A Taste of the Arts in Des Moines, Iowa

417 Magazine

A chic, full-service Australian-fare cafe is the icing on the cake to this busy, beautiful weekend. Breakfast at St. Kilda is just as pretty as the spacious, modern interior of the cafe. Try the avocado toast topped with roasted corn, pickled red onion, feta cheese, cucumber and tomato salsa.

Best of Des Moines – Best New Local Restaurant


The Australian-style café and bakery opened in May of 2017, and it has been a hit with locals. The restaurant takes its name from owner Alexander Hall’s hometown, St. Kilda (near Melbourne), and serves artful “healthy, modern dishes” for breakfast and lunch.

We Can’t Believe How Cool Des Moines Is Being Right Now

Food & Wine

On the ground floor of a beautiful residential conversion, steps south of the downtown core, you’ve got the whole nine yards, in a giant, gorgeous space — avo toasts, smoothies and salads stake a claim for good living, even in the dead of winter.

5 Things I Admire About St. Kilda Cafe

DSM Magazine

Something I’ve noticed in my many years of reviewing restaurants in Des Moines: You can rarely get expert espresso drinks and a complete dining experience in one sitting. Frankly, I can think of no venue with the whole package: a full bar, an extensive and talented kitchen, dedicated table service — and a serious espresso machine.

St. Kilda is Expanding to its Second Location


The popular Australian-style cafe and bakery is expanding in Des Moines a year and a half after opening its first location. St. Kilda is opening a new location near the Temple Theater at 1013 Locust St. in the old Starbucks space.
