Wonderful soups, wraps, sweet treats, and great locally roasted coffee and a nice selection of teas (Matcha!) Lots of GLUTEN FREE options!!!! Great meeting place!

I often go to River City for their great coffee but yesterday we went for lunch and I’d recommend it. We had a cup (seemed like a bottomless cup) of their daily soup, Paleo tomato was yesterday’s offering - excellent! We then shared a grilled...RCC sandwich, the chicken variation, which was loaded up with tomato, lettuce, cucumber and I think even avocado - generous, freshly made after we placed our order, and really tasty. With a couple of coffees this made a hearty fall lunch for a couple of seniors. As always, service was personable and friendly and the environment welcoming. Recommended.More

Visited here whilst on my holiday to see my Canadian friends. We had a packed day so stopped off here for some breakfast. I had a hot chocolate and a cheese and egg sandwich. Both very tasty and set me up for the day. My...friends also enjoyed there food and beverages. Loved the interior too, very humble yet hobo, and staff friendly and helpful despite them struggling with my British accent 🤣🤣More

9.00 plus tip for this micro panini, that was basically spinach and bread. Spinach was the last ingredient on the menu, it really should be first, and really large the customer knows the Athenian Panini is packed with leaves and stems. Thanks for nothing River...City Coffee. Afraid to come back and try anything else.More

Wow. Walked in and our order was taken immediately. While we were ordering, someone else came in and immediately someone stepped up to the counter to take their order. I had a 10 and a 13 year old with me and the gal was patient...as they made their minds up and gave them info to help make their decisions. We didn't have to wait long for our lunches and one of the women working in the back came out and hand delivered our lunches to us! She made a point to be conversational with the kids and friendly overall. When we got in the car, I was thrilled to see the amount of cheese on the kids' pizzas. My grilled cheese sandwich was excellent and though I am a cheese freak, the locally made bread outshone the three cheese combo in the sandwich. I LOVED it! Decor is rustically chic and the coffee was good. The outside looks like a cafe from the 70's, but inside it's all on point.More

Stopped in recently for coffee and a snack (and the use of their free wifi) while visiting briefly in Powell River. Service was quick and friendly. We liked their espresso beans enough we had them grind a bag for our continued enjoyment over the next...couple weeks while travelling.More

Regardless of how delicious the food can be, the lack of tact and customer service the owner has is appalling. Because of this I will never go back. In this case... the owner is always right and don't dare question them.

As soon as you get near the door you can smell it, and standing in line it drives you crazy, but when you sip that first taste of foam it is soooo worth it. Powell River has the best drinking water, but somehow that doesn't...translate to a decent brew for me, or other restaurants I've tried. This place is the exception. Never eaten here, but If the food is half as good as the coffee you'll be thrilled.More

Celiac's heaven. Allergies are taken seriously here and if you're gluten intolerant or sensitive or a celiac, the staff here take that quite seriously and will create a sterile prep table to eliminate any cross contamination. Also, the coffee is the best in town hands...down 👍👍👍👍More
