The River Kitchen
A mainstay in the Hamilton foodie scene since 2007, The River Kitchen keeps a loyal following thanks to its firm stance on free-range meats, organic milk, local greens and herbs, and freshly baked goods. One look at the cabinet here and you’ll be caught in a decision making conundrum – the top layer a real sweet eaters domain with custard filled scones to cookies, to caramel slice to cheescake.
Bircher, relish and pickled produce are all proudly on display, and the team are big on using fairtrade chocolate, chai syrup and organic milk in all your hot drinks.
Sit in with your meal in the white weatherboard interior which looks through to the kitchen and the busy chefs in action, or opt for the street side seating where big sun umbrellas keep visitors cool on warmer days.
