Menlo Cafe in Menlo Iowa
Location: 502 Sherman St in Menlo, population 352, about forty miles west of Des Moines in Guthrie County.
Directions: Menlo is along a stretch of State Highway 925 known as White Pole Road, and is about 2 miles off of I-80. Menlo Cafe is along the main street through town.
Online at: no website for the Menlo Cafe, but check out the White Pole Road.
Price: $6.00 with ridged potato chips.
Service: There were a couple kids waiting tables when I was in. Each table had a pitcher of water frequently refilled.
Final Thoughts: The Menlo Cafe gives people the small town Iowa cafe experience in a place not far from Des Moines. If you want a more impressive tenderloin, you have to drive further west to get to the award winning places out that way.
