Only One Original

The Drake Diner has been a Des Moines landmark since opening in 1987. Located just south of the  Drake University campus in the heart of Des Moines, we are an upscale retro diner that serves classic homemade comfort food. And yes…breakfast is served ALL DAY.

We are proudly family owned and operated with the friendliest, most awesome staff in town.

If you are a stranger, you won’t be one for long!
