A few weeks ago, we told you about a new soul food restaurant that opened here in Cedar Rapids called Mama Pearls. Mama Pearls is located inside a building called The Local at 4444 1st Ave NE, right next to Firestone Complete Auto Care in the Lindale Mall parking lot. It appears that Mama Pearls has a new neighbor, because now we know about another new business to open up inside that same building!

A new restaurant called Tasty Crêpe just moved into 4444 1st Ave NE and officially began welcoming customers on March 10th. As the name suggests, the restaurant is all about crepes, which is a popular food that originated in France. According to Wikipedia, It is essentially a very thin pancake that is served with a wide variety of fillings.

Tasty Crêpe's menu features both sweet and savory crepes. In the sweet category, you can try flavors like Apple Crisp, S'more, Strawberry Cheesecrepe, Tasty Brie, and the "Chef's Favorite," which consists of Nutella, bananas, and powdered sugar. If savory flavors are more your thing, there's the Avo Taco, filled with avocado, black beans, tomatoes, mozzarella, sour cream, and salsa, the TCP with turkey, swiss cheese, and pesto, or you can just create your own! Here are a few photos that Tasty Crêpe has posted to give you an idea of what to expect:

Tasty Crêpe's website lists their hours as:

  • Tuesday & Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Friday & Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to midnight
  • Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
