We believe in putting love above all else.
Without love, life is empty. That’s why at Rivers and Roads Coffee, love is at the center of all that we do. With every action we take - from the bread we bake to the coffee we roast, we work hard to place love first and to care for our community.
In a world filled with so much turmoil, we strive to create a place of rest, peace and sanctuary. Won’t you join us?
Join us for family dinner on the second Thursday of every month from 6-8pm (or until we run out of food). Family dinner is free, just donate as much or as little as you can afford. All proceeds go to supporting community projects and organizations in our neighborhood. Spend some time getting to know your neighbors – all are welcome!
At Rivers and Roads, we are a little crazy about the details. We roast our coffee, scratch make our syrups, bake our own bread and pastries, and geek out on food. Our rotating menu features scratch made pastries, sandwiches, salads, and other delicious things. Along with our regular menu, we also have gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, and paleo options available daily.
Our Selection of house-made pastries rotates daily. Alongside traditional pastry offerings, we also bake for many dietary restrictions such as gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. Follow us on Instagram for the current selection.
