This Charming Restaurant In The Heart Of Amish Country Is An Iowa Dream

The Amish Country Store and Iowa Welcome Center is located at 109 Spruce Drive in Lamoni just off of I-35 at exit 4. The town of Lamoni is just north of the Missouri/Iowa border and is about an hour south of Des Moines. You can park your car or your buggy in front, enjoy a nice Maid Rite lunch, and spend some time shopping this retail establishment for Amish-made jams, baskets, cheese, candies, pies, and a nice selection of various gifts. Don’t forget to buy some lemon snap cookies for the drive home.
