ACC adds more food and beverage options so Riverbats don’t have to leave campus. The college opened a new coffee shop at the Rio Grande Campus, and more are planned to open later this year. 

Cafe Rio opened on the first floor of the Rio Grande Campus on January 17, 2023. It serves both breakfast and lunch items as well as specialized coffee drinks. Cafe Rio is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Two additional cafes are planned. A cafe at Eastview Campus is expected to open later this spring, followed by a cafe at Riverside Campus with an opening date still to be determined. These cafes will all be run by Campus Operations staff.
