Cosy and tasty cafe
Posted on 06 / 21 / 2010
The Riverside Cafe is a veggie-friendly cafe tucked into the vaulted cellar of a building along the side of the River Avon, beneath Pulteney Bridge. It's accessed first via steps that lead down from the end of the bridge, then along a narrow-ish railed walkway set about 10ft above the river.
There's little space available inside the cafe, but they've maximised what they have, and created a snug, friendly atmosphere. Given the lack of space, they manage to provide a surprisingly varied menu with a good range of reasonably priced vegetarian options. The staff have been consistently friendly and helpful during my visits.
A couple of small tables are located on the walkaway outside the cafe, but these are only suitable for two people at a time. They offer a pleasant place to sit and look out over the river if you can tolerate the bustle of passing tourists.
good food, friendly, nice atmosphere
