You remember the show Happy Days? Hamburgers and fries served at a booth with a juke box at the table! Visit the Riverside Cafe and you may just hear the Fonz saying "Hey!" At any rate what you get is good home cooking and a very simple menu. Just looking at the pictures of the cars on the wall and... More

Good, simple breakfast. Nothing too fancy, but definitely satisfying. Prices are decent. Service is great, all the employees are friendly. Have come back multiple times!

This café is in the mostly residential Riverside neighborhood, but is definitely worth a visit. The prices are good and service is usually top-notch. We typically come here for breakfast on the weekends, and there is commonly a short wait for a table. They have two dining rooms with a mixture of booths, tables and bar seating. The pancakes are...

Restaurants that are still around after 60 years speaks for itself. We had vegetable beef soup and steak fried chicken sandwich. The waitress was super friendly and chatted with us almost the whole time we were there. She takes a sincere interest in her customers.

Just basic home style cooking. Service is good. You will leave full. Everyone was friendly. The man who takes your money at the front is always pleasant and greets you with a smile.

Had the opportunity to visit the Riverside Cafe on a recent visit to Botanica in Wichita. What a great find! Can't believe I've been going to Wichita for years and no one told me about this place. It isn't no posh, ritzy place, but when you walk in the front door you are transported back to a different time -... More

They've been in this location for awhile and the restaurant really hasn't been updated. It feels as if you've stepped back to the 1960's or 70's. We stopped in for breakfast. The food was good, nothing really special. Service was friendly and attentive. Many customers there were likely regulars as it seemed the staff knew them pretty well. It's a... More
