Great food in a laid back atmosphere. If you are there in the summer, check out the deck. The coffee is first rate too. Service can be a bit slow, but everything else makes up for it.

This visit was a spur of the moment idea, after a great hike at Frontenac State Park. Unaware that it was River Falls festival weekend the main street seemed a bit busy with no parking places to be had. So my friend and I parked about 1/2 block away on a side street. A short walk later we were at... More

A few people mentioned getting horrible service, but that hasn't happened to me yet. Maybe things have changed since they've eaten here. I like going to the Dish and the Spoon for lunch because they have great sandwiches and a cute atmosphere. There is a shelf with games that you can take out and play if you go with friends.... More

And who wouldn't? This Main Street cafe is a cosy, friendly place to get good coffee, freshly made sandwiches and home made cakes and desserts to die for. At sensible prices!! With comfy chairs, good wifi and multiple charging points. And staff will talk to you and make you feel welcome. This local business deserves to succeed. Why would you... More

Not sure why this place is called a café, because it isn't. It is a small town non-chain coffee house that happens to serve a few items from a cold case that they reheat. The atmosphere is quaint and homey and it smells wonderful, like a coffee shop should. The air temperature is too cold and drafty, so bundle up... More

Visited this charming main street cafe where the food is made from scratch. I had the amazing Stuffed Pepper soup with a grilled sandwich. YUM!! I also had a triple chocolate scone that was wonderful. I will visit again when in this town.

I have enjoyed every service Dish and Spoon has to offer. I enjoy the coffee at the diner or via the drive through. I especially enjoy the "S" Word Carmel Macchiato when I want to indulge. The breakfast menu is delicious and has options for my friends who are gluten free. I used the catering service for a work event... More

Charming, unique cafe featuring delicious coffee and smoothies and great, freshly made soups, frittatas, sandwiches, and so on. Can be slow, especially during the M-F lunch hour, but that is because it is so popular with the locals.

I really try to give this place a chance, I have gone in many times hoping it would be fixed. The new sign for Wood fired Pizza was intriguing. The sign was the highlight, the pizza was disgusting. River Falls needs a great little restaurant and selling the Dish and Spoon to someone who knows how to do that would... More
