The Riverwest Co-op Café opened in 2004 next to the store in what used to be the building's garage. We serve what we're confident is the best vegan and vegetarian food in town. The Cafe is open 7 am to 9 pm Monday through Friday and and 8 am to 9 pm on weekends. Outdoor seating is available when the weather is good.

The Café menu is vegan/vegetarian made-to-order sandwiches, soups, desserts, and smoothies, using organic and locally grown produce whenever possible. A rotating selection of freshly-made vegan and vegetarian bakery and desserts are also featured. Our cooks takes great pride in using predominantly local, organic and small company produced ingredients.

We now serve our full breakfast menu every morning with extended brunch hours on the weekends: 7 am until 11 am on weekdays and 8 am until 2 pm on the weekends. A limited version of our brunch menu can also be order at the Riverwest Public House from 11 am to 2 pm on weekends.

Call for take-out orders, delivery via Flavorcycle or information on catering orders.

"...the co-op's true gem of a sam is the tempeh rueben, which local, organic tempeh marinated in a special sauce, then piled between two slices of rye bread along with Teese cheese and 1,000 island dressing." -

"They have really delicious brunch on the weekends with giant pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and a variety of yummy breakfast plates. My favorite co-op sandwiches are the Tempeh Reuben and the Phamous Philly, which is the greatest Philly I’ve had outside of Philadelphia." - The Noochy Noodle Blog
