Stopped in for lunch and was under impressed. Tables were available outside, but the weather was damp and cool, so we opted to wait for inside. We were told it would be 20-30 minutes, when we spied an empty table near the entrance way. Our...More

I had potato soup that tasted like warm vichyssoise--delicious. The pear and walnut salad was ok; i asked them to leave out the bacon and I wonder if it might have been a key ingredient. All in all, our group thought the food was a...More

I ate here several times during the summer, and the deck setting near the river is great. The food is delicious and they make excellent cocktails.

We had lunch here, recommended by several locals and they were right! Farm to table goodness, simple foods that I felt good about eating. Choice of eating inside or on the patio. Loved it.

Found this cute cafe on trip advisor. Beautiful waterside seating. Lots of fresh local foods, beautiful salads, and since heartier fare too. We had the pear gorgonzola salad and greek salad. Very light, actually would have liked some protein on top. Dressing just a bit...More

I know the head chef at the Storm Cafe. I contacted him and this he says the menu should be on their webpage. In addition they run specials on the weekend. Let me know if this helps.
