Riverview Cafe & Wine Bar

3745 42nd Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55406 | Seward/ Longfellow/ Minnehaha | 612-729-4200

Location Description:

Do you drink wine fairly often, and wish you knew more about it? Do you find you can't take a class because your free time is occupied with watching your heirs chew on large plastic keys? Well, load up the car seats and head to the Riverview Wine Bar, the greatest thing to happen to sociable parents since the invention of the backyard barbecue. The Riverview is two establishments connected by a door. On one side is a coffee shop with a vast play area, toys, little tables, and so forth, along with couches for the grownups (and all the coffee drinks you could ever want); on the other side is a romantic wine bar with a fireplace, great snacks like olives and pizzas, and a wine list with a serious education mission. (Half a dozen wine flights are always available, which means you get three little glasses of wine chosen so that you can taste and explore a grape varietal or particular region--do this a dozen times a year and you'll know more about wine than half the servers in snooty restaurants.)
