Offering down-home food, Riverside also offers for-sale artworks hung by a local arts group. Exhibits change every two months. Their navy-bean soup is worth a trip by itself; try the bacon-and-grilled-cheese sandwich with it.

Food was inexpensive but nothing exceptional. Wait staff didn't seem too sure of themselves during a rush but did OK.

The food is great but breakfast was a little expensive, It is a family owned local establishment. They always greet you with a smile.
