The River Daze Café is locally famous for its breakfast and lunch sandwiches, all prepared with sustainable organic ingredients, including homemade sourdough English muffins and fresh produce grown at the owner’s own farm here in town. Enjoy coffee or beer alongside sweet and savory brunch entrees like their wild albacore tuna melt or waffles with bacon bits cooked right into the batter.

The New York Times – April 06, 2014
River Daze Cafe is the place for a huge build-your-own sandwich ($11.50) with homemade bread and fresh organic soup ($3.50 a cup), or all-day breakfast and free refills of 10 Speed Coffee ($2.50). Walk it off with the locals’ favorite 10-minute workout — a few laps up and down the Second Street stairs (also known as the Stairs). Begin at the corner of Second and West State streets and head up 400-some steps to the ridge above town where, at the end of Second Street, the Indian Creek Trail offers a longer walk with views of the namesake Hood River, as well as the valley’s ubiquitous fruit orchards, and the greens of Indian Creek Golf Course.

Gorge in the Gorge – March 21, 2014
Our friends Carey and Miranda opened this fantastic cafe! Hood River has been short on great lunch spots so I’m thrilled there’s another option. They are making fantastic sandwiches on freshly baked bread served with house made pickles! My favorite so far is the Turkey Melt. They also serve breakfast sandwiches on house made English muffins, bagels from the Hood River Bagel Co., house made waffles, coffee from 10 Speed, and locally made beer. The meats they use are hormone and free of antibiotics, and the veggies are local and organic. Stop in for a fabulous breakfast or lunch.

A perfect place to enjoy and receive a good hearty breakfast or lunch is tucked away inside Mall 202 on the corner of Second Street and Cascade Ave.
River Daze Café is now open for business.
Co-owners Carey and Miranda Bray decided to take over the former eatery (previously known as Sage’s Café) to demonstrate their passion for food and to provide the community with fresh, high-quality dining.
Many locals in the community may remember the once existing café. However, the Brays have completely renovated the place and have created a whole new look.

Hood River Buzz – March 13, 2012
Miranda Bray says she’s looking forward to producing a quality breakfast, with “lots of plated desserts, pastries.” She’ll make it all herself, based on recent experience at Knead, a lot of self-instruction at home, and the two years she worked at a bakery right out of high school.
Her husband, a longtime fixture inside the Double Mountain brew crew, had been general manager there when he left last year to farm their property in the Snowden area. He built a couple of 50-foot greenhouses, and started producing heirlooom tomatoes, basic, beets, carrots and other veggies.
