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 (Postponed for Now)
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 gluten free pastries, sandwiches, salads, and other delicious things. Our kitchen is entirely gluten-free with vegetarian, vegan, and paleo options available daily.

At Rivers and Roads Coffee we roast all of our coffee in-house. We focus on buying the best quality green beans from across the world and roast in small batches carefully timed for perfect drinkability when we serve you. Our constantly rotating selection doesn't sit still for long, giving us the opportunity to experience some truly excellent and unique offerings. Our roast aesthetic leans heavily to the lite side of the roast spectrum, endeavoring to highlight the terroir of the growing region and respect the efforts of the skilled farmers and importers who make our craft possible.
