A family owned and operated cafe in the heart of Bucktown, Riverside Cafe opened in 1984 as a delicatessen serving coffee, sweet rolls, and sandwiches. As Bucktown began to boom over the years, Riverside filled the demand and became the only full service breakfast and lunch restaurant on Cortland Street. It has now become a neighborhood favorite, joining the many other small business restaurants on what is know as Cortland Corridor. These days, Riverside is best known for their huge summer patio and spectacular BYOB Sunday brunch buffet, which offers more than 50 items.
