Riverside Cafe South to open Friday

WICHITA — Paul Cohlmia’s Riverside Cafe South is set to open Friday.

The restaurant, which will be in the center at the southwest corner of Pawnee and Meridian, will replace Cohlmia’s Riverside Too at 924 S. Woodlawn because he says Dollar General is interested in putting a store there.

Cohlmia says this location will open at 5 a.m. weekdays and Saturdays unlike 6 a.m. at his other restaurants.

“There’s a bunch of industrial shops that … we might help out for breakfast,” he says.

The restaurant will be open until 8 p.m. daily except for Sundays when it will be open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Riverside Cafe South is opening in the former Crazy Horse Saloon space.

“But we’re not serving alcohol,” Cohlmia says. “Sorry.”
