You feel like you're in a quaint little restaurant in a small town. Fun decor. Wonderful items on breakfast menu. I had fruit, yogurt. Yum. Great staff.

Limited but very tasty breakfast menu. Staff is fantastic (especially Angela). If you are in town or off to the beach early it is worth stopping in for a bite

Nice, simple menu, not fussy, not overpriced, and just a lovely place to score lunch while you're passing through Pacific Grove. I appreciated the friendly service as well.

Both small and Large plates are available as well as fresh soups and homemade desserts. The apricot-walnut chocolate chip cookies are especially good. Try the Red House for a unique... More

We walked about 10 minutes from Lovers Point Inn to this lil gem. It is absolutely adorable. It is a little red house with fireplace and all.
