The entire menu is exceptional but we recommend trying the Quiche or the Smoked Salmon. Head out to the Island and at least pretend you’re on vacation!
The Riverside Cafe is a very well known breakfast and lunch spot. Owner, Geraldo Alberto Lima arrives very early every morning to have breakfast ready for the early birds by 6 AM.
