathering spot where cooks grill burgers and bartenders tap brews, has a claim to fame: its hand-breaded tenderloins were ranked as one of the state's top five Best Breaded Pork Tenderloins by the Iowa Pork Producers Association. That ranking inspired Des Loines—a blog entirely dedicated to pork-tenderloin sandwiches—to review Fat Randi’s version, describing it as "nice, thick and juicy" with a "nice golden brown color,” and noted that its wealth of toppings caused it to lean to the side. The staff of Fat Randi’s hosts events regularly, such as a steak fry, Daytona 500 party, and a New Year's Day brunch.
