  • The Why: The River Wards Cafe is just the beginning of a huge renewal for Richmond St.
  • The How: Collaboration!

The cafe is unique to Port Richmond. It provides a "third place" destination in addition to home and work, where people can relax and socialize over our coffee and tea products.  The environment is welcoming and designed to be as vibrant as the culture it hopes to create.  Anchoring Richmond Street in the early stages of the Richmond Street Revival is at the forefront of our mission and closely aligns us with the new development being done through River Wards Group and Urban Renewal Builders.


Port Richmond is rich in culture from its strong international community of primarily Polish immigrants. Richmond Street alone has Krakus Market at 3150 Richmond specializing in polish food and import products.  Port Richmond Books is a true gem of a used bookstore located just a block away at 3037 Richmond Street.  Port Richmond Books has a giant selection of used and old books, and its cavernous space located in an old theater can be a real adventure for the old book fanatic or casual curiosity seeker.  The cafe is a short walk to 2 playgrounds, a dog park on Allegheny Avenue, and Campbell Square Park. 

The Somers Team and the Riverwards Group have provided new construction by Urban Renewal Builders: over 14 new apartments and condos, and 4 new commercial spaces have been added to Richmond Street. The building at 3118 Richmond Street itself has Sold Out, adding 7 new top quality apartments above the new coffee shop. The building at 3044 Richmond Street is now renting luxury apartments and has a commercial space available for you to be the next great business in this inevitable urban revival.
