Perfect dinner date to impress

Cafe Terracotta is a cute little restaurant in downtown Littleton where food is actually thought out and prepared for you. I've dined there several times and they've always been able to accommodate my food allergies. While it's not exactly a "foodie" place, it's well above all the restaurants in the area. It's really a great place in the spring and... More

This turn-of-the-century Victorian home, turned restaurant, is located just a half block off of Main Street in historic downtown Littleton. It is small and cozy, but with some of the best food in Littleton. In good weather, choose an outside table, on the porch or in the gardens; the flowers are lovely in the summertime. The service is great and... More

My husband and I stopped here rather spontaneously as we were looking for a nice quiet lunch spot. This place was perfect. The service was efficient and fast. I had an amazing salad and my husband ordered the Ruben. They were both really good. I appreciate restaurants like this for lunch as they have great food in a nice environment... More

I was going to take my wife here for Valentines Day for their "special" menu. Hardly special at all. 90% of the menu items were the same as their usual menu. OK, I can live with that. But when you price out the special menu using their normal menu pricing it came out that they were charging about $50 more.... More

This is a very small and subtle restaurant. Don't let the size fool you as this is some of the best food around the area. Great environment and the only thing better than the food is the service.

Hearty and delicious egg dishes at Cafe Terracotta were just right for Sunday brunch with an unexpected blanket of snow on the ground. The latte was strong and hot, the bloody Mary had a decent kick and the service was warm and attentive. I'm looking forward to sampling C.T.'s lighter brunch fare on the patio outside once the weather warms... More

My husband and I have eaten at Cafe Terracotta twice in the last 12 months or so. Both visits consisted of superb service and excellent food. The restaurant is in a quaint, old Victorian house in Old Town Littleton. They have a wonderful front porch and garden for outdoor dining. Inside is cozy and charming. Service is really top notch,...
