Went for breakfast on August 21, 2015 with my husband and grown children. The place was full with nearly an hour wait at 10:30am. We waited and it was worth it. Everyone found something to enjoy. My husband especially loves the hazelnut crepes and my daughter happily requested a special order of banana pancakes with nutella. They have special breakfasts... More

I am completely gluten free and not by choice. My husband saw their menu on line and we decided to give them a try. The restaurant seemed very nice. There was a line of people waiting to be seated. We asked to see their menu and saw the term " gluten friendly" and decided before we sat down to ask... More

We had an excellent breakfast at the Red Cottage Restaurant. We went on Saturday morning in the midst of the weekend rentals turning over (the worst possible time to go anywhere on the Cape). The breakfast was worth the wait! Our family ordered the Lobster "Benny" Benedict, an omelet with their famous popover and corn beef hash with eggs. Our... More

This restaurant has been around for years. It serves delicious breakfasts with many varieties of pancakes, French toast, egg dishes, and wonderful popovers. It also serves lunches with delicious sandwiches and salads, and lobster is on the menu for lunch and dinner. Prices are reasonable and portions are very generous.

My family and I want to breakfast before they had to head back to Pa. We all enjoyed it. The food was wonderful and the menu was great. Lots to choose from and not a bad choice any where. There was a little bit of a wait as it is popular but definitely worth it.

Excellent breakfast on Cape Cod. Popovers were a welcome surprise, as I love them. Had the popover filled with egg and cheese, it was delicious. Popover was light and airy with great flavor. Had another one plain too. Home fries were just okay, but I am not a big fan in general. Croissant sandwich with sausage egg and cheese was... More

We walked right in and were immediately seated at about 1:15 (any earlier and I'm sure we would have had to wait). The menu has so many healthy choices. From previous visits I know management uses as many fresh ingredients as possible; unusual for a diner type eaterie. Be sure to try the French toast, you won't be disappointed. I'm... More

I tried this place out based on reviews on this site and it exceeded my expectations. My family party of 7 adults and two extremely cranky toddlers had a 15 minute wait for a table at lunch which seems reasonable given the size of our party. It actually took less time then said and we had a good table for... More
