Ada’s Kitchen + Coffee to Open in Riverside
Chef Mike Pietrafeso is officially opening the doors to Ada’s Kitchen + Coffee on Monday, Feb. 22. Located next to the Riverside train station within the newly renovated historic building, the spot will offer artisanal coffee and locally sourced scratch-made foods. For over 60 years, Ada and her family’s variety store and popular candy counter occupied the space.
“Anyone that stops by mentions their fond memories of Ada and her store. I appreciate keeping the nostalgia alive and at the same time adding a new chapter to it,” said Mike, a Greenwich native himself. “Many people will come in here looking for candy, which we have in honor of Ada, and then they can try great coffee and be wowed by the food.”
Ada’s Kitchen + Coffee will offer ingredients that are locally sourced, offered in a seasonal menu and paired with a variety of locally roasted artisan coffee from Path Coffee Roasters in Port Chester, NY. “Featuring local and fresh ingredients is what I do best. We’re pulling our own mozzarella, curing all the meats and even making the ice cream that will go into the ice cream sandwiches.”
The current Ada’s menu includes two-dozen breakfast, sandwich and salad options in addition to scratch-made treats. For more information visit AdasKitchenandCoffee.com
