About Pier i Cafe

Pier i Cafe

Welcome to PIER i CAFE, we are seasonal outdoor café located along the Hudson River, in Riverside Park South (directions).

Open air, scenic river views and dramatic sunsets, provide both an escape while adding another dimension to city life. We offer a casual menu; the ingredients are high quality, fresh food. Whether you order our Fresh Lobster Roll, Fish Tacos, Pat La Frieda Burger, Frozen Drinks, Craft Beer or our Freshly-Made Blueberry Lemonade, we are sure you will have a relaxing and pleasurable experience.

Come enjoy an informal style, instead of table service, where we offer an easy ordering system so you and your guests can retrieve food & beverages at your leisure.  Reservations are available on weekdays for parties of 20 or more with 48 hour advance booking here.

Please join us at PIER i CAFE. Start your day sipping a latte or espresso at our coffee bar and end it with a white wine sangria or a thirst-quenching draft beer, all while watching the boats go by.
