I love that you can get a 1/2 order of Eggs Benedict. We were sad that there no longer appears to be any restaurant in Avalon serving Sunday Brunch, but the Cottage made up fo it.

Based on previous reviews, decided to have breakfast there this morning. Place wasn't busy so service should have been good. I think the reviews have gone to the management's heads. Omelet was awful. Egg whites and yolks not mixed up so it had clumps of both. When I requested one with the yolks and whites better mixed,waitress came back and... More

Terry is the best waitress ever!!! I asked our waiter for SOP instead of saying NO we don't have it he went to Terry to ask if they had any such thing. Terry came to our table and asked again to get a clear understanding and smiled nicely and said "no honey we don't, but what is it" I explained... More

Had the pleasure of having breakfast here with my friends. It was my first time to Avalon but definitely won't be my last. This is a great lil family restaurant. Terry, one of the restaurant workers, is theeeee best! She made our day. Great service, food and atmosphere!!!

Like all food on Catalina it seemed a little expensive but we also got the best portions and best culinary tastes at The Cottage. Our tab for a breakfast for 2 was $29 after I added in a $5 tip. The price was slightly more than another restaurant we had 2 breakfasts that had good potions but the food was... More

I have eaten here every time I have come to Catalina Island in the past few years. It is one of the first restaurants you come to when you get off the ferry. The views from some tables are great, and during the week I have never waited long for a table or my food. I recently went on a... More
