Weather you’re after a cup of coffee, freshly made sandwiches or you’re simply jonsing for a change of scenery, come spend some time at at the Riverview Café! Kids and pets are always welcome, so are laptops!   



In 1998, David Bernick fulfilled a lifelong dream of opening his own cafe. His wife Mara soon joined him in running the business and together they opened the Riverview Cafe in 2005. Located in Longfellow neighborhood in South Minneapolis, the Riverview Cafe is both a gathering space for the community as well as a place to enjoy quality food and drinks.

Located approximately one mile west of the Mississippi, the business is situated on the corner of 38th street and 42nd avenue south, kitty-corner from the iconic Riverview Theater.  The 1908 building has seen various reincarnations including family owned soda stream, neighborhood pharmacy, video rental store and an antiques shop. The Bernicks are proud to keep this tradition of serving the Longfellow Neighborhood alive and well.
