Breakfast

A quaint local restaurant. The breakfast is excellent. A variety of breakfast favorites all homemade. The portions are generous. Counter or table the service is fast and friendly. Anything on the menu is a good choice.

Very nice atmosphere, try to go during warm weather so you can eat outside. Food is fresh, and very good.

Fun and funky setting. Excellent and creative breakfast options. A little miscommunication between server and kitchen on one order, but remedied pretty quickly.

This has been my favorite breakfast place in Milford (and the Milford area) for several years. I always get one of the stacks because their shredded hash browns are amazing and now they offer half orders! Which is awesome for people who want a delicious breakfast and be able to leave without feeling gluttonous. The cafe does get very busy... More

The food at the Riverhouse Cafe is well worth the close quarters you'll experience when going there. I mean, absolutely fantastic food. The staff is nice, but not very engaging, most likely because it's always so busy. My only true criticism would be that the coffee could be better, but I greatly appreciate that Riverhouse offers an organic option and... More

As the second half of the "older couples" that NH Joe mentions below (we don't feel old!) we also enjoyed the experience of eating at Riverhouse Cafe. The menu is wonderfully diverse with items such as "Pig Pile" and "Compost Heap" which are so nicely presented. There are half portion options which this "older person" appreciated. There are so many... More

Two older couples went out for a leisurely breakfast on a weekday morning. Arrives about 8:45 am, and the place filled up quickly thereafter. Three pages of breakfast specials, all featuring locally sourced items, organic and/or healthy additives. Two rooms, one smaller and off to the side with about 3-4 tables, a bigger main room with U-shaped counter in the... More

They use local ingredients from local farms as much as possible. Large portions, love the "Stacks!" Can be crazy crowded on weekends.

We visited the restaurant on a Friday night we were greeted by a somewhat ambivalent, rude server. We stood there for five plus minutes and she acted put out that we wanted a table. We ended up walking out never to return

Excellent breakfast and lunch with inventive and yummy combinations. Pancakes were completely calorie worthy and I am a snob when it comes to pancakes. Hash is homemade as are the home fries. Compost Heap is yummy and the best part is that you can get a 1/2 order. Late mornings on the weekends we have been seated right away. This... More
