I love shopping at the Jordan Creek Town Center in West Des Moines. I can find children’s clothing, kitchen supplies and department stores all in one place. Much like the array of stores the mall offers, the surrounding area also has a diversity of locally owned restaurants, sure to please any palate. Spend the day shopping and eating through this vibrant Des Moines suburb. See my list of restaurants below for a day full of fun and food.
Mahalo’s Coffee is a great place to start your day. Signature mini donuts with a big Hawaiian flair fill their menu and diners’ stomachs. Any donut aficionado can appreciate flavors like Bacon Sunrise, Turtle Bay, Strawberry Shore and Salty Seaside.
Authentic, homemade and served fast, Tasty Taco’s is a favorite among Des Moines area residents. While there are many locations throughout the Des Moines area, visit the West Des Moines location for tacos, burritos, nachos or their Krispos, a fried flour chip dessert topped with cinnamon sugar and served with a side of honey.
If you’re need of a sweet afternoon pick-me-up, look no further than Scratch Cupcakery where more than 250 sweet varieties tempt hungry shoppers. While not all the flavors are available on a daily basis, Scratch offers a daily assortment of customer favorites.
Wind down after a full day of shopping at Wellman’s Pub & Rooftop. A range of menu items like salads, sandwiches, burgers, pasta and pizza are sure to please even the pickiest eaters. Sit on the rooftop in the summer and enjoy a relaxing atmosphere and great company.
