Breakfast in Warren Served Sunnyside Up

East Bayers were collectively disappointed when Three Rivers, the breakfast and lunch hot spot on Water Street in Warren, closed its doors late last year. Where else were they going to go for unique breakfast offerings and beautiful waterfront vistas? Plans to re-open the restaurant in another location have since been halted and the former chef is now lending his culinary creativity to the Beehive Café in Bristol. 

Now locals who loved Three Rivers are eagerly awaiting the latest daytime dining incarnation to open there. The Sunnyside is rumored to start serving next week sometime and promises casual breakfast and lunch fare like breakfast pizzas, salads, burgers and seafood. Unlike Three Rivers, the chances of hour-or-longer waits are slim, as the new restaurant will seat about fifty people, sharing the entire space with Tav-Vino, which will be open for dinner. In preparing for the new arrangement, Sunnyside owner Joe Simone and Tav-Vino owner Paul Bullock updated the kitchen, adding a wood-burning grill and a high-tech griddle. It’s a much-needed addition to the Warren dining scene, which has recently seen the closing of both India and Feast or Famine on Main Street. Happily, breakfast in Warren now comes with a view again.
