Inexpensive Des Moines Recs for adults and kids?

fern | Oct 4, 2007 07:56 AM

We're spending a weekend in Des Moines with kids ages 7 & 9 and several adults.
I read about an African restaurant near Drake called Cookry but don't see a website, anyone know about that? We're staying on Merle Hay and will be downtown, in the East Village, and near Drake, though we're not exacly sure what we'll do for fun yet so not sure where we'll end up.
We'll have breakfast at the hotel each day so we only need lunches and suppers and maybe coffee/snack breaks.

La Mie sounds good for coffee & a treat, Gateway Market & Cafe for lunch, and we're hoping to go to the World Food Festival and fill up on the many offerings there. What do you think?

Thank you for your ideas.
