The title about says it all. We only had ice cream and drinks on a crowded weekend morning arriving after most people had breakfasted. Queued up for the eats and placed ourselves at tables inside rather than sitting outside overlooking the river. The signs are full of "homespun" philosophy, the young women who serve and man the cash register, are... More

The view next to the river is very pretty but the cafe has a limited menu, prices high, not as clean as I expected (but that was just a quick walk through to eat outside)...service mediocre. On a hot day it took too long to get drink delivered. Have to pay $1.00 for refill of iced tea ! Never heard... More

Have been here a few times because my Aunt likes to sit and remember lunches with her husband. I have had the chicken sandwich and hamburger which were OK. The staff is very nice and helpful and the location allows one to watch the river go by, as well as the many variety of dogs being walked. They also have... More

I came here with my family over the Easter holiday, which consisted of a party of 6. We stumbled upon this restaurant which was a great little find in Frenchtown - although I'm sure locals would say that its a pretty easy place to find being right on the river and next to the bridge which is the major thoroughfare...

Never have I had a bad experience with a restaurant but this place take that. Went Bridge cafe for lunch with friends and The employees there saw us waiting to be seated and didn't acknowledge us for a good 10 minutes (when there was plenty empty table and was not busy at all). Finally when we got seated the waiter... More

I had a chicken club sandwich for lunch. The chicken is hard, chewy, dry and bland, like it's been cooked twice over the day before. The burgers and the soup were ok. The cake for dessert was dry and tasted old.

As we sat talking at our outside patio seats, awaiting our meals, the chef was observed picking tomatoes from the vine in a small vegetable garden near our table. The grilled shrimp Greek salad plate was so good and fresh we came back a second time to enjoy it again. Homemade hummus, fresh greens with cucmber, a variety of ilives... More

Have been to the Cafe a few times for take out coffee on weekends, but had my first sit-down dining experience there yesterday -- mid-week lunch. It was during the heavy rain we've been having here the last few days and being that Frenchtown is a river town and prone to flooding, I was even afraid they wouldn't be open.... More

This is not a fancy place. Good for lunch but I wouldn't recommend dinner. The best thing about it is the location. Nice view of the river.
