My family and I stopped into Anything Sweet & More Cafe to grab a bite to eat as we were passing through the quaint town of Winterset. Initially, we were put off by the thrift store feel of the cafe, but once we met our waitress, ordered our food and eventually met the owner/cook, we found our experience to be... More

We just wish we had found this wonderful Cafe when we first arrived in Winterset. The owner saw us with our nose pressed to the window as they had just closed & asked what we were looking for. We told her just some really good food. She said to come back in 1 hour and she would make us dinner.... More

The owner/chef greeted us with a huge, friendly smile and told us all about her award-winning recipes. She was funny, friendly, and a good cook. It's not fancy, but it's like eating at Grandmother's house - delicious and satisfying, and there's cobbler for dessert... you can't go wrong with cobbler. I definitely recommend it!

My mom liked her egg salad sandwich more than I liked my Margherita panini. The price was good and the service polite. All sandwiches came with chips, a pickle, and cookie.

Food was great with a home cooked feel, Turkey pot pie soup easy awesome. Owner was very personable. If your looking for a good meal stop in, but if your looking for fancy atmosphere keep moving.

We stopped in here looking for ice cream or a treat and found much more! Lisa was very welcoming and explained what they offered. Fresh meals made to order all including a cookie for dessert. Our unique fresh sandwiches were delicious and the homemade soup was fantastic. Lisa was the waitress and the chef on this particular day. She was... More

Yikes! We read reviews on TripAdvisor but failed to note that those reviews were done long ago. Service by very young girls was questionable and unappealing. Soda was served in a cloudy plastic glass with a few mostly melted ice cubes floating on the surface. When this was coupled with the 1980's thrift store decor it yeided a feeling of... More
