I work next to Red House Cafe and always see it full of people eating but rarely have the time to go there myself. I accepted a friend's invitation to go for lunch on my birthday. Frequently having smelled the aromas wafting from the place I was excited. The staff are friendly, the wait staff wonderful and attentive. The food,... More

We sat on the sunny side terrace. Had a simple breakfast of oatmeal (DH) and I had toast, poached eggs and avocado. Coffee and tea. Great service - good food, what more can you ask? Loud party kept us entertained, wished they'd had a volume switch! Will return - next visit always a pleasure to eat good food presented and... More

Nice people and good food. A real winner. Try the pancakes or omlettes. We have eaten here several times and it's very consistent.

I'm a diabetic and I just left Toasties Cafe for Red House! Best decision ever. I wasn't being accommodated for my diabetic diet, so I went to Red House. Not only did they accommodate me, they assisted in finding something I can eat. Alexandra also has her own dietary restrictions and she was so responsible in finding something that works!!... More

I just finished breakfast here, first day of this part of my trip. 3rd trip in 4 years for the Jazz Festival, and I always enjoy breakfasts at The Red House! Never a bad one. And service is outstanding. A favorite for me is the Brioche French Toast with strawberries and Applewood Bacon. And conversation across the aisle was a... More

My only complaint was that it was cool and breezy outside (we had the dogs with us), but that's PG in September, I guess. Alexandra was a great, interactive server. All four of us had different items, 2 brekkie, 2 lunch, and all was devoured. Just a great time, great setting, excellent food. We'll definitely be back!

Breakfast, brunch, or lunch ~ we love the food and ambiance. Service can be iffy but worth the flavorful food.Be sure to try their cookies or better yet take home half dozen to share. Love the cute watercolor cards they sell too of the building. Hope they stay in business for a long time! We've tried other locations for similar... More

We were there for dinner and were happy that it was not crowded inside the restaurant given how close the tables are to each other. Lovely, lovely server but the food was not. Our meals were unappetizingly presented and even that would have been OK if the food was good. We ordered the roasted chicken (definitely not roasted), a salad... More

I've been here twice now. Once for breakfast and once for dinner. Both times I've enjoyed the ambiance, food and service.
