Djonuts are available Tuesday through Sunday at Capes Kafé, located inside the Des Moines Social Club at Ninth and Mulberry, and also at the Saturday morning Downtown Des Moines Farmers' Market that runs from May through October.

Strawberry Oreo Cookie Butter.

Peach Cobbler.

Piña Colada. Bright with pineapple!

PB S'Mores. Graham cracker doughnut, peanut butter and chocolate frosting, toasted marshmallow.

Chocolate Snickers. Crumbled candy bar, chocolate doughnut and frosting. Epic!

Wisconsin may be home to ButterBurgers, but Capes Kafé is home to butter Djonuts.

Good things come in small packages. A trio of Matcha Green Tea Djonuts with cream cheese frosting.

Cinnamon-Sugar. When the butter hits, its like cinnamon toast!

Cadbury Egg with caramel drizzle on a chocolate doughnut.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Girl Scout Cookie Butter, with cookie sprinkles.

Triple PB. Reece's Pieces, peanut butter frosting and cake doughnut.

Strawberry Buck Naked. Taste reminds me of crunchberries, only better.

Chocolate Teddy Graham.

Heath [Bar] Ledger.

Chef Justin Henke's creation: Lemon cake frosted with saffron/vanilla custard, pomegranate molasses drizzle.

Nutella-filled Chocolate, with buttercream glaze and cocoa pebbles sprinkle. So good it makes me tinkle. Uh oh.

Caramel Bacon.

Almond Joy Never Nude.

Buck Nakeds.

Recent eats at Merle Hay Mall: Old Chicago and Flix Brewhouse.

Left, a small Chicago Thick Meat Me pizza from Old Chicago, with Italian and andouille sausages, Canadian bacon, pepperoni, and a green olive and fresh basil garnish. Right, a Chicago Fire calzone. Decent amount of meats and peppers. Despite the jalapeño garnish, the Fire was …umm… delayed.

Left, Mozzarella stuffed meatballs. I'd reccomend them but O.C. went and changed the menu, again. Right, Tavern Bites, featuring fried jalapeño cheese stuffed ravioli, fried spicy pickles, and flavored fries. Meh. I'd much rather have the meatballs.

Huevos Rancheros omelet with a side of deep-fried potatoes at Flix Brewhouse. Clean egg flavor, crunchy tortilla, and crisp veggies impress. Lacking salsa though, a key component of classic huevos rancheros.

Random Bits of Detritus: Lamb Spandex, fresh chicken, Fourth Doctor, Ritual Cafe, the Gambler, alarm bells.

The Spandex of The Lambs.

How fresh is the chicken?

Wee fourth Doctor.

Al fresco, sorta, at Ritual Cafe.

This vending machine sandwich gives me pause for concern.

When bell rings…

Odds and ends at Firetrucker Brewery.

Epic cardboard Millennium Falcon took flight inside the brewery for May The Fourth.

This sign makes me question my eyesight.

Beer is art.

This moment in the sun, on the patio. It brings me to tears.
