This is a nice spot to go for a comfortable coffee, specialty tea or perfect cakes, cookies etc. to have with your coffee. Average prices for a specialty coffee bar but nice being on the corner with the river in the back. You can take your coffee and sit on the waterfront trail t enjoy.

Great place for fresh quality soups & sandwiches. Clean, nice atmosphere & friendly staff. Small restaurant so not good for large groups. I've been there several times & it is always dependable for a good lunch. There is a view of the river & outdoor patio for nice weather days.

The food is excellent, great homemade soup-chicken noodle being a favourite, delicious fish cakes. In the summer they have a lovely salad plate. Great lasagna.The Gang at the Riverbrake are so friendly and efficient.

This is a great find. The food is amazing and the restaurant and patio clean as a whip. My only negative observation is they are not open on weekends. They also serve a great breakfast. Staff are happy and professional making it a comfortable environment.

The homemade soups here are the best, each lunch I have had here has been unique and delicious. Looking for a great place for lunch you will not find a cleaner more comfortable cafe at which to share food with friends, inside or on the patio.

First visit here was this morning. Sort of a weird set up as in coffee is self-serve which I don't mind at all but I'm totally not used to! Our server also made our breakfast. We were the only people in the restaurant at 930am on a Tuesday. Breakfast was good, I asked for no toast so they subbed in... More

Excellent Customer service!! People here are nice and friendly. Food is pretty good for the pricei The ham and jam on my plate appeared lower quality then I would have expected for the exceptional clean atmosphere.
