Northshore Riverside Cafe – Hamilton

Posted on Mar 26, 2011 in Foodie Reviews

I was a bit hesitant on telling you about Northshore Riverside Cafe because no one really knows about this Hamilton gem yet. I discovered this superb bistro through a close friend of mine. Working in Hamilton, I didn’t even know what lay beyond the Hamilton industrial area myself. Most of us are familiar with the Portside restaurant precinct in Hamilton, but have you delved down Macarthur Ave? Well I recommend that you do.

Every mouthful I have experienced at Northshore Riverside Cafe has been sensational. The views are great and there’s a real sense of peace and quiet here.  Now you’re going to hate me because I guarantee you’re going to be hungry once you check out the meals I’ve had.
