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

Cozy little breakfast and lunch place overlooking the Souheagan River. Creative menu featuring local meats, eggs, syrup and bread. The chef is amazing and the staff is superb! Try everything!

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

I moved away from NH a few years ago and was happy to visit and have breakfast here recently! Love their breakfasts - SO MUCH FOOD - and SO GOOD! So many different creative choices - lots of unusual dishes/combinations. We had 1/2 orders of the Haystack - along with a side of raisin toast - I can still taste... More

There for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Arrived a few minutes before 9, before the rush. Impressive menu - creative twists on breakfast with lots of options for fresh, locally-sourced food (pork, eggs, etc.). Coffee was excellent, with frequent refills. Service was friendly and efficient. Three of us ordered one of their cheesy hash brown creations with eggs. All our... More

Had a nice relaxing breakfast here on a Saturday, which is nice because many places on the oval rush you and get quite rude if you don't get in and out as quickly as possible so they can turn tables. The food was incredibly fresh and delicious and the waitress was extremely nice and helpful. What more can you ask... More

Our party of four ate three different dishes with my husband and and I splitting eggs and sliced corned beef (hash not available). The couple with us are locals and ordered their favorites. All meals and coffee very good and service was excellent. This is a busy place and I would not count on a river view seat unless I... More

No matter how busy or what day the food and service is always consistently great. It's a unique blend of typical American diner and local creativity. They also offer on the menu locally sourced Foods like eggs and bacon, my favorite is the homemade Corned Beef Hash, yes not from a can.
