The atmosphere at Ritual Cafe is most definitely casual & laid back. You might even find some of the staff dancing in the back. We stopped in for lunch and got the 4 cheese panini. It would have been better if the focaccia was a little toastier. It seemed to missing a bit of crunch that I would want out of a cheese sandwich. Still great food, however. There was plenty of ooey-gooey cheesy-deliciousness. The horchata latte was a great combination of flavors.

The place is beautiful, the creativity it has is impressive. Very pleasant customer service, the coffee is very exquisite. I came on vacation from Puerto Rico.

I was "killing time" until the shops opened and this is a very cute, non-chain type coffee shop. Limited menu items, but a fun place to hang out in downtown Des Moines!

We were just passing through Des Moines and needed a quick cheap bite to eat and Ritual Cafe was beyond the perfect stop. We got sandwiches and a salad. Both the Jess sandwich and the temph sandwich with sundries tomato’s were amazing. The salad was good but a little bland. The service was quick and friendly, they had cold water, and a really trendy and liberal atmosphere. We would definitely go back.

Cozy place for coffee and bites. Sunny with large doors that would be open on nice days. Brownies, quiche, oatmeal, burritos are a few of the b’fast offerings. The oatmeal was very good. The quiche was a tad bland. It had a good crust but I prefer more cheese in mine.
Order at the counter, bus your own table casual. I like it
