In early October, when we reported that Doughy Joey's Peetza Joynt was closed and demolished, many fans of the restaurant were in shock to see it being torn down. After 10 years of business, the Cedar Falls location is being replaced by a Dupaco Community Credit Union.

Now, in a sign of hopefully many good things to come in the new year, Doughy Joey's is coming back to its previous downtown Waterloo location, on the corner of West 4th and Jefferson Street. In April of 2014, owners Chuck and Joanna Landau made the decision to downsize their personal business and sold the Waterloo location. Now plans are being made to move back into that same building.

As their Facebook post mentions, "Stay tuned over the next month as we update you on building renovations, including the new and improved kitchen installation." So there ya go "foodies" of the Cedar Valley, finally a little bit of good news as we head towards 2021.
