Dessert waffles join lineup at Riverside Food Lab
Another new tenant has been announced for the Riverside Food Lab, and it is Irvine-based Sweet Combforts, which serves up honeycomb-patterned waffles on a stick with dessert toppings and ice cream.
The food hall next to Riverside’s Fox Performing Arts Center is expected to open early next year, and developer Arteco Partners began naming vendors last week. The first two were Bricks and Birch, a purveyor of wood-fired pizzas, and BeerFarm, which will offer a curated list of craft beers and small-plate pairings.
The Food Lab stall will be the second location for Sweet Combforts founders Geoff Manila and Anne Marie Damaso, who also operate at Trade Food Hall in Irvine and in April took their treats to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Arteco officials will be naming one or two tenants every Friday until vendors for all 14 spaces at the Food Lab are announced.
