We were working on a photo shoot in East Sandwich and were looking to feed a crew of eight for breakfast and lunch. Kathy and her team at Riverview put together a lovely breakfast/coffee (at 6am) and lunch assortment for us. The entire staff was extremely accommodating, friendly and proficient. Our food was delicious. We had an extensive an complicated... More

Attractive, comfortable, casual atmosphere. Good coffee and good food-primarily sandwiches and pastries. Have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. You order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table.You serve yourself coffee- as I said, it's casual. Friendly, polite staff which include students from The Riverview School. There is a thrift store next door... More

I had the turkey, stuffing and cranberry sandwich. It was wonderful. It made me feel good too. It is a great concept that the schools students can work in the cafe to learn a trade. I also saw supportive mentors.

We have eaten here twice and loved it both times. The sandwiches here are original and they are they are very good tasting. One time the service was very slow and today it was extremely fast. Allow plenty of time and if it is a speedy day, you can look at the thrift shop next door. Both times we were... More

We got a quiche, which was 7.95, very small- just about enough to share, but very tasty. We also got a muffin and some bagels to go. Also very pricey, but tasty and chewy. Not bad overall.

Not too sure where the river view is but we sat on the deck all the same and enjoyed a lovely coffee and a cake. The staff were very friendly and helpful and it looked like the venue had plenty to offer in the way of food and drinks.

After walking out of one other local cafe because of its unprofessional atmosphere, we searched and found this adorable, roomy cafe. The staff was spot on! Cathy, clearly in charge made sure that the line moved quickly and efficiently. She took time to check in the dining room to make sure everything was ok. The bagel was so fresh that... More

We had a breakfast sandwich with ham and the belt with jalapeno infused bacon. Both were very good and it's nice to still have breakfast options at lunchtime. There were some great looking cookies and muffins but we were too full to partake.

I went for lunch on the way back from the cape with my wife because she insisted that I try the Riverview. While there is no view of the river (canal), she was right on about the food. We ordered the same dish when reading about the spicy BLT. The jalapeno-infused bacon and avocado did it. The crispy bacon was... More
