Reviewed July 20, 2014

If you are looking for a wonderful hometown café and soda fountain in a small town, this is the place! The lunch menu includes soup, sandwiches and salad. They offer an old-fashioned soda fountain with a wide variety of ice cream including sorbet! The food is delicious. The owners run the café and are very friendly; making everybody feel like old friends. This café is well worth the 15 minute drive south of Bellevue, Nebraska.

Stopping in the River House Cafe is like a step into the romantic past. The bar, mosaic flooring, and many of the fixtures date to the 1920s or before, and the overhead music adds to the charm; it had been a long time since I'd heard Louis Armstrong's 'West End Blues'. I had a fine sandwich and a great chocolate malt. The glass-and-mixer portions of their malts are enough to satisfy two people, and the person I was with said it was the best malt she'd ever had. The sandwiches were solidly above-average, too; I only regret that we were too full for the pie. This place has earned a solid spot on my short list of places to recommend.

We went here for lunch as it was one of the stops on the Nebraska Passport for 2014. We ordered a half-sandwich and a cup of soup which was more than $6.00 and a half-sandwich with a bowl of soup which was over $7.00. The place wasn't busy but it took half an hour to get our food after we ordered. How long does it take to make a sandwich and scoop some soup into a cup and a bowl? The food was good when it finally arrived but the soup could have been warmer. The bathroom trash can was overflowing. The staff was very nice and friendly.

A great spot for lunch in Plattsmouth. Have an old fashioned fountain soda and ice cream too! Open for dinner on the first Friday each month.
