Good breakfast - big portions

We stopped here for a nice breakfast on the way out of town. It was pretty late in the morning so it was not too busy. They offer seating either inside (pretty noisy) or outside in the courtyard. We went outside. The tables and chairs were pretty cheap and shaky but they did the... read more

Neither I nor my family have left wanting more food. They have a great selection of omelets, pancakes, and assorted egg dishes. But when you walk in the door take note of the daily specials - about 50% of the time I forgo the menu and select a special.

We stayed at Seacliff beach which was beautiful, but the stop at Apple Annie's was one of our highlights. We were told by one of the locals to try this place and we are so glad we did. The freshest most delicious chicken fried steak my husband & I have ever had and we aren't youngsters. ;) The bloody Mary... More

Located above the CVS in shopping center, once you find it you will be amazed at just how large the menu is, including several daily specials. Great food at reasonable prices. Bacon and their signature potatoes are both excellent, as are many of the scrambles. They also have large outdoor seating area on nice days.

I don't understand the recent reviews criticizing this place. Even tho' we live in Scotts Valley, a real journey down Hwy 1 on a Sunday, red Apple Cafe has never disappointed us. I usually get the lox platter or lox and eggs and this is difficult to find anywhere else in SC. My husband got the make your own omelette... More

I have lived in Aptos for 16 years and would not recommend the Red Apple Cafe to anyone. On Easter Sunday, we ate at the Red Apple Cafe for the last time. My wife tried to order eggs over-medium and the cook failed miserably 3 times to get it right - first two attempts were grossly undercooked (yolks were cold... More

My spouse and I were looking for a place for a quick snack. We noticed the Red Apple Cafe that was one flight up from the parking lot. We had a cup of tea and a warmed raisin swirl bun. The entrance is a bit of a mess, but the dining area is neat and welcoming. There is an attractive... More

If you're looking for bacon and eggs or an old-fashioned omelet, or maybe a BLT, this is the place. Very down-to-earth standard American fare.

Big menu. Lots of interesting choices. Portions are huge. I tried the king salmon benedict. Too salty. Potatoes were okay. My spouse got the crab cake benedict. Also average. Was really hoping for an amazing breakfast. Pancakes were standard the Applewood smoked bacon was solid. No real reason to go back, but I suppose they deserve another chance.

We stumbled up the hill to the Red Apple Cafe as the Chinese place we wanted to visit was closed - good for us. Standard American Cuisine with a flavorful twist and all-day breakfast choices did not disappoint. This restaurant is certainly worthy a visit, although it won't be top on our list either. The service was fair, but the... More
