We rented a house near the Red House Cafe. We walked by it every day and it was always busy from morning until night. Tried several times to get in but there was always a wait. We finally had lunch there and thoroughly enjoyed it. One person is our party has food allergies and the waitress couldn't have been more... More

I have breakfast at the Red House every Sunday morning, have done this for the last 5 years with a good friend. Food is wonderful and I can say consistent. My favorites are the trifle, crostini or frittatta. They also make a great hot chocolate. On cold days the fireplace is usually lit which makes a warm and lovely atmosphere.... More

The Red House Cafe is just two blocks from where I live, in Pacific Grove, and after seeing the Crab Eggs Benedict listed on their menu I decided to try them for breakfast. The Red House Cafe is an older building that has been well maintained and decorated very nicely on the inside. I was solo on this trip and... More

Easy menu full of good choices. Good fresh food. Attentive and friendly service... feels like Grandmas cottage. Very enjoyable. I'm going back for breakfast!

YUM, YUM, YUMMY!!! Been here over 5-times whenever in the area! Lovely old (red) Victorian home (circa 1893) repurposed as a restaurant (along with a non-associated garden shop in the side and back-CUTE!) with inside seating along with a porch for outdoor seating and side walk tables. Always crowded with locals for the delicious breakfast filled with all American classics... More

I get a little claustrophobic unless I sit outside, so I only frequent it on nice days. I've never been disappointed in the quality of the food & great people watching too!

After being underwhelmed by our hotel room, we managed to salvage our weekend with brunch on both Saturday and Sunday. Wonderful eggs benedict, french toast and coffee. Totally worth the wait.

Cook little place! We ordered the roasted red pepper frittata, which came with red potatoes that had a light dusting of Parmesan cheese. The texture of the frittata was delightful, and the potatoes were moist and savory. We topped it off with a side of the chicken sausage which was cooked perfectly and balanced the flavors of the meal nicely.... More

We returned three days in a row during our visit. That sums it up right there. All three days my wife and I split scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, bacon & sausage. It came with a soft, delicious French type of bread and a mild, flavorful salsa. We also added a very fluffy banana pancake. The staff was great. Wish this... More
