A new eatery is coming to Ceres soon as work continues on the building at Fourth Street and El Camino Avenue for Loza Wine and Crepes.

Extensive remodeling is taking place on the site, including the addition of a patio.

The Ceres location will be the second for owner Yelena Tsymbal who has a successful business in downtown Turlock.

LOZA Wine and Crepes is a small, family operated restaurant established in 2016 to offer a little bit of an edge to the community’s culinary choices. Loza – the name was inspired by the Ukrainian noun for grape vine – has become known for its selection of wines, signature cocktails and flavored mimosas.

The cuisine served in Turlock consists of a European and Ukrainian fusion inspired by farmers markets and the changing seasons, which keeps menus fresh. The eatery serves a large variety of fresh produce and ingredients grown on the family farm near Turlock.

The business specializes in sweet and savory crepes, but provides other tasty selections. Entrees include such items as sandwiches, wraps, pitas, black bean burger, grilled chicken caprese,. The restaurant also serves salads and weekend breakfast items.

The Ceres building was first Youngdale’s and later was occupied by numerous other businesses over the decades, including West Coast Call Center, a short-lived lighting store and Addy’s Boutique.
