River City Coffee has been a Hillcrest Coffee Shop in Little Rock for over four decades now.  When the weather is rainy or cold, we have plenty of comfy seats available in our warm and cozy shop.  And when the sun is shining and it’s warm, we also have outside seating to enjoy a beverage (or ice cream) while people watching.  It’s all about coffee, but we have tea, muffins and bagels, and eight rotating flavors of ice cream.

Our baristas love coffee and are happy to build you one of their very own coffee creations.  For example, Stephen suggests that if you are salivating for something sweet, then you should try a vanilla latte with a caramel drizzle.  Regi loves to recommend Jeremy’s Trifecta, a blend of three flavors:  dark chocolate, white chocolate and caramel. Lucas will share a bit of poetry with his coffee skills.  And Jeremy will tell you about the subtle differences between coffee bean blends, and then send you on your way with a bag of beans (ground or whole) and the best cup of java in Little Rock.


Speaking of which, Little Rock is known for its artsy communities, and the Hillcrest neighborhood is considered one of the best.  Since coffee and art seem to go hand in hand, River City Coffee invites a local artist to showcase his or her work on their dedicated art wall.  Located in the front of the shop, patrons can view the work on an over 15ft wall of pine and cedar.  Artist receptions occur about once a month, and bring a pleasant aura to the coffee shop.
So stop in and have one of the drips of the day or try a new coffee creation, look at some work by the area’s finest artists, listen to your choice of vinyl (Did we mention we have a turntable?) and enjoy the atmosphere of the Hillcrest coffee shop “Where the quirky get caffeinated”.
