River City Cafe is the backup restaurant we always go to. It's easy to bring the kids. Everything about this place is comfortable, the food, the seating, the music on the weekend, the staff. Everything here tastes good. Comfort food! Comfortable place.

The food was excellent and the service was good. They had a classical guitarist playing, which was very nice. The only down side was I thought the mimosas were very over priced at $5 for a small glass. Aside from that I would recommend

This is a charming little cafe on the edge of town. From the road, it doesn't look like much. You could drive by it and not even realize it is there. But inside it is quaint, and the food is excellent. The chicken fried steak...More
