Unique choices, great service

This was a great find. Try to imagine how many people go out for breakfast while on vacation at the cape -- a lot. It's a small place but they skillfully move the crowd along they have a special from 6:00-8:30 to entice the early birds. [We were not among them.]. The food is delicious. Where in the... read more

A delicious breakfast! I had gluten free blueberry bread French toast, my husband an omelette with caramelized onions, and sausage, and my kids all had pancakes. Everything was delicious. We were there before 8:00 (kids are early risers), so we were seated immediately, and treated like regulars. Dinner and lunch menus looked great, too. My only complaint is that kid's... More

Wonderful place for breakfast/lunch. My older daughter thought the blueberry pancakes the best she had ever eaten. I love my chevre scramble, and my wife really liked the french toast foster. It is very informal and often has a line. Great food, great atmosphere, fun people.

Great food, reasonably priced. We recommend the 1/2 lb lobster roll or anything else on the menu. Food made to order. Just bring cash. No credit cards & no liquor license (as dinner is seasonal). Very good service, casual atmosphere. We'll definitely come back.

There is a reason for the wait. We arrived around 0730 and every table was filled and short wait line. Efficient service so the line moves along. We were offered a shorter wait if we sat at the counter. That is what we did ....we were seated behind the line cooks. Best seats in the house. We were entertained with... More

Went to The Red Cottage based upon it's stellar Trip Advisor reviews and came away a little disappointed, as the bar was set too high. Try not to go at peak times. We signed in on a Friday morning around 8:50 and were not seated until 9:40. This would ordinarily be fine, but parties of two (we were a party... More

The four of us stopped in for breakfast around 9:30am on a weekday. The wait was about 20 minutes; but by 10am, the wait would have been nearly an hour. The breakfast options are numerous and tasty. The service is friendly. The background noise is substantial but cheerful and tolerable, with no competition from music. Everyone who gets a table... More

Our 6th year eating at this restaurant and the key is to wake up early and get in by 8 am. If not you will be waiting about 45 mins for a table for 4. Not that you are complaining... you know the Red Cottage Home Fries and the Cinnamon Bun French Toast is worth it. The blueberry muffins are... More

Went with a large group and we had fast and friendly service as well as amazing food. Try the French toast foster- you will not be dissappointed.
