Kid Friendly Coffee Shop
in South Minneapolis

Families are always welcome at the Riverview Café. In fact, we have a safe, hand-painted play area set aside in the back of the café where kids can be kids and parents can relax. And relaxing in our Southeast Minneapolis restaurant is what we’re all about.

Whether you’re here to work or relax, to have a cup of coffee or a simple meal, Riverview Café is the South Minneapolis coffee shop that fits your lifestyle. We have free wifi, pastries, soups, specialty sandwiches, and organic, free-trade coffees that reflect the local neighborhood.

Riverview Café also offers live entertainment on the weekends featuring blues, bluegrass or jazz. And you are welcome to bring food, wine or beer from the Riverview Wine Bar over to the café to enjoy along with the music.

We like to think of ourselves as the kid-friendly coffee shop in Southeast Minneapolis that caters to families, couples and individuals who understand what neighborhood really means. We also offer meeting facilities for small groups. Riverview Café is at 3747 42nd Ave S. in Minneapolis, kitty-corner from the Riverview Theater. We are open M-Th 6:30am – 10:30pm, Friday 6:30am – 11pm, Sat. 7am – 11pm, and Sunday 7am – 8pm. Please call 612-722-7234 for more information.
