Breakfast, lunch and dinner. A short wait for seating for brunch. The crab Benedict, warm mozzarella & tomato sandwich and the grilled cheese were generous portions. Friendly and fast service. A cozy locale where both locals and tourists hang.

Perfect littme cosy place for a relaxed romantic dinner. The waitress was very friendly and service-minded. I really don't have anything bad to say! It's a great cheap alternative to the pricy places along the Cannery row

Our hotel manager sent us here for the fancy grilled cheese sandwiches. They were great! Had artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes. Yum! A great atmosphere and would go back often if we lived there. Thanks!

We took my elderly father to lunch here while visiting him in Pebble Beach, and his initial comment was "its a girly place" to eat. Not so, as it was packed with guys & gals. Seemed like a locals crowd too. Our lunch was outstanding along with the service. Try the dungeness crab cake salad combo as I would come... More

Red House Cafe is so cute. We went on a Tuesday morning and had a short wait. Was looking forward to going here on our vacation to Pacific Grove. It did not disappoint. Great french toast and a wonderful frittata. Service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely return.

Located in a converted old house that still retains the flavor of the original home, serving a decent variety of tasty food and great deserts with genuine friendly, attentive service. This is a great change of pace to the noisy hustle and bustle type restaurant in quaint Pacific Grove.

This was a great little place to celebrate Father's Day. Customer service was impeccable! I called an hour ahead of time to let them know we're on our way and we had literally a 3 minute wait when we got there. Friendly & smiling faces of the employees too. I only give this 4 stars instead of 5 because I... More

Wow! You walk in to a chorus of big smiles and hellos. Breakfast was so good. We both had salmon eggs benedict. I saw fresh fruit being served all around me, good coffee, wonderful eggs. They are open for dinner, looked like a good wine selection too. Located in one of the oldest buildings in town

We went on recommendation of the front desk staff at our resort. Apparently they offer a crab cake benedict on the weekends that isn't available during the week. I had to settle for the frittata which was good but not what I was looking forward to. I gave them an "average" rating because they do not have the variety offered... More
