Every morning since we left Des Moines (Iowa) I curse the fact that I can’t go to Tartine for a cup of the perfect coffee and pain au chocolat! They only have one coffee because it’s the right coffee. The pain au chocolat was so good I had it two days in a row. If you’re in the Des Moines area, give Tartine a try. They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a brunch with cocktails. It’s quite comfortable and very cute inside and kid-friendly without being too loud. My fiancee loved it, too and we took home a couple coffee mugs to remind us of our trip and the fun we had.

Seafoam green macarons…! Enough said.

        Oh, me too! This place is darling and wonderful. The coffee is to die for. I can’t wait until I’ll be able to go there almost anytime I please! 😀

    Looks like a lovely place. Where in DM is it?

      It’s on University right across the street from Biaggi’s. Here is the actual address: 12695 University Avenue Clive, IA 50325
      It is definitely worth going to! We didn’t eat lunch or dinner, but breakfast was awesome. I’d go back again and again for the coffee alone! 🙂
