Drake University Joins the Gourmet GuidePosted on Mon, 04/22/2013 - 15:36
Welcome to the Gourmet Guide, Drake University! Midwestern friendliness and food go hand in hand at the cafes, diners and BBQ joints of Des Moines, Iowa. If you're walking Drake's 150-acre campus, you will welcome having the admission office's inside information for where to grab breakfast, lunch or dinner. From the pastries and artisanal bread of La Mie Bakery to the seared sea scallops of Centro and the skillets of the Waveland Café -- a favorite spot during the Iowa Caucuses -- there's something for everyone. How about the They’re Coming to Get You Barbara burger -- ‘two grilled-cheese-sandwich’ bun, American cheese, caramelized onion, bacon, and Zombie sauce -- along with a Wedding Cake milkshake at Zombie Burger? That sounds like adequate fuel for the college road trip. Check out all their recommendations here.
