My kids go to sleep away camp in town and I was super excited to discover this cafe a few summers ago! Now it is a required pit stop any time we are in town. As a vegetarian AND a Registered Dietitian - The Riverbend Cafe is right up my alley! I love the full variety of healthy menu options... More

Very laid back folks serving up healthy and tasty lunch choices as well as Smoothies and juices and coffee drinks Bonus was being able to order a sandwich because they offered Gluten Free choices. My hubby ordered a salad that was just terrific. Seating both indoors, and outside has... More

My husband and I visited during our recent trip to Great Barrington. We only had coffee but it was very good. The meal and smoothie options sounded delicious and I hope to have an opportunity to try them the next time we're there.

The food is local and fresh, the veggie options are great and the soups and breads are delicious. This is a great spot for a casual lunch or just a coffee or specialty tea.

There's something for everyone in my family at Riverbend. Some traditional foods plus creative vegetarian fare. The make your own juice drinks are great. And a bonus is that we can sit out back with our dog.

This place has been here for a long time for a reason. Well prepared, fresh food in a cozy atmosphere make it a regular stop for many local and visitors. Nice oatmeal at breakfast, terrific sandwiches and soup at lunch and excellent coffee and fresh squeezed juice are highpoints. Laid back and friendly.

Healthiest food options around! I wish they were open for dinner, so I could eat there 3 times a day. Great coffee, fresh juices/smoothies and tons of local or homemade menu options make this place great. There's also plenty of easy parking.

Nice little cafe with great soups, coffee and pretty good sandwiches. Simply perfect for families with small kids, since it has a fun space with toys, books and a spacious (fenced!) back yard with picnic tables and scenic overlook. Made our usual hectic lunch with 3 small kids into a fun adventure!

I selected this cafe for a healthy lunch since it had great reviews & would have something for we vegans, as well as the gluten free & meat eaters. I was a bit disappointed. The garlic hummous was bland as was the tofu in the sandwich (which really bothered me because one of the meat eaters in the group gave... More
