Arlington’s new is a branch of its women-owned roaster namesake, founded in 2019 by sisters Melissa and Lisa Gerben. Dedicated to thoughtful coffee creations and seasonal dishes, RĀKO is designed to be a neighborhood gathering place, with a curated evening cocktail and wine program.
Located at 2016 Wilson Boulevard, RĀKO Coffee Roasters focuses on sustainably sourced single-origin coffees, environmentally friendly roasting practices, and advanced brewing methods. On the menu are classic coffee drinks, like the macchiato, latte, pourover, and more, along with more unique drinks, such as the volcanic black salt vanilla latte. If tea is more your style, choose between the honey matcha latte, masala chai latte, and more. Also on the menu are pastries, small bites, cocktails, and wine.
With a beautiful interior and cozy patio space, along with a delicious drink menu, the cafe will give you an experience to remember. This new Arlington cafe is open Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
