2020 has been a ride so far, hasn’t it? The stresses of the pandemic and this election have left a lot of us anxious and worried. Not to mention the families navigating the new normal at school and work. Which is why we want to remind our customers in Coralville, IA and surrounding communities that we have a cozy, relaxed dining room, whether you need to study or just sit quietly and clear your head!
Did you know that our dining room is currently open? Our entire team is still practicing social distancing and wearing PPE, all so we can provide a safe and cozy place for our customers to unwind. If you need a place to study, or to get away from the stress of school (even if you’re virtual learning) then we would be happy to see you!
