Last year, we reported that the Other Place location on College Street would be closing its doors. December 1st was the beloved Cedar Falls eatery's final day in business.

The COVID-19 pandemic greatly affected business over the last two years, and it's been "too much for us to continue."

That restaurant had been open for more than 50 years at the time of its closure.

Customers were devastated when this news broke.

After being closed for several months, it looks like there has been a development...

In a recent report from the Waterloo Courier, it has been discovered that a piece of property on Main Street in Cedar Falls might soon transform into another OP location.

209 Main Street is currently under construction and if you follow the paper trail, there's a possibility that it may be a new location for the Other Place. This report discovered that an enterprise called JTS Iowa Properties LLC which has ties to the OP owners bought the property for approximately $660,000.

Officials from the company have not confirmed or denied that this could be the plan for the  property.

We will continue to keep you updated as more details come in.
