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?


Family Dinner

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!
