Our Story;

We’re fairly new to the scene as we opened last November, but so far it’s been an auspicious beginning! I (Emily) am a big fan of regional Mexican cuisine, and over the course of my career I had been developing a menu that would celebrate the artisan street food that I adore. When COVID happened, there seemed to be a need for affordable, high-quality fare that could be accessed in a quick, contact-free environment- so Taco Dreams must have been in the stars!

We’re devoted to elevating working peoples food and having a ton of fun nourishing our community. All the maize tortillas for the tacos are handmade every morning with non-GMO heirloom corn from Oaxaca, and we try and source the rest of our ingredients as local and as organic as possible. We run specials all the time, like a Hawai’ian Plate Lunch every ‘Aloha Friday,’ as well as Tamales and our ‘Maid-Rite’ Tacos (‘The Muscatine’). We’re endeavoring to have something that everyone can feel the love with- from the hardcore foodies to vegans to families just wanting a quick and healthy meal that everyone can agree on!

Our Story:

The four founders and owners, Hopi James, Annalisa Thompson, Clint Stephenson and Cole Fishback have been making hard cider together since 2013.  They opened their first downtown location in 2014 (and won best burger in Iowa in 2015) and moved to their current location in 2018. The cidery and restaurant are now located under one roof in a beautiful timber framed taproom. The timber for the building was logged from the owners’ county forest and milled in the parking lot!   The exquisite taproom/restaurant showcases breathtaking views and the patio seating is a dream. It is the perfect view for Iowa’s exquisite sunsets. You can view the cidery through the glass doors and if you’re lucky you can catch the owners in action and sample some of the newest creations. In addition to awesome burgers, Cider house has a full bar featuring  house made cider, top shelf selections of liquors, unique cocktails and so much more.

Our Story;

We began our journey by introducing authentic Ethiopian food to the Fairfield Community as food vendors at Fairfield’s Saturday Farmers Markets in the summer of 2010. While working as vendors we received feedback from our customers that they would like to see us open a restaurant so they can enjoy our food any day of the week. With that in mind, we received the opportunity to serve at the Holy Spirit Church on Thursdays during lunch. This was a small step forward however, we knew we wanted to give our customers more. In 2015, we began serving at the Fairfield Arts and Convention Center 5 days a week. Our service has attracted customers not only in Fairfield but from all over Iowa. Sharing the Ethiopian food and culture with the Fairfield community has been a great joy, and we are thrilled to continue to do so.
