Riverwalk Cafe at Monarch Landing

Naperville, Illinois

Monarch Landing wanted to turn their tired, cafeteria-like cafe into a dynamic and fresh bistro environment, while finding efficiencies during the design process to better serve their residents and staff. The 124 seats can be arranged within a variety of settings which include the large main dining area, a more intimate banquet seating area, and the “pub,” which can be closed off with large barn doors for a private space or resident events.

The main servery counter offers a clear view to the culinary skills of the chefs at the action station. Here, residents can see their custom salads made fresh to order or have their panini sandwiches presented to them hot off the grill.

The new cafe was designed with Springtime in mind and features flowing curves, bright finishes and natural textures.

Details that make a difference.

​Curving architectural forms signify movement, while the light finishes, wood tones and white tile work provide detail with an open and airy feeling throughout.
