Collective Coffee blends Italy's rich café tradition with the Pacific Northwest's third-wave coffee culture, instilling a combination boutique coffee house and inviting artist's retreat in the heart of Riversdale.

Collective Coffee also steeps harmonious teas ($2) and rewards sweet teeth with hot chocolate ($3.75) and freshly baked goods by Caffé Sola.
Performance Plus Quick Lube's team of trained technicians is well-versed in the most common oil myths and uses that knowledge during regular oil changes to transform coughing engines into efficient, long-lasting, high-performance car-hearts. After expunging the contaminated sludge from the engine’s crankcase, the Performance pit crew enlists up to five quarts of Quaker State Enhanced Durability synthetic blend motor oil for a three-month (or 3,000-mile) tour of lubrication duty that eases piston pounding and traps engine dirt in suspended animation. Once they've installed a new oil filter, they'll top off the car's coolant, power steering fluid, and umbrella drink.

Julio Urroz and his team of experienced technicians customize rides at their brick-and-mortar shop or on-location with mobile services. They add an air of mystery to cars, trucks, and SUVs with window-tinting films, which safeguard interiors and drivers against dangerous UV rays.

A computer cuts each film to the auto's exact specifications to ensure a good fit. To further enhance any make or model of car, staffers can also apply adhesive decals or custom chrome kits, and perform interior and exterior detailing services.
