Update 6/16/20 

Starting on Tuesday 5/19, we started offering drinks again. We are going to continue operating at our current capacity for the time being: drinks, pre-packaged snacks, growlers, and cans of nitro (available as singles, 6-packs, or by the case). 

The online ordering platform allows you to order ahead or for curbside pickup. We ARE also allowing you to order in person now, either through our take-out window on the bike path side of the building, or from inside the cafe on the Bullocks Point door. 

If you do come inside, you must wear a mask! Please be considerate of those around you by helping reduce the risk of COVID-19 by wearing a mask. 

We are aware that some places are allowing inside seating and outdoor dining, but we are going to keep the patio CLOSED for the time being. The state is requiring reservations and contact tracing for all customers that sit in a food service establishment and we're not equipped to handle reservations nor can we confidently maintain a sanitary environment on the patio given the rapid turnover of guest outside during the summer.  

At Borealis we are unwilling to compromise the safety of our staff or our community for  a cup of coffee. We appreciate your understanding in this matter while we all navigate a constantly changing environment. 

Thanks for the support. Be well and stay safe!


We are located at 250 Bullocks Point Ave, RIverside RI 02915

We roast, bag, ship, and serve our coffee all from the small footprint of the old Riverside train depot. While coffee is our primary focus, we also offer a small selection of baked goods from local vendors, available while they last.
