Returning to this restaurant in my hometown after 20 years, was a truly rewarding experience. The breakfast is 100% incredible. The owners use as much local produce and products as possible, the portions are large, and the food is excellent. The place was absolutely packed when we arrived for breakfast on a Friday morning and we can see why.....If you... More

First time at this great restaurant! A special surprise of unique menu items and home made, farm fresh, local products including organic coffee! Creative, fun names for dishes. It is a very popular breakfast place and a wait to be seated and a wait for your order are common place, especially on a weekend. We were there a little ahead... More

This is my favorite breakfast restaurant. They have great, unique breakfast dishes, amazing dark roast coffee, and excellent burgers. They have one of the most accommodating gluten free menus I have seen. I recently had the "compost heap": eggs over hash-browns with Monterrey Jack and avocados. It was very satisfying! As an added bonus, it's in downtown Milford, which is... More

I went to the Riverhouse Cafe in Milford on a Saturday morning in early June. I had to choose among several places to eat on the Milford oval, and this place had a very appealing vibe. The breakfast menu is extensive, with tasty looking options like pancakes, french toast, omelets, breakfast sandwiches, and their own creations - something called "piles."... More

Go try their chili, and the grilled cinnamon bun. Yum. All of the people there are nice, and two thumbs up for taking that dilapidated old eyesore building and turning it into a real nice looking spot.

The Servers that are hired have generally been young kids who have little polish, the company training program seems to be very short and limited. We visited on my Birthday, and presented my frequent dining card. I was not looking for anything other than a nice meal, my Birthday was not acknowledged, which surprised me as I had received a...

I had a burger and it was great. Cooked exactly like I asked for on a very fresh bun. The breakfast options looked tempting, but I had already eaten breakfast earlier. Next time I will go back for breakfast.

The Riverhouse Café on the Milford Oval has the best breakfast in town! I am a regular there on Sundays after my Spinning class. The food is always hot and prepared to taste. If you get there right around 9am on Sundays, you can usually get a table right away although if you do have to wait, it's not very... More
