Get ready for a new cafe in SE Cedar Rapids! Thanks to a new article from The Cedar Rapids Gazette, we now know that The Salsa Guy is set to open a brick-and-mortar location!

According to the official Facebook page, The Salsa Guy offers "fresh, high-quality, locally produced salsas, guacamoles, salad dressings, and BBQ sauces." You can typically find them serving up delicious breakfast burritos on 2nd Ave during the Cedar Rapids Downtown Farmers Markets, but they also sell their products inside of local Hy-Vee stores. I know this because I buy a container of their Summer Salsa from the Oakland Road Hy-Vee at least once a month. It's SO GOOD.

At a recent farmers market, The Salsa Guy had a sign outside their tent that announced that the Salsa Guy Cafe is set to open sometime this month at 2874 Mount Vernon Rd SE. The space was previously home to Green Go Restaurant and Sweet Basil's Pizza. We don't have much information yet about what exactly the cafe will offer, but the farmers market sign said that "more details will be made available at future markets." My hope is that they will serve the nachos that I had at last year's Market After Dark (pictured below)! The next Cedar Rapids Downtown Farmers Market is set for tomorrow, July 6th.
