Antique decor creates ‘whimsical’ coffee hub

Located at 22 Southwest Ninth St. in downtown Des Moines, this refurbished industrial building hides underneath an underpass and is fairly easy to miss on the outskirts of the city. But if you’re lucky enough to find a parking spot and wander in, it’s impossible to be disappointed.

Push open the heavy, refinished door with a brass handle, walk up a few creaking steps and underneath an old, hanging cathedral light and the building comes alive.

Old things from window panes to repainted shutters to fixed neon signs are ordered against the walls.
