A new post...Guy Fieri Style!

We're rolling out looking for America's Greatest Diners Drive-Ins and Dives.

This time, we'll see a great joint that is one of a kind:
Hamburgers served up the sweetest way, right in West Des Moines, Iowa.

That's all right here, right now on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

You never know what kind of weather you're going to get in Iowa:
Today the town is shut down with white out, blizzard conditions.
That's why we've got to get inside to try the sweet hamburger treats at Cafe C.

Folks around here say they've got the best sweet burgers in town, and I'm always looking for a burger to mac on. That's why I'm here. The burgers at Cafe C's have been made since the current chef's mom was just a high school student. The sweet burgers were made and sold as treats for high school graduation parties.

Let's go on in and take a peak!
Made with only the best locally bought ingredients,
these burgers are decked out with all the fixins!
Let's try 'em!
Mmmm...amazing! Let's meet the chef!
Little Cloe runs a tight schedule attending first grade by day
and making burgers by night.
Her special technique for the sweet burgers includes
vanilla wafers, thin mints, red and yellow frosting and green coconut.
The flavors meld together to make the most amazing sweet treat that just keeps customers coming back.

Whether it's big customers looking for a little bite...

...or little customers looking for a big bite...

Cafe C is exactly what you'd hope to find when you see a place like this.
It's simple and sometimes simple is best.
The food, the feel, and the folks running the joint:
committed to keeping tradition alive.

Hey Londa,

My sister found your blog last week and pointed it out to me. I have had so much fun catching up on your family. The kids are beautiful! It sounds like you guys are doing a wonderful job with them. Your fall picture with the verse on it is just amazing.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for all the wonderful recipe ideas. I cannot tell you how many times I have come back to write down another one to try. :)(In less than a week!)

So far I have tried the Not Lasagna, big hit! And yesterday I made the Chewy Gingersnaps. I am actually here right now to write down the Buckeye Delights.

It has been fun to get a sense of the fun Londa from the past. Your kids are truly blessed to have a mom so full of life and joy.

Hope you have a merry Christmas. Tell Joy and your parents I said hi.
