Stopped here for breakfast on a weekday business trip. It's clearly frequented by the businesses in the building and nearby which makes it a little confusing for someone brand new. Had to look around a bit for a menu and couldn't find a restroom easily. Overall the service was good and friendly and the food hit the spot. I had... More

An ideal location to meet for breakfast or lunch. Food is always good. We arrived just in time for breakfast. The three-egg omelet is huge! Very delicious.

My husband and I stopped by this place twice for quick lunch and we were delighted both times. There Red Onion Soup and vegetarian soup were amazingly tasty. We will come back if we visit Racine again.

I have been here for breakfasts and lunches and must say I prefer their lunches. A few notes on the breakfast items: every time I order the quiches they are dried out so I have given up on that for good. I have had one of the morning "specials" which happened to be a Door County Cherry Cheese Stuffed French... More

This downtown spot is great for a quick bite. Their forte is soup, but all of their offerings are good and the prices very fair.

Went downtown for a shopping spree and breakfast at the Red Onion. Delicious omelet and cafe au lait. Great atmosphere. Will be back.

Recently visited for 3 to go orders. Service is not fast. Waited 30 minutes for 3 sanwiches. Upon leaving, I said, the soup is in here, right? I was then told you have to get it yourself. Someone might have explained that when I placed the order. Turkey and tuna sandwiches were good, but not outstanding. Grilled cheese was bland,... More

I have been stopping in here for over a year now and never had a bad experience. The service is always fast and friendly. The food choices are great and the daily specials are perfect. They have a great soup and sandwich choice with normally 2 soups and chili in the winter time. The food is made fresh and comes... More

We were looking for a great place to have breakfast in Racine and came across The Red Onion Café. The building it is in is really pretty. It is a bit unique as it doesn't have servers, you order at the counter and they bring the food and drinks out to you. The BEST breakfast around using the best ingredients.... More

I was a little hesitant to try Red Onion because it looked like a trendy little cafe but the food and the atmosphere is anything but. I had the Cuban Pork Sandwich and my date had the BLT. Both were excellent with fresh ingredients. The house chowder was superb. On a previous visit I had an omelette and it was... More
