Hearty. Healthy. Delicious.

Enlightened Home-Style Cooking in the Heart of Brookline Village.

About Us

Our vision is simple:

Great food, friends, and community.

Led by Colleen Marnell-Suhanosky - Brookline resident, mother of three, and celebrated chef - Rifrullo offers a fresh take on the traditional café experience. We focus on bringing top-notch flavor and creativity to familiar American cuisine, with a bit of worldly inspiration. All of our breads and baked goods are made by hand in our kitchen, and our ingredients are locally-sourced.

Our goal is to make you feel at-home here, whether you're visiting from Newton or New Brunswick - and we promise to do whatever we can to make that happen.
