During our visits to Stillwater, we usually eat downtown. However, we spotted this place on the way in and decided to stop. Are we glad we did! Decor is diner style, with booths and tables and chairs. The menu offers a range of options from traditional to on trend, and breakfast is served for extended hours. I chose a traditional... More

This is a great place for breakfast! Large portions, good service and great taste! I take clients here for breakfast when they are in town and they have all left satisfied. Also, a great place to go if you were out late the night before and need some good comfort food!

We went for the first time as part of the best burger in the valley contest and have been back many times since. The location is great - very easy to get to without running into the downtown stillwater traffic or crowds. Parking is easy and we have been greater promptly each time we have gone. The burgers really are... More

Great escape from the crazy crowds of Stillwater. We stopped to avoid the down town Stillwater traffic and were so glad we did. Workers super friendly and the burgers were great! I am a huge diner/dives kind of gal and this was such a great spot - totally recommend. All the character and charm of an old style diner with... More

Had breakfast there on a monday. Perhaps the good help was all resting after a busy weekend because our service was terrible. I joined 2 friends and waited 10 minutes for coffee. We were there at 8, didn't get food until 8:30. Food was decent but I won't be back any time soon. Used to eat here all the time.... More

Combine the old 50's diner with updated menus, excellent food and the friendliest owners and staff in the valley, and you describe the River Oasis Cafe! Try chef Natalie's "Breakfast Salad" and you will be pleasantly surprised!! Award-winning burgers and baked-onsite pies round out the reason for my 5-star rating!

Perfect Cafe setting. Love the booths. The service was great. The owner played tic tack toe with my daughter. He made us feel welcome with his big smile and happy attitude. The food was terrific, she had kids meal cheeseburger, awesome fries! Not huge, perfect kid size. I got the havarti , bacon, tomato omelet with hashbrowns and sour dough... More

This restaurant has been part of the Stillwater scene for many years but the current owner has transformed it into a place where the menu is broad and the food is delicious. Our experience has been limited to breakfast and lunch which have never disappointed. Although we are calorie conscious eaters neither of us can resist their wonderful hash brown... More

We have loved this little out-of-the-way place for years. Had breakfast there again this morning and, as always, the food was tasty and plentiful, service was delivered with pleasant greetings and a smile, and prices were very reasonable. If you like small, privately-owned establishments with lots of character, ambiance and quality, take a break from the big chain restaurants and... More

This restaurant is a great example of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives We were staying in the area over logging days, we went on a Monday for breakfast. They were not busy but very friendly. When asked the waitstaff suggested a breakfast salad as the best item on the menu. I had one. It was a Mexican breakfast salad with all... More
