Delicious Choices - Edit

Several vegetarian and vegan options from the cafe menu. The Tofu Bahn-Mi is my go to meal, a large portion & awesome flavor. I find their pad Thai to be lacking, unfortunately. However. There also a ton of awesome vegan options from the grab n'go sections. Definitely a good place to stock up on groceries as well.

Pros: Local, Mostly delicious , Reasonably priced

Cons: Grocery store small & packed, Needs more vegan options in cafe

Great vegan options for Des Moines! - Edit

Gateway Market is a great local grocery store with an amazing restaurant as well. The Vegan Tofu Banh Mi is a must try. Spicy and good!

The cafe has awesome options! - Edit

It might not sound initially appealing to eat lunch or dinner in a grocery store, but it is worth it! The grocery store itself has a lot of fun food options, but in the cafe, there are plenty of options, from vegan chili, to a black bean burger, and a tofu banh mi that is delicious and unique. One of our go-tos for eating out. The grocery store part is starting to add more vegan options too such as house made vegan queso dip!

Pros: Lots of options, Hearty portions, Nice atmosphere

Cons: A little expensive, Selection in the grocery store could be bigger

Delicious Food - Edit

Gateway Market also is a restaurant and they have several vegan and vegetarian options available. Their Vegan Bahn Mi is absolutely amazing and they always provide great service. There food selection is also wonderful although a bit more expensive due to being a smaller market. They have lots of organic produce and a great selection of local beer. The only thing I wish they had is more vegan bakery options. All I found so far are some "healthy" chocolate chip cookies.
