This place was just a bit disorienting inside to me. I am still not real sure that we got what we thought we had ordered, but it was decent enough. The prices are modest. It is convenient, being on the square.More

Description
Anything Sweet & More Cafe is located on the south side of historic Downtown Square in Winterset, Iowa. Originally, we opened in February 2012 as a pastry, bread, pie, & sweet shop. In March 2012 we began serving hot, homemade entrees & soups & fresh, made-to-order sandwiches and paninis, along with our delicious desserts. We are a popular lunch cafe for both area residents & tourists, as well as a meeting & dining place for several local clubs & groups. Our menu changes seasonally, with selections celebrating Italian, German, & American heritage with an emphasis on comfort foods. We are happy to accommodate special requests -- vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, or other customer requests are our pleasure. Our atmosphere is casual, clean, & friendly & we're always glad to see you! Open M,T,Th,F,Sat from 11 AM to 3 PM.
