We came here for the Brunch Buffet. We really enjoyed it, breakfast items of eggs and bacon, sausage and ham, pancakes, eggs Benny, there is soup, salad, fruit and a desert bar. You won't leave hungry here. Staff was great too.

A real experience. Firstly it is in a pretty location right on the river. It's quite small and very popular. The food is good and they offer a buffet as well as a menu choice. Mein host tells a story of history at the end of the evening, which is very entertaining. Only negative is that we had to wait... More

Great little place. I have driven by numerous times and it was finally this time that my soon-to-be wife and some friends dropped in and we are so glad we did. The view was fantastic, the food was fantastic, and the host was fantastic! He told us some history around the place and treated us like family. I had the... More

This is a lovely cosy atmosphere with good service and tasty food. We all went for the buffet which was brilliant. Children under 6 are free. Children up to a certain age (can't remember if it's 10 or 12) pay $1 per year of age. We definitely got our money's worth with main, second round, desert and hot drinks all... More

The owners of our Bed and Breakfast recommended the Riverside Cafe, so we knew it would be good....they were 100% correct. I ordered the buffet for both my visits and could barely walk I was so full. The food tastes like home cooking. The desserts were amazing. If you're lucky enough to get a table right beside the Fraser River,... More

I and my young teen needed a place for dinner and Riverside Cafe was recommended. The location was beautiful and serene on the outdoor patio next to the quiet river. Beautiful. There was a buffet that was offered which was more food than we wanted for the cost. The only other thing they offered to order was a hamburger or... More

The chef here makes an amazing Sunday brunch - a must if you're in the area or staying at the campground/lodge! I recommend eating outdoors on the patio that overlooks the Fraser River & a great mountain view

I ate here twice on my vacation, on the way out and on the way back I extended my drive in part for a meal here. For supper there are two mains offered which include the buffet or you can just have the buffet. The first time I ordered the ribs. They were fall off the bone juicy -- the... More

We ate dinner here 2 times. We ordered off the menu the first time and got the fish and chips. I would only rate them average but we chose the buffet the second time and found it to be excellent. I am not a fan of buffets but this one was surprisingly good and the desserts were wonderful. I rated... More

Great Service, friendly people and an incredible Chef! The Buffet is amazing after a Hike on the Berg Lake Trail/Mt.Robson. The Cafe is situated on Fraser River banks with excellent view over the river to Mica Mt. and parts of the Premier Range!

Cozy Licensed Riverside Cafe with Fireplace and Patio on the banks of the Faser River. Everything homemade with nightly specials. The only riverside dining on the Fraser River, very popular with the locals. Magnificent views of the Cariboo and Rocky Mountains. Watch the Salmon spawning in the protected spawning grounds in front of the cafe in August. Also patio BBQ's and firepit weiner roasts in summer.
