New Downtown Cedar Falls Restaurant Opens In August
Downtown Cedar Falls is getting a new addition this summer, and it will have a whole lot of history.
A few months back, we reported that a new restaurant was in the works on Main Street in Cedar Falls. Carter House Market & Café is located right in the heart of Downtown and located right next to the historic Black Hawk Hotel. The two businesses are run by the same people.
Carter House will have a takeout-friendly menu with items like sandwiches, salads, and even picnic basket meals. Some other items they'll have include charcuterie boards, lasagna, and even deli sides.
Beer and wine will also be available at the new Downtown Cedar Falls restaurant/market.
The restaurant's ultimate goal on their website reads, "We hope this concept meets folks where they are in COVID and post-COVID times; farm to table becomes farm to lunchbox, to pantry, to picnic, to party! It’s our goal to bring good quality food wherever you are."
Carter House won't be opening its doors fully until sometime in August, but you can still try out some of their food very soon. According to restaurant officials, the restaurant will open for online deliveries and curbside pickup on either July 15th or the 22nd.
The name "Carter House" is a bit of a tribute to the hotel's long history in Cedar Falls. After the hotel's Winslow era, the hotel went by the moniker of the Carter House. It was a major success but in the late 1870's it was destroyed in a fire. Following this tragedy, the hotel was replaced by the building that stands today.
