nice treat on a hot day

Well what can you say, it's ice cream ! We had been walking for some time, it was hot and we stopped here for a cone. Good selection of flavour. I had a twisty while my wife had a sundae. Only disappointment with that is that it was like strawberry jam and syrup rather than fresh berries. It was... read more

This is a great little burger joint right at the river in Minden. Exit Bobcaygeon Rd and you won't miss it. Went in the summer 2013 and was ok, long waits and food was average. Under new MGMT in 2014 and food was better plus the place got a face lift. There are picnic tables right beside the river to... More

We stopped here to rent some floaties. The owner will then drive you a couple of miles up river and you float back down. It takes a good hour to float back down. The river is slow moving and clean. One of the floaties had a slow leak and only just made it to the end. We all enjoyed this... More

We loved this place! We would go for a walk along the River walk and end up at the pirate ship playground behind the River Cone. Kawartha Dairy ice crean, yummy fresh fries, swings and slides...we were all in heaven! Definitely worth a visit when you are in Minden!

There’s a restaurant, located in Minden, which has been there and has been a favourite for quite some time, but it is starting to show signs of age. I’m referring to none other that the River Cone, that big ice cream-shaped eatery specializing in greasy fries crisp onion rings and juicy burgers. I must admit the place looks worn. The... More

The Rivercone is located right beside the Gull River in Minden which makes it a very special location and is only a minute or two off the highway. There is lots of seating outdoors. The burger was homemade and very fresh. The fries were overdone and hopefully they'll fix that because everything else was great - burger, fries and drink... More

The Rivercone was a great place to eat. When the owner is there the food quality is great. When she is not it is really a hit and miss. The burgers are pretty good. I dont care for the ice cream unless it is the kawartha dairy that they sell. they have a great play area for kids. recently they... More

Since the new owners took over this year, we've noticed the quality of the hot food has gone down considerably (very greasy) and so has the service.
