Since 1960 I have been going to the Red Cottage. In the sixties it was a small grocery store, and grill, a forerunner to 7-11, owned by Miss Tilly.

Wow, this unassuming knotty pine diner is pretty darn good. The food counter and kitchen is high energy craziness as the staff prep some of the best diner food I ever had. The staff is great and the food is good. Not sure about normal hours, but Sunday brunch was very busy.

I LOVE this place. When we go back to MA to visit my family we always end up here for breakfast. The service is so friendly and helpful and the food is amazing! Nice homecooked taste to it that really warms your soul. You won't leave this place dissatisfied. Even my Pop who always orders the wrong thing on the... More

A small restaurant that is for breakfast & lunch, Counter seating is available, and a great seat to watch Chef Dan do his magic. Extensive breakfast menu, eggs, omelets, pancakes, waffles, and always changing specials. No reservations, sometime long lines, but well worth the wait.

Late Breakfast was just right. It's predictable. Great menu, excellent service, always good (sometimes outstanding) hot breakfast adding up to an excellent value. We think it is the best Mid-Cape breakfast place.

Atmosphere and service are just fine. On a snowy winter weekday we started out in a room of empty tables at 10:00am and by 11:00 there was a line...must be impossible to get in on summer weekends! Lobster Eggs Benedict great and the amount of food that came with my order of poached eggs - oatmeal, toast, hash, was remarkable.... More
