The bf and I went to the River Cafe over the summer and had a nice brunch on their patio when the weather was still nice and warm~
Look at this nice sunny view from the patio!
Some tea for my brunch!
Organic honey for my tea!!
We ordered the fish and game board to share. The board comes with house made crackers (the basket in the back). The plate from left top, candied trout, steelhead lox, pickled carrots. The middle row has some rillettes and duck paté with a little bowl of brassica mustard. The bottom row has house cured bison, Sylvan Star gouda, and some cranberry crackers.
Very simple and elegant presentation:
These homemade crackers were perfect with the board, very crisp and complementary.
We also got a supplementary basket of fresh baked muffins and pastries for $9.00.
In the middle is a chive scone, which was the best of the bunch. Next we had half a piece of lemon poppy seed cake each:
This one was actually super delicious as well, a plum danish. I love danishes.
The waiter forgot to bring this when he first dropped of the basket of pastries, but we got them in the end. A cherry perserve and a apricot perserve:
The preserves were great.
I would definitely recommend going to the River Cafe, it has a very rustic atmosphere, and it’s gorgeous in the summer. I’m sure it’s a great place to be in the winter as well, I’ll have to make my way down there this winter!
