    Take a Bike Ride on the Rail Trail

    by marca Updated Oct 21, 2003

    Ride south (downstream). If you have the time and ability you can ride the trail all the way down to Lambertville. The trail runs between the river and Rt. 29. I recommend going as far as Bull's Island State park and picnic there or cross the pedistrian bridge into PA for lunch. The trail is cinders (not paved) and the road bed gets bumpier as you near Lamberville.

    Lovin Oven: Kind of a Hippie Place

    by marca Updated Mar 29, 2016

    Located in what appears to be a large garage, this place offers a large seletion of gluten free and vegan selections. Many options are locally sourced. Check the web site for daily additions to the regular menu. They have a patio out front for outside dining when the weather is nice.

    Check the website for evenings that they are open for dinner.

    Be sure to check out the eclectic gift shop around the back of the building!

    We happened to visit most recently (3/26/16) when it was Restaurant Week in Frenchtown. I chose an option from the 'price fix' menu while my wife had the burger off the regular menu. The staff brought enough utensils to share the appetizer and dessert with out asking.

    Favorite Dish: I always enjoy the soups here.

    Cafe Maria: Great Italian place outside of town

    by marca Written Dec 28, 2015

    We have stopped here several times now and have never been disappointed. The small dining room is staffed by friendly and helpfull people that enjoy working here, They seem to do a good takeout business. We have not tried the pizza but intead go for a lunch or dinner entree. Be sure to save room for their gelato! BYOB

    Favorite Dish: I usually go with one of the pork specials or the spicy sausage with peppers over bow tie pasta.

    River Blue Cafe: Good Reasonable place in Frenchtown

    by marca Updated Oct 20, 2015

    We have stopped in the River Blue Cafe for lunch or dinner several times and always have enjoyed our meals. The best thing is to go in nice weather and sit out on the porch. Nice people(and dog) watching! I usually go with one of the daily specials. BYOB

    Ride on the Rail Trail

    by marca Written Apr 4, 2008

    Frenchtown makes a good start for a ride on the Rail trail which runs along the river. The bed is level but it is not paved(packed cinders). I have been on this trail many times using a road bike with wider tires with no problem. Road bikers may want to ride on Route 29 and go south of town. This is a level road with wide shoulders. If you do not have your own bike with you, good rentals are available at the Cycle Corner bike shop in town. Most of the ride will be in the shade with a view of the Delaware River. Good family ride.

    Equipment: Bring water, snacks and a spare tube. There are no services until Bull's Island Park and then again in the town of Stockton.
