They use local farm fresh eggs and other products. The make their own sausage patties that are excellent and the chef's menu is very creative. Haven't had a bad breakfast yet. Only ate there once for lunch but have to admit that meal was great too.

The menu and options are amazing. The portions was perfect. The server warmed up as the meal continued she wasn't all the great at first but we enjoyed her at the end. The ingredients make you want to go back!

Very interesting place! All day breakfast with a lunch menu. I was there for lunch on a Monday and it was extremely busy but the staff was very efficient (and friendly) and handled the rush nicely. Locally sourced with organic options. I will go back and I recommend the place.

We had an outstanding breakfast and service at this small cafe. The menu was inventive. The Riverhouse Cafe's Johnny Apple Cake was delicious and enough for two people to share...part pancake, part desert. Also shared an order of Veggie Bennie (cheesy hash browns topped with spinach, tomato, and poached egg covered with hollandaise sauce). Very popular busy place in downtown... More

Once a year on good Friday both my wife and I don't have work but the kids have school. We always try and grab breakfast at some local eatery. We had been to the Riverhouse once or twice but it had been some time. I had fond memories of the food being good so was excited to go again. I... More

The cafe gets especially busy on weekends, when the Milford Oval traffic is heaviest. There are two other good breakfast places right off the Oval so you don't need to wait if you're hungry. Midweek is much quieter, and you stand a far better chance of getting one of the few river view seats. The breakfast portions are very generous.

We find that the Riverhouse Cafe offers a wide variety of both breakfast and lunch dishes. This works perfectly for our weekend schedule when we have brunch. We always know whatever we're in the mood for, will be available. The food is so fresh and tasty-you can always count on that! The service is friendly and attentive. You really can't... More

This is a good local cafe that uses locally sourced ingredients. We went for breakfast and found the extensive menu interesting. I settled on the roasted vegetable omelette and found it to be unique, as it consisted of root veggies and not the usual greens, peppers, etc. My husband went simple-eggs, hash browns and homemade sausage patty. The fresh ingredients... More

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.
