Riverside Too may have to move

WICHITA — It looks like Riverside Too at 924 S. Woodlawn may need a new home.

Dollar General is interested in putting a store at the intersection of Lincoln and Woodlawn.

Paul Cohlmia, whose original Riverside Cafe is in Riverside, opened the second one in the former Livingston’s Cafe in 2010.

If the Dollar General deal happens, it sounds like he most likely will try to keep Riverside Too open in another spot.

We’ll let you know what happens.

Riverside Too set to open Thursday

WICHITA — Paul Cohlmia is set to open his new Riverside Too Thursday in the former Livingston’s Cafe at 924 S. Woodlawn.

Riverside Too will feature the same menu as Cohlmia’s Riverside Cafe on W. 13th Street in Riverside.

“Everything’s the same,” Cohlmia says of his two restaurants.

The interior eventually will look the same as well. Cohlmia says he’s already painted the new space the same, and within a month or two he’ll have old pictures of Wichita hanging on the walls like he does in his other cafe.

Hours are the same, too: 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

Bob Livingston and his wife still will own Livingston’s Diner at 832 N. Webb and Jeanne’s Cafe in Lincoln Heights Village at Douglas and Oliver.

Livingston’s Cafe sells to Riverside Cafe owner Paul Cohlmia

WICHITA — Bob Livingston isn’t ready to retire, but he turned 65 years old today and is ready to slow down.

He and his wife, Jeanne, have sold their Livingston’s Cafe at 924 S. Woodlawn to Riverside Cafe owner Paul Cohlmia.

“We’re not quitting,” Livingston says. “But it’s time for me to start cutting back.”

He and his wife still will own Livingston’s Diner at 832 N. Webb and Jeanne’s Cafe in Lincoln Heights Village at Douglas and Oliver.

Livingston says he’s not interested in selling those restaurants.

“Not at this point.”

Cohlmia plans to rename Livingston’s Riverside Too.

“It’s going to be similar to this,” he says of his current restaurant.

He’ll offer the same menu as Riverside Cafe and will feature old pictures of Wichita on the walls.

The Livingstons’ last day in operation is March 7, and Cohlmia will open a few days later.
