Lots of vegan and vegetarian options - Edit

We stopped here before attending a concert at a venue right down the street, and were very pleasantly surprised at the number of vegan and vegetarian options on the menu. The place was very busy, but the food was excellent! We also visited the grocery section, and found the prices to be high on just about everything. They did have some good vegan items in the store, but if I lived in Des Moines I would probably try to find better prices elsewhere.

Pros: Vegan and vegetarian menu options, Nice atmosphere

Cons: High grocery prices

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.
