Hi! We're Native Coffee + Kitchen.
We're family-owned, locally sourced, chef-inspired, team-driven, and eco-conscious. We believe that getting food and coffee out and about should be a refreshing experience! It can be a struggle to find a place that nourishes your soul as much as your body, a place you can feel good about fueling up again and again. We also wanted a space to go ourselves, a place that wasn't a sit-down restaurant where guests have to wait for service (and then give up the table when they're done), and yet also a place we could eat food that didn't sit heavily in the stomach like fast food, and a place where our kids would feel comfortable and happy.
Over months of hard work and brainstorming, Native became a casual and clean dining space with fresh food and open seating. We determined to give our place its best chance and scoured the region for the best coffee people and the best chefs. With expert hands and local help, we stripped and rebuilt and poured our hearts into the perfect space, right on the Rye traffic circle, and we called it Native.
Although the name Native fits so many facets of our mission (to provide local coffee and food to local people, and to allow passers-through to feel like locals, too), we knew it was meant to be when we, Josh and Christina, partners in this venture, realized it's a perfect combination of our children's names: the first part of "Natalie" and the last part of "Clive." We made this space as much for them as we did for us, and we're proud that they get to be a part of it in this special way.
We can't wait to see where this journey takes us. We hope you'll stop in and visit. There's always space at the table.
