This is the place I go to get a quick birthday, wedding, or holiday gift. They have a great variety of things for the home including candles, decorations, and things for entertaining. It is not hard to find something I'd love to have, or something I know a friend would enjoy.
Flarah's makes little mini cheesecakes that are fantastic. They are bite-size and while you're probably only supposed to have one, I like to try a few, just for a little adventure and variety!
This is a great place to get a gift for someone that is from Des Moines, but may no longer be in the area. They have some great shirts about Des Moines/Iowa playing on the fact that some people don't know where we are, or they confuse us with Ohio or Idaho. Check out the store - there are so many shirts to see!
I love stopping in this little shop. I've mostly purchased some of their jewelry items, but I love the bowls and other art pieces. The store is filled with color and has practical, yet creative pieces for your home.
I love the tacos (chicken and beef), especially the unique flour tortilla. But admitedly, I barely go there because I always feel so guilty about the grease intake.
I tried the pancake flight and the theme was Ben & Jerry's. They served four small stacks of pancakes with various toppings/sauces reminiscent of Ben & Jerry's ice creams (i.e. Cherry Garcia). The toppings were a little sweet, but it was a fun way to try something new.
The bed and breakfast was a very nice option in the Macomb area. There are only six bedrooms in the place and my group had four of them. The beds could have been a bit cozier, but it was nice for us each to have our own bathroom. The floors squeak pretty loud, so I felt like I was always tip-toeing around. They do accept small dogs, which was a big plus.
Hands down, B-Bops has the best burger in town! I love the lettuce, tomato, and onions on the burger. So much better than a flat, skinny burger from McDonald's. The fries are also exceptional - skinny, crispy and salty.
I love the wall of TVs in the main area of the restaurant, except for the one or two green TVs where its hard to make out much on the screen. If they could switch a couple of those out, it would be the perfect spot for game days...lots of beers and great wings!
You go in and kind of feel like you're in a converted old country buffet. I forget what used to be there, but they've got a ways to go to compete with the atmosphere at Taki. The sushi was really very good and had great presentation, so I'll definitely go back.
