The River Kitchen philosophy is simple, we believe that life is too short for generic eating experiences. Food should represent where you are, it should reflect the nature and flavours of the place it was grown, raised, cured, harvested, prepared, served and eaten.
We want our food to be a window into the honesty, hospitality and agricultural splendour of Waikato; and as a celebration of the river that gives it its name, its life and its flavours. That is why we are called The River Kitchen. As much as a reflection of who we are, it’s a promise from us to you.
We serve great coffee, and make sure locally sourced ingredients go into all our breakfast, mufins, scones, brioche, lunch, home made cakes and slices. We have fresh salads and a cabinet menu. The best cafe in Hamilton.
