We tried their Magic Cookie Bar and the Buckeye Brownie. They were both moist, fresh and delicious. The Magic Cookie Bar consists of butterscotch, coconut, chocolate, and vanilla. The Buckeye Brownie was made of chocolate and peanut butter.

Our beverages were an Iced Caramel Latte and a Cappuccino. Our Barista was very friendly and helpful. Everything was super delicious.

The kitchen will be expanding to include Smoothies and other options, within the next few months.

The new owners are David and Leslie; they moved to Sebastian in 2000. They were the former owner of the bead store in Wabasso.

“It is our firm belief that Sebastian needs a spot for people to meet with friends and hang out. And maybe have a cup of something to drink or a nosh,” according to the Riverview Coffee, Tea and Books Website.

They offer a large variety of books and various games. There’s a large chessboard, tables to make large puzzles, and a kids area with toys.
