First we went to Max Grill and walked out because we waited 15 minutes for service. Then we were recommended this place by a couple on the street. We were so happy. Food excellent, service superb and we were waited perfectly. So cute and adorable. Highly recommend. Soup was awesome.

Went for lunch at the recommendation of the B&B we were staying. Husband doesn't like gourmet food so had the hamburger and it was ok. I ordered the Calamari salad and it was outstanding. The best calamari I have ever eaten, lightly breaded, cooked perfectly, and the salad with mixed greens was the perfect side.

We have visited this cafe three times during our past two trips to Pacific Grove this past year. Unique food selections like roasted red pepper soup, butternut squash soup, camembert cheese appetizer, and ollalieberry pie with creme fraiche and fresh berries. Dense texture holds its contents together and has just right amount of sweetness. If I could only have one... More

This is a great spot for lunch or dinner. Just look for the Red House on the corner in downtown PG. The locals love it, the food is always good and the outdoor patio is nice to use in good weather. Enjoy!

With a short wait for an outside seating table in front, my family, dog and I enjoyed the view of a downtown parade on a mid Saturday morning. The waitress had an awesome personality, was very friendly and had a recommendation in detail-if wanted-about everything on the menu. The food was amazing and by far the best breakfast we had...

My family and I had lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. We had two adults and three children. We were seated immediately at a table next to the bathroom. There is no wall or space to separate the toilet from the restaurant, so lock the door if you gotta go! The restaurant gets a nice ocean breeze which keeps it... More

Dropped by for lunch and had the half soup, half sandwich and the wife a Poetrabello MushroomSandwich. We were both satisfied with the service, ambiance and the food. Not great, but very good.

They are so friendly in this charming place, and the coffee is excellent. Had a fabulous frittata one day and a huge breakfast sandwich on a croissant the next. Their red potatoes with Parmesan are delicious. Lots of locals, too--always a good sign!
