Looking for a new way to satisfy your sweet tooth? Nothing Bundt Cakes, a national franchise, will open a new location in Fairview Heights this fall.
The franchise is one of 11 new eateries coming to the St. Louis area in the coming months.
The bakery offers 10 different Bundt cake flavors. From classic vanilla and marble to red velvet and chocolate chocolate chip, the bakery creates and delivers cake for every occasion.
Want to give it a try? The bakery expects to open Nov. 17 at 5915 N. Illinois St. The franchise anticipates celebrating its grand opening Dec. 8.
Here’s a look at other restaurants coming to the region:
The wait will soon be over.

Work on the $12 million restaurant and brewery ramped up this summer and into the early fall.

Copper Fire Bar and Eatery
Construction continues on a new downtown Belleville restaurant called Copper Fire Bar and Eatery, which will be open for lunch, dinner and late-night entertainment in a four-story, brick building at 200 E. Main St. It will be in the former home of Quiznos and Junction Coffee & Frozen Yogurt.
Copper Fire will offer a contemporary American cuisine. The menu will be “chef inspired” and will feature both unique and recognizable items.
When can you go? The restaurant expects to open in December. A grand opening celebration will be held after the first of the year.
Coffee fanatics rejoice: a new Starbucks is opening in O’Fallon.
The new coffee shop will be across the street from Walmart at 1411 U.S. 50, near Orange Leaf and Papa Murphy’s. The building currently located there, which has been multiple restaurants over the years including Schiappa’s Restaurant and Luna, will be torn down.
O’Fallon currently has one Starbucks location at Green Mount Drive and Central Park Drive. The new Starbucks is expected to be completed later this year.
Seafood by Crushed Velvet
Seafood by Crushed Velvet closed its downtown Belleville location in August as the restaurant prepares to move to St. Louis this fall.
The seafood restaurant owned by Jasmine Brooks is expected to reopen later this year on Washington Avenue. Brooks said the new location will feature an expanded menu and a full bar.
The restaurant offers lobster, snow crab, shrimp, gumbo and more.
The former Logan’s location
More than two years after Logan’s Roadhouse in Fairview Heights suddenly closed, the building will be revived when a different restaurant moves in. Fairview Heights Economic Development Director Mike Malloy said the city expects a national restaurant chain to move into the vacant space.
The name of that restaurant has not been announced but will be released in a few months, Malloy said.
