New Riverside Cafe recipe box

Plastic box and laminated paper recipe cards used by cooks at the New Riverside Cafe in Minneapolis, Minnesota between 1980 and 1997.  The cards in front of the box display recipes for wild rice salad, vegan cinnamon rolls, and a “deluxe” calzone with cheese sauce.

The New Riverside Cafe was the first full-service vegetarian restaurant in Minneapolis and an early example of the cooperatively-owned and -operated business that flourished in the Twin Cities beginning in the 1970s.   The cafe closed its doors in 1997.
