A Church Hill coffee shop has been born anew.

Riverbend Coffee Co. opened last week at 2623 E. Broad St. in the space formerly occupied by Captain Buzzy’s Beanery.

Married couple Tasha Bobrosky and Brian Colegrove bought Captain Buzzy’s assets in the spring and renovated the space, which Buzzy’s had occupied since the early 2000s.

Bobrosky and Colegrove renamed the shop for the view of the James River from Libby Hill Park, and retained much of the staff from Buzzy’s, which had closed a few weeks before they bought it.

Bobrosky and Colegrove cleaned up the space and reworked the food menu. Riverbend offers breakfast sandwiches, paninis, smoothies and pastries. It also serves five blends of house-roasted coffee, along with a full espresso bar and specialty drinks.

Riverbend is open 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.
