Friendly staff, unpretentious, well cooked food. Just the ticket for hungry sailors and visitors to the marina.

Unless you're a local you may miss this one. Hidden in the local marina you'll find cafe riva. Non-pretentious and homely, great for a Saturday morning hangover cure or an impromptu lunch. Crackin' coffee into the bargain

Visited on Sunday 11th June for tea and scones after a trip to the food market. The cafe was busy but staff were friendly and welcoming. Scones were lovely. We live locally but always forget about this wee cafe. Will definitely return again soon.

The staff cannot do enough for you, really friendly and always smilling. The food is always fresh and never a disappointment. Quite a small place but always worth a stopover.

Ali Nardini at Riva does the best French toast with bacon on the side that we have ever tasted! Also an extensive lunch and snack menu available in this tiny oasis within Kip Marina, on the Riva. Lovely friendly staff.

Cafe Riva offers a relaxed environment with plenty of parking, serving breakfasts all day, snacks, freshly made espresso coffee and cakes. A stylish new outlet, located in the magnificent Kip Marina the cafe is named in homage to the classic Riva Aquarama speedboat first built in 1962, its classic lines, mahogany hull, sheer beauty and speed evoking an era of by gone elegance and impeccable taste. Take time out and cast your eye over the impressive yachts or sit outside and people watch as they tend to their boats. On those crisp clear days why not walk or cycle along the many picturesque seaside paths, admiring the views and spotting wildlife. By the time you reach us at Cafe Riva you'll have earned your hot chocolate and marshmallows! Or if you're feeling especially daring try one of our famous Milk Shakes outside in the summer sun. The cafe is closed on Mondays.
