I had to return the next day in order to use my Groupon because the employee didn't know how to process the Groupon.

The $9 croissant sandwich was very hard. The $9 turkey sandwich had 1 slice of turkey. Not worth the money. The $6 small coffee frap I could have got larger and cheaper at Starbucks. I would like to support smaller local companies but not when I do not get my moneys worth.

It's one of my favorite places to meet with friends for lunch or long conversations. I never feel rushed no matter how long I stay and the people are very warm and service oriented.

From Our Editors

When George Rivera-Davis first tasted coffee from beans grown on his uncle’s farm in Panama, he was amazed—it tasted nothing like the brown liquid he’d been taught to call coffee in Des Moines. Inspired by the delicious brew, he ventured into the coffee business. Now, George and his wife, Jan—herself a certified tea blender—grow their own coffee in Panama with the aid of their family, bringing gourmet brews to Des Moines through their award-winning coffee shop and café, Grounds for Celebration. Grounds for Celebration’s coffee connoisseurs roast beans onsite before brewing fresh cups of java, blending espresso creations, and flavoring lattes with Monin syrup and Ghirardelli chocolate. Thirsty patrons can also opt for yerba mate, chai, and smoothies, or venture into Jan’s area of expertise and gulp tea in varieties that range from gunpowder green to ginger peach.

While sipping from steaming mugs, patrons can also munch croissants and cinnamon rolls baked fresh each day. At midday, they fortify themselves for afternoon paperclip jousts with lunch sandwiches, salads, and wraps. Some take their time to savor natural, from-scratch gelato while sitting amid the café’s local art and connecting devices to free WiFi.
