The Rive Cafe is a food truck that makes simple food both deliciously and affordably. With wholesome foods and fast service, this is a great place for breakfast or lunch while you’re out.

Everything on the menu at the Rive Cafe is handheld, which is perfect for a food truck near the beach. Breakfast is offered all day, and includes options like Avocado Toast, Cuban Toast and a Breakfast Wrap. Lunch consists of five sandwiches that aren’t revolutionary, but they all have healthy, tasty and filling ingredients in them. 

For those who are gluten-free, there’s still plenty available on the menu as the truck has both gluten-free bread and wrap options. There also are enough meat-free choices for vegetarians to find something that they like.

The service here is courteous and prompt, and the prices are also good. Expect to pay somewhere between $7 and $9 for most menu items, making this one of the few places near the beach that you can get a meal for under $10.

There’s a reason sandwiches and wraps are popular for breakfast and lunch. When you want something that’s easily eaten while walking or biking along the beach, stop at Rive Cafe and treat yourself to an especially good handheld meal.

A few of our favorite menu items at Rive Cafe include:

Avocado Toast
Try the high-end toast that’s become a staple of special breakfasts. This version of Avocado Toast comes with fresh avocado, garlic olive oil, spices and sprouts on top of fresh Tuscan bread. It might just be the healthiest — and most delicious — thing you eat all day.

Breakfast Bagel
The Breakfast Bagel features all everything that makes this a standby morning meal. The bagel, meat, egg and cheese are all cooked to perfection. Some fresh avocado makes this variation a little different from the norm and particularly scrumptious.

Breakfast Wrap
Like everything on the bagel but don’t want a Manhattan donut? Get the Breakfast Wrap instead. Perfect for people who want to appear a little healthier, as well as anyone who’s gluten-free.

Cuban Sandwich
A long-time cultural favorite, the Cuban Sandwich features pork, ham and swiss cheese that get piled high. Pickles and mustard add some kick.

Grilled Cheese
Not your mom’s grilled cheese, the Grilled Cheese here is on seven-grain bread and features a medley of three cheeses. While perhaps not good for the arteries, it sure tastes good on the way down.

Insider Tips:
– While all of the menu items here are handheld and can easily be eaten on the go, there also is some seating available. The picnic tables offer a welcome respite from walking if you’re meandering along the beach all day.
– If you’re biking along the beach or in the area, there’s a designated place to secure bikes while dining here.
