BISMARCK –Bismarck-Mandan’s newest restaurant, the James River Café, has opened at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. The café is managed by Edgar and Isabel Oliveira, owners of the Harvest Brazilian Grill in Mandan. Hours are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
The James River Café features freshly baked pastries and breakfast sandwiches, bagels, a variety of sandwiches and paninis, soups, desserts, and specialty coffees. As a whimsical nod to the dinosaur casts in the State Museum, the Oliveira’s also offer freshly baked T. rex and Triceratops cookies.
“We are excited to open a new café in Bismarck,” said Isabel Oliveira, manager of the James River Café. “This is a great opportunity to partner with the State Historical Society of North Dakota to bring fresh North Dakota cuisine to the community in a beautiful location.”
The James River Café, sponsored by the North Dakota Farmers Union, is also available for catering. The restaurant is located in the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum at 612 East Boulevard Avenue in Bismarck.
