Janie's Riverview Cafe A Little Bit Of Home In Buffalo, Iowa

This journey I’ve been on for over a year now to bring my reviews to every local restaurant has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. I meet folks, shake hands, bump fist, laugh and learn a little of their story so I can craft mine. If you drive too fast you might miss this quaint little stop a long the river, and that very well maybe a mistake. Home cooked styling and hearty plates will make you feel right as rain.
