  1. Iowa City is about 45 minutes away from Cedar Rapids, not 15, so don’t go to Cedar Rapids expecting to be near the second two shops. If you’re looking for boba in the area, Iowa City has quite a few more places than Cedar Rapids, though the pandemic probably affected them quite a bit. The only other one I can think of in Cedar Rapids is a pho restaurant that also has boba, called Mai Pho– their pho and their boba are spectacular! There are less boba options, but the options they do have are really yummy.
