Cafe planning breakfast burrito giveaway holiday bonanza

Riverside Cafe in downtown Oak Harbor will be giving away 1,000 free burritos Saturday at 11 a.m.

As a way to thank the community for their support, brothers Cali and Felipe Cibrian will be giving away 1,000 burritos this Saturday at their restaurant, Riverside Cafe in Oak Harbor.

Anyone can come by for a breakfast burrito from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. There will also be chocolate chip pancakes for kids.

“It’s been hard for everybody, and we love our community, so we want to give a little back for all the support they’ve been giving us,” Cali Cibrian said. “We’d love to give back a little bit now that everybody’s tight.”

People will be required to wear a mask and social distance, and the brothers will hand them their burritos in the two parking spots in front of the business at 705 Southeast Pioneer Way in downtown Oak Harbor.

The restaurant known for a long menu has been open for takeout since the governor’s COVID-19 restrictions went in place. It’s been a little slow, Cibrian said, but the brothers are still happy to give back.

The restaurant is also coming up on its fourth anniversary on Dec. 15, Cibrian said.

“Me and my brother, we’re doing everything, we’re surviving” he said.

“That’s why we’d love to give back to the community. We can all do little things to help out.”
