One of the most popular new restaurants for coffee or lunch in Cedar Rapids is the new Groundswell Café!

Located at 201 Third Avenue SW, it’s open Monday through Friday from 9:00-2:00, serving homemade sandwiches, soups and salads.  Food never tasted so good!

It’s specialty is its locally grown food, some on its own premises or in its urban farm less than a mile away.  All the coffees and teas are purchased from organic, fair trade businesses.  What a treat!
Best of all, every time you eat and drink at Groundswell, you are helping alleviate hunger.  The entire café is a “pay-it-forward” model, with your meal helping to pay for a healthy meal for someone who is hungry.

You can even request a fairly private area for a small group meeting or a special lunch for a group of friends. There also is more than 2,000 square feet of event space available for large groups, church or family events such as birthday parties or graduation celebrations.

And guess what!  This is all available at our own United Methodist Matthew 25 Hub!  Whether you work in Cedar Rapids or are there on business or for shopping, it’s the” new trendy place in town” to have coffee or lunch!  Try it out….you’ll like it!  *For more information, check out their website!
