good reason it's so crowded

Seems there is always a line to get in. BUT it does move fast. Place is quaint, service friendly, very efficient without seeming to rush you. It has to have the best breakfast on cape for the money. The corned beef hash is better than mine !!!!! Irish bangers authentic. Everything... read more

Great options, huge portions and friendly staff. This is the best breakfast joint on the Cape as far as what I've experienced. It does get busy but that is indicative of its excellence. One of the few places in Massachusetts that I've found that offers a traditional full Irish breakfast. Way too many good menu options to recommend just one... More

Great food and service. Highly recommended if you are in this area. Parking is limited and you may need to wait to be seated as place is mostly full.

Family had pancakes, eggs, bacon and an ultimate breakfast sandwich. Everything tasted amazing and cooked perfect. service was fast and efficient. A little off the beaten path but worth it. 4 stars because a bit pricey for breakfast and no drink refills

We have been to the Red Cottage every time company visits ( a lot ) & whenever we get a chance. If they are busy it is worth the wait, food & service excellent! I love the Eggs Benedict Napoli & the homemade hash omelette ! You won't be sorry you picked this place!!!

Let me begin by saying I have dined here before. This is a little local breakfast/lunch place with a pretty good reputation. Therefore when my sister arrived for a impromptu Cape vacation I wanted to treat her to a little "local flavor" on her last morning here. The restaurant was bustling as usual and we chose to sit at the... More

Great spot for breakfast, it has a vintage Cape Cod vibe, decor includes numerous B&W framed photos of the old Cape Cod. We had a late breakfast, food was great (fantastic French toast). John our server was friendly and efficient. It does get crowded so expect to wait during prime time.

Having no luck of our own in finding a breakfast place serving lobster omelets (off-season yet), we turned to our hotel clerk for advice. He didn't hesitate to recommend the Red Cottage, saying if anyone had them, they would. He said it was a very nice, cozy, and friendly place. He was right on both counts. "Cute" my wife said...

Nice little diner place that we went to for breakfast. I shared the corned beef hash-wich with my wife and it was delicious. The has was browned and crispy and the bread was very good. My brother in law had the biscuits and gravy, which was heavy but delicious. The place has a nice décor and feel to it. They... More

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. Under new ownership, it has become the go-to breakfast place in the mid-cape area. A varied menu of omelettes, waffles, and other fare, would make any breakfast goer happy. The American... More
