Where can you get both at lunch and pronounce them perfectly cooked? At Red Cottage, of course. Wife and I had a great lunch there today. Not surprising, this "diner-like" restaurant is a high quality staple eatery in Dennis. One of the best on the Cape for American gourmet diner food. Service is fast, friendly, and efficient. Breakfast served all... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant for many years primarily for brunch- a brunch to die for!! If you arrive after 9am be prepared to wait- but the line moves fairly quickly. Lunch is just as good. But dinner was a very pleasant surprise. Adequate menu. They served us pre dinner cinnamon pastry-yummy! The table pads were like a local newspaper... More

First things first...bring cash. This place doesn't accept credit cards. They have an ATM in the back, which I was forced to use, but this is clearly less than ideal. I went in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised with the old time feel, the quality and speed of service and the generally good experience all around. I ordered a... More

Went in for lunch with a friend, 3 servers were chatting and ignored us. We asked about seating and were told sit anywhere. We sat and waited very patiently to be addressed. Five minutes and still carried on their personal conversation. We were surprised we weren't asked if we wanted to start with a beverage while we decided on a... More

this tiny restaurant requires some patience as they are always busy but definitely worth the wait. from the home made breads, pastries and hash to the imported irish sausage and ham, not to mention the baffling menu variety. the friendly service matches the fabulous and delectable food. don't miss this one

If you haven't been you have to go. We sit at the counter when we can, it is great to watch the chefs. My daughter is working her way through the specials that are named after towns on the Cape. My favorite is the biscuits and gravy with two eggs.

Based on Yelp reviews we chose to have breakfast here during our stay on the Cape. We were SO HAPPY, I love a good breakfast, I love eggs, and I love breakfast sides. I loved that their menu had so many varied egg meals so you could get pretty much exactly what you wanted. The place is super cute, there... More

I have been here numerous times and always find something new and exciting to try. Of course the Red Cottage home fries are a must as they are loaded with goodies like ham, mushrooms, tomatoes, and Hollandaise sauce. Their menu is large and ever evolving, there is a large number of gluten-free items as well. There are tables but also... More

Visited with my Mom and had an awesome full Irish breakfast. It was missing the mushrooms, but is the closest I've seen to an authentic Irish breakfast since I was in County Cork. the two eggs, tomatoes, home fries, scone, sausage, black and white pudding were reasonably priced at $13.99. My Mom had the eggs benedict with fresh spinach for... More

The Red Cottage decor is setup like a Diner from the mid fifties. The direct view of the cooking area and the memorabilia from the surrounding area, old pictures and the like is really great. While the ambience is great what matters the most is the quality of the food. I got the Big Ben breakfast sandwich and a side... More
