Great atmosphere and menu! One of our Fav Brunch spots!

We love to go here Saturday mornings! Yes, they serve brunch both weekend mornings and it starts at 7 am! The room is warm and cozy and we love the decor. The menu is delicious and diverse. I love the tator tot hot dish with spicy sausage, light gravy, poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce... read more

Enjoyed warming up here after our chilly Segway tour. Although we went during happy hour, I could not limit myself to that menu as there were just too many excellent choices. Would love to try the Sunday brunch next time I'm in town.

Set in Riverplace the restaurant is nicely decorated. We had excellent creme brûlée French toast and tater tot casserole with beautiful hollandaise. Coffee was flavorful and strong. Service was cordial and attentive. The gorgeous view of the park and the river made for an ideal after church Sunday Brunch. We will return and bring friends.

This was a very trendy hipster café. The location is great, right on the river and the décor was very cool. My husband got a black coffee & I got a mint mocha that was excellent. The peanut butter cookies were also very tasty, although the barista suggested we get the chocolate chip. We ordered to go and walked along... More

Had a coffee, surfed the net, and enjoyed the view. Great people watching combined with a hip interior made this place well worth returning to.

Right on the riverfront on old main street, this place is themed after Oscar Wilde. The menu was interesting. I had the truffle tater tots but they sound better than they were. And to be honest the beer battered fish and chips had a bit of a sweet taste that I didn't care for. My dining companion liked it though.... More

My partner and I met my family at this restaurant for a Thursday evening meal after we arrived in town from Florida. The beers were pretty good but we found the majority of items we ordered to be "just okay". The nachos had very little cheese on them, pretty much non-existent, and the "famous" mac and cheese I ordered was... More

The Wilde Roast is a throwback to another era with their decor. There are antiques and a peacock theme. During warm weather, it is a treat to sit outside. We split the veggie strata with the gouda hash browns. The large omelet was full of wonderful veggies and the gouda hash browns were fantastic. The restaurant was rather quiet since... More

Met a friend for breakfast. There was a little snafu with an omelette but the service was fantastic and our omelette issue was resolved quickly, professionally, and much to our satisfaction. Plus the patio seating by the river is hard to beat.

We had had a busy evening and after the Torchlight 5K and Parade walked over to the Wilde Roast Cafe for some of their amazing gelato. I have had gelato in several places in Italy and this is just as good if not better! The Wilde Roast was the perfect place to end the evening with a sweet treat!
