We made a short stop in Aptos to visit with a friend we hadn't seen in years, and he suggested we have lunch at The Red Apple. I'm glad we did! My chicken sandwich was awesome! Tender, juicy, and done to perfection. Our server was extremely attentive and friendly. I love the small town atmosphere. If he hadn't suggested it,... More

Red Apple Cafe has the best breakfast; Eggs Benidict with country potatoes, waffles to die for. Come early on the weekend or you can expect a wait list a mile long. Outside dinning available.

The portions are a great size. The place is always packed in the morning, We sat outside and the service was just as good as inside. Took 4 13 year olds and they cleaned their plates! Try the muffins, very good!

My brother-in-law lives within walking distance and we all went over this morning for breakfast. Lovely shaded seating on the patio, my hunny and I shared the Portuguese scramble. Came with "famous" (tastes good) potatoes and toast (we had the marble rye). It was very tasty and we both walked away quite full. Most of their scrambles (think mixed up... More

My family and I went for breakfast this past summer. Here are my thoughts. Delicious food. Great service. Cozy atmosphere. Go, and go hungry.

One of the best breakfasts we've had. Superb food, huge portions, homey environment. Takes us back to yesteryear, when could find a restaurant that served "mom's home cooking." What more can one say?
