What really makes Joseph and Ryan stand out is how true they stay to being authentic and building real connections. Whenever you pop into one of their spots, chances are, you’ll catch them there, making sure everyone's experience feels personal. They’re all about keeping things transparent in the kitchen and love to shake things up in Cedar Rapids with their unique dining spots. It’s this blend of passion and sincerity that’s earned them a special place in the hearts of the local food scene.

"People are naturally drawn to things that feel real and genuine, especially those made in small batches. Everyone craves that personal touch. Behind these special items is a person, not a machine, making the experience warm and inviting. We're all for supporting that human connection."
