Food is ok, but don't go there during the slow afternoon hours. The owner sits at the table closest to the front door like a pasha, barking loud advice across the room to the young women who work for him ("watch what Iris does, see how hard she works?" that sort of thing) and drumming loudly on the table along with the piped-in music. Can you imagine that sort of obliviousness when customers are having lunch at adjoining tables? Not going back.

We love Frenchtown and we love the Bridge cafe! Great location -right on the banks of the river - and the menu is varied and delicious, including all of the ice creams and desserts! It's casual dining but it's just what we're looking for when we're out with the children. Wait staff are always very pleasant and the food arrives in good time even when the place is busy. A pleasure to eat there and we'll definitely keep returning!

We visited for a late lunch on a Sunday. This restaurant has a prime location near to the hiking trail and river bridge on the main street,
Pleasant atmosphere in the covered area off the main cafe, though would have been better to have not been seated right next to the "not an entrance" door that everyone used as an entrance and exit!
Food - Croque Monsieur - interesting taste but the bread was a bit thick and doughy. French fries should have been cooked at higher temperature as they were a bit soggy, Overall combination was quite plesant though. Mint tea was fresh and hot - well done.
Service - the greeter was a bit offhand. The waitress was efficient. It was a bit strange that when things are quiet some of the waiting staff sit in the main cafe and play cards - not sure if they were on duty or just hanging around!
I guess the price was fair for what we received, but with no more cost the value could be better - its the attention to detail that would put this restaturant up a notch,

Wow - what a lovely afternoon! The food was delicious and perfect for a family afternoon in the sun in French town.

Didn't feel rushed but also didn't have to wait too long - perfect really!

Only thing is the Puds looked out of this world but I resisted :)

if you are a picky eater, this might not be the place for you, but as a foodie, I think this place is great! I've been there in the Spring & Summer & both times I was able to enjoy outdoor seating. The service is great but if you have a large party... be prepared to squeeze in! It's located right on the DR Canal Path in Frenchtown & there is a bike lock up near by. you can also park in the lot down by the bridge & walk up...
Great little place with a view of the water, good food & somewhat reasonable prices. Def. will visit again
