La Cantina Bar & Grill has closed its downtown location at 102 Second St., Cedar Rapids. On Feb. 3 it posted to its Facebook page that the decision was a hard one to make.

“We have been proud to be a member of the downtown Cedar Rapids community over the last 10 years. We have enjoyed being part of the growth and watching the downtown area come alive after the flood of 2008. As with many local restaurants, 2020 was a challenging year full of many obstacles. With that being said, we have come to the very difficult decision to permanently close the doors to our downtown location. We will cherish the many wonderful memories that were made at this location and all of the wonderful customers we had the chance to serve. Closing the doors to our first restaurant is incredibly hard, but we must focus our energy on continued growth at the other two locations.”

La Cantina’s other locations that remain open are at 5400 Edgewood Rd. NE, Cedar Rapids, and 3217 Seventh Ave., Marion.
