My wife and I wanted to try a new breakfast nook this morning, so we drove down to Milford and went to the Riverhouse Cafe. Just proved the old adage: better to stay with the devil you know... We had a 20 minute wait to be seated, which gave great hope for the upcoming experience. I was heartily disappointed. My... More

The best breakfast in Milford, New Hampshire. Hands Down!!! Everyone's like the farm to table menu choices including locally sourced eggs, sausage and Bacon. The eggs are cooked to perfection, mouthwatering hash brown potatoes... You can even get a Bloody Mary. This is the best if the best in Breakfast You will not be disappointed..

This place rocks. You can get the typical breakfast offered by most diners, or you can get one of their stacks. These are incredible creations where they layer a shredded potato patty on the bottom and then various delicious concoctions atop like baby spinach, avocado, pea tendrils, easy over eggs, etc. Or their homemade french toast is started with a...

We had intended on going to another restaurant for lunch and ended up at the Riverhouse Café just before closing in the middle of a nor easter. So glad we did, great coffee, best burger I've had in a very long time, the side salad was also fantastic, no iceberg lettuce here folks. French fries were crispy and the staff... More

Great place to eat, especially if your looking for a little change from your traditional breakfast fair. They do still have a good smattering of the usuals but love their twist on things like Eggs Benedict, using a nest of shredded potatoes instead of an English Muffin. Lunch options are great too with a number of different burgers and sandwiches... More

First time visiting this restaurant and if I lived in the area I would definitely come back! The food is really good and the menu is not so large that you get lost trying to find something to order. The only reason I didn't give five stars is two factors: 1) the lack of standing /sitting room while waiting for... More

We stopped while on an antiquin run for brunch/lunch. My husband had a salad that he said was incredibly fresh for December in New Hampshire. I had two eggs that were perfectly done, also wonderfully fresh, house made bacon and gluten free bread that was actually tasty. We dropped in during the time between Christmas and New Year. Was slamming... More

I visit The Riverhouse Cafe about once a month. I love a large number of very well-done items on the menu, and I appreciate the locally sourced ingredients. They serve craft beer here, which is also a plus. The service is very competent, polite and thoughtful, but it is always remarkably slow - so slow that we have had to... More
