The River Cafe to open first site in 37 years

The River Cafe is preparing to open the River Cafe Cafe later this week, marking its first new establishment in 37 years.

The River Cafe Cafe is positioned mere steps from the original establishment, which has been serving patrons since 1987.

The River Cafe Cafe will offer an Italian breakfast featuring River Cafe brioche, cake, melon, and peaches, followed by plates of prosciutto, mozzarella, and seasonal vegetables as the day continues.

In the evenings, guests can enjoy various aperitivos, non-alcoholic cocktails, and wines by the glass, complemented by homemade crisps and Italian olives.

During the summer, the Cafe will serve zucchini and grilled peppers, while the winter menu will include roasted pumpkin, squash, and borlotti beans.

Additionally, ice-cream coupe specials, River Cafe desserts, pastries, and Italian hot beverages will be available for takeout.

Founded by chefs Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray in 1987, The River Cafe has become a culinary institution, influencing chefs like Jamie Oliver, April Bloomfield, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, and Sam and Sam Clark.
