Just two months into the new year, and we're already getting some new businesses! It's an exciting time to be in Cedar Falls.

A new bakery will be having its grand opening at its new Cedar Falls location next month.

You might have spotted the bakery's most popular treats "Bambinos" at your local Hy-Vee. The shop shares the same name as these adorable little treats! Bambinos opened its first location in early March of last year at their location at 1445 Ansborough Avenue.

The owners have opened a SECOND location right on Main Street.

Bambinos is the passion project of a local cancer survivor named Donna O'Brien. The bakery is described on its Facebook page as a combination of her, "Italian heritage, love for baking and passion for helping others."

O'Brien has been running the business from her own home for several years.

O'Brien is the brains behind the operation and a breast cancer survivor as well. She has insisted since the bakery's inception that a portion of the profits goes towards a non-profit organization called Beyond Pink Team.
