Stopped in based on rating on TA and was very disappointed in the food. Waitress was very good, but food was subpar. I like to support local establishments, but I will pass on this one going forward.

We’ve eaten at South Fork Cafe twice now, and liked the good food and friendly service each time. We will certainly be back next time we’re in River Falls.

We stopped here for breakfast. Lots of menu choices and seemed like it was popular with the locals. There were families and business people here when we visited.

Good simple breakfasts in a small town café. Usually have an egg, bacon, toast and sometimes one pancake. Weekends have a breakfast buffet as well. Simple, low price.

This is a local place, lots of regulars but they cater to anyone, friendly and quick service. The food is very good and the prices more than reasonable. On Monday - Friday, they have specials for $3.99 with endless coffee a little extra. I have...More
