The changes in public access "definitely affected us for the first few weeks, but we are even more popular now. People see us as a destination, so our customers make us a priority throughout the week," said manager Matthew Davis. He said that all types of clientele head to Riverside for the vibe and to share in their passion for a quality cup of Joe. "We have families, businesses who hold meetings in our private back room looking over the river, bikers, runners and kayakers coming off the river. And the residents are happy now having their personal space back on the weekends."
As for the offerings? The homemade spinach quiche had a light and flaky crust and was a divine start to the day, but the top taste was definitely the vanilla latte. Others raved about the daily-featured coffee blend as bold and nutty with hints of caramel. Everyone enjoyed the fresh air, green space and happy ducks swimming by.
