The building, is I think, a converted train station, with fun and funky decor and art throughout. Service is attentive and efficient. Terrific coffee and light meals and a varied menu that makes use of seasonal fruits and vegetables. It's a place not to be missed in this beautiful river town - the views of the river and bridge make... More

Menu is wonderfully different. Best Onion soup I have ever had! Spinach cakes where fabulous! Sat at a table over looking the Delaware river. Nice ambiance, great bake goods and locally roasted coffee!

Great little cafe on the river with character and great food! Must see and go try their fare. Great fresh food, inexpensive, fresh baked goods as well for the vegan, meat eater or gluten free diner.

Coffee, pastries and light fare. Swarmed with bicyclists on a nice day. A few steps from the Delaware River. Ample parking if you come by car.

They don't really do a breakfast other than coffee and muffins and such. But lunch is a great menu. Nice spot, "charming and cute".

We visited Frenchtown and stopped by this cafe for lunch. The menu is small, but nice variety and several specials. We sat on the enclosed porch overlooking the Delaware River and bridge to Pennsylvania We tried the black Angus burger- $13 (comes with fries). Realized that the cheese was a dollar up charge when the bill came?? I hate that!... More

Great way to spend the day is biking or walking the canal paths along the Delaware river on the NJ, PA side or both. On a recent loop along the bike paths we stopped in Frenchtown for lunch at the Bridge Cafe. The Cafe is perfectly located right along the path and has a nice selection of sandwiches and salads...
