I got lots of ideas from the "Des Moines Update" thread, but some of the posts in that thread are quite old, so I'm wondering if Kelly's Little Nipper (for the sausage sandwich) is still a good choice.

We love "hole in the wall" places with delicious food, so if you have other suggestions, I would love to hear them.

Also, for a breakfast of coffee and good scones or pastries, are there other good places in addition to La Mie?

I'm not sure we'll be in the mood for steak, but just in case we are, is the 801 Steak and Chop House still a good bet? (I do realize that this does not fall into the "hole in the wall" category :0)

Thanks
