What a happy coincidence! Environmentally responsible food that tastes great! The Riverhouse Cafe serves local farm raised meat, dairy, and veggies. The playful menu of great brunches such as "The Pig Pile", "Bird's Nest" and more describes hearty servings of sausage, bacon, cheese, eggs, vegetables with and without gravy and vegetarian dishes as well. I'm a big guy but a... More

Weekend stop at RC for breakfast and the expected wait was in place. Luckily seats were available at the counter so we seated without a wait. RC has a menu that provides entrees that are original and well thought out. We decided to order from these options. The dishes meet the expectations of their description with one criticism. According to... More

The Riverhouse offers a fantastic menu leaning away from the ordinary. Listing the farms that produced the food is a nice touch. Everything I have had there has been wonderful. My favorite is the Riverhouse Benny. If you would like a meal you won't soon forget, stop in to the Riverhouse.

I had the Smokestack Burger (Vermont Cheddar, House Bacon and Tomato Puree) with fries. My wife had Biscuits & Gravy with sausage. My burger was very good and the fries were outstanding, if not best in the area. My wife said her breakfast was less than she hoped for and the sausage was bland. We were there at 11:30am on...

My family and I were looking for a place to eat brunch one Saturday and tried the Riverhouse Cafe. If we were looking for a quiet place, we would not have enjoyed the atmosphere. Instead, we were able to enjoy the bustling activity and variety of conversations that come with a small, popular breakfast / brunch diner. Waitstaff were attentive... More

I stopped here while passing through town on business. The staff was very friendly and the men you had plenty of choices. The food was simply outstanding and was well worth the visit.

From the outside- it didn't look like it was even open. We saw a Parton walking out when we were heading to another place to eat! Sunday lunch time; didn't wait too long. We heard the locals comment that their hollandaise was out of this world so my husband choose their special. I had the grass fed burger. We both... More

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..
