The Arepa Place

About Us

The Arepa Place specializes in a Colombian and Venezuelan dish known as arepas. We were founded in Cincinnati in 2016 by owner, Isis Arrieta-Dennis, who is originally from Colombia. She and her mother (also named Isis) are responsible for all the recipes. After more than two years of using Findlay Kitchen and serving food on the weekends from a pop-up tent, we opened our first brick-and-mortar at Findlay Market in October 2018.

We have immense passion for the cuisine that we create and the experiences that are shared over food. We love serving the people of the Greater Cincinnati area, and we hope everyone enjoys our authentic Colombian dishes. Thank you for visiting our website, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
