Great place for coffee. Try the hot oatmeal with blueberries with maple syrup. #1. Try the variety of smoothies. Great Breakfast, lunch, vegeterian options and coffee house. Several organic foods also. Great Staff. Nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We were in the area for a family wedding, and we found the Riverbend Cafe when I was looking for my daily latte. The lattes were delicious, so we returned for breakfast the following day. I had the breakfast burrito, and my husband had eggs with cheese and veggies. We both enjoyed our breakfasts, which were quite large. We would... More

Café was so relaxing and so cute. Indoors or outdoors. Indoors artsy and had just such a welcoming atmosphere. Even books and magazines for people to read. A little play area for kids to chill out. Outdoors it was like eating in someone's backyard. But somebody's really nice backyard. Very cool lots of vegetarian options

I have been going to this cafe for years. I love it. Deans Beans coffee. Vegetarian options. Great breakfast and lunch. Sit inside or outside. Many toys and books for kids to keep them busy... Or they can run around outside on the grass, like my 1 year old did! They have great menu choices for kids AND baby. Just... More

Called in for late lunch, no hellos from the staff, spoke to 2 members of staff who gave the impression that they didn't care if we ordered food or not, was told in no uncertain terms that if we sat out side they wouldn't bring out, food slapped down on the counter, and no goodbyes on leaving. Food was OK,... More

We only got drinks, so I can't speak for the food, but it was a cute place with a friendly atmosphere. Service was good. Definitely want to go back for breakfast or lunch.

I've had coffee and breakfast sandwiches/wraps here quite often. My husband and I wanted a quick, healthy lunch the other day and since it was sunny and warm we decided this would be the perfect place since they have a nice grassy outside area with tables. It's even nice to sit on the lawn on a blanket. I ordered the... More

Adorable place right off Rte 7, literally on the Housatonic. Good variety of well-prepared foods with a distinct vegetarian style. Eggs are fresh and delicious. My blueberry muffin was more blueberry than muffin (when was the last time that happened, I wonder). Three different "darkness" coffees (light, medium and dark), with beans to sell if you find JUST the right... More
