St. Kilda Surf and Turf: 5 Things to Love

DSM Magazine

Alexander and Whitney Hall continue to raise the standards for polished-casual dining in town. The owners of St. Kilda opened their newest venue, St. Kilda Surf and Turf, last Wednesday in the East Village. These five things impressed me most on an opening-day visit…

Your first look at St. Kilda Surf & Turf

Des Moines Register

Surf and Turf — with its rustic metal panels, laminated wooden beams and elegant black-and-white wallpaper — blend perfectly with pendant lights and Edison bulbs. And floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the stunning view of the downtown Des Moines skyline.

417 Magazine

A chic, full-service Australian-fare cafe is the icing on the cake to this busy, beautiful weekend. Breakfast at St. Kilda is just as pretty as the spacious, modern interior of the cafe. Try the avocado toast topped with roasted corn, pickled red onion, feta cheese, cucumber and tomato salsa.

Best of Des Moines – Best New Local Restaurant


The Australian-style café and bakery opened in May of 2017, and it has been a hit with locals. The restaurant takes its name from owner Alexander Hall’s hometown, St. Kilda (near Melbourne), and serves artful “healthy, modern dishes” for breakfast and lunch.

Food & Wine

On the ground floor of a beautiful residential conversion, steps south of the downtown core, you’ve got the whole nine yards, in a giant, gorgeous space — avo toasts, smoothies and salads stake a claim for good living, even in the dead of winter.
