River Dine

Rivrewalk Landing by Alexander's Photography

Savor dining at one-of-a-kind restaurants, many with a water view, or grab an ice cream cone and enjoy it as you stroll by the river or sit on the beach.

Ben & Jerry's & the Green Mountain Coffee Café

Phone: 757.969.1990

With more than 30 different flavors to choose from, Ben and Jerry’s Yorktown makes it almost impossible to pick just one. Our advice? Order a large and make it a double… scoop! Popular flavors include Bourbon Brown Butter, The Tonight Dough, and Triple Caramel Chunk. You’ll also find several flavors that aren’t available in most stores, as well as pints to help you stock your freezer. The menu includes sundaes, milk shakes, sorbets, and smoothies. You can order your scoop in a waffle cone, bowl, or even a waffle bowl (gasp!). Whatever you decide, don’t forget to grab the napkins.

Green Mountain Coffee Café features espresso, cappuccino, café latte, café mocha, and specialty coffee drinks—all organically grown and freshly ground.
