The mimosa menu includes cocktail varieties like caramel apple, orange creamsicle and peach.

Phong Lan reopened its dining room June 1 after a long stint of carryout only through the pandemic.
The Vietnamese restaurant offers a variety of popular Southeast Asian dishes, including its popular pho and spring rolls, at 216 Eighth St. SE in downtown Cedar Rapids.
Phong Lan is open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Barrel House coming to downtown Cedar Rapids
Less than two months after announcing a new Marion location, Barrel House has announced plans for a downtown Cedar Rapids location, opening in October.
“The high profile corner at First Avenue East and Second Street SE will be revived with a twist on traditional tavern favorites, specialty cocktails and an outstanding selection of local beers on tap,” said GLD Commercial Real Estate in a news release.
The new location will occupy the 3,500-square-foot space formerly filled by La Cantina Bar & Grill.
Barrel House founder Jimmy Holt said he recognized the effect COVID-19 had on downtown Cedar Rapids and the void of restaurant options.
“We saw an opportunity to be at the forefront of the recovery and hope others will follow,” Holt said.
The Marion location will open this summer. Barrel House has locations in Davenport, Dubuque and Moline, Illinois.
