Come join us in The Riverside Café for delicious protein smoothies, a healthy power sandwich and daily specials. You can call us at 573.337.9128 and have your order ready to pick up.

Did you know that it is important to get protein in your body immediately to 30 minutes after your workout? This is called the “anabolic window” – a period of time after your workout that leads to the best recovery. The goal should be to provide your body with an immediate source of fuel to prevent it from breaking down your muscle tissue for energy. Place your order in the café before your workout and we will have your well-deserved and delicious protein shake or yummy wrap ready for you to take with you.

Call us to cater your next event!

We offer catering for events of all types both on- and off-site. The Café has catered for weddings, retirements, box lunches, and so much more! You can also reserve the Café for special events such as private meetings or baby showers. If you would like to use the café for an event outside of our normal hours, please call at least a week in advance! Call The ARK and Rikki will help you create the perfect menu for your next event!
