The food here was amazing. We had dinner and would love to try the breakfast. The clam chowder was spectacular!

A friend recommended this restaurant...our meals were DELICIOUS! It was difficult to decide because it all sounded so fantastic! There was a line but it moved very quickly. It was definitely the most we've ever paid for breakfast (cash only-bring a lot!) but we'll be back next year-a MUST!!!

We had breakfast at the Red Cottage a few times during our stay in the Cape. We ate at the counter which we really enjoyed as we got to watch the chefs and learn some techniques. Everyone was very friendly. There are so many options to choose from it was overwhelming. Everything was delicious!

I am a seasonal resident on the Cape and this is my favorite breakfast place in any location, on and off the Cape! I drive about 15 miles to enjoy the Chevre Scramble or the Plantation Breakfast, but there are many wonderful choices on the extensive menu. Many breakfast places don't serve strong coffee, but The Red Cottage serves both... More

We just found the Red Cottage after we recently bought a cottage nearby. In the last 3 weeks we have been here six times. It's been great everytime. Get the Truro. It's awesome.

Two separate chocolate chip pancakes were ordered. One was cooked better and had a normal brown tint to it. The other was pale and had stove grease marks on it. The fruit was good. But overall the experience wasn't too desireable. Yes, the place was packed but they didn't have any proper shading outside on the sun and there isn't... More

The Red Cottage has been our go to breakfast place for years, but several years ago Chef Dan started a dinner service, Wednesday-Sunday. Last night we visited "our friends" at The Red Cottage and dinner was true to form...DELICIOUS! We ordered the steak tips and salmon. The steak tips were tender and juicy, accompanied by an equally delicious sauce. The... More

I love this place. And my entire family loves this place! The food is phenomenal... Especially the bacon! Most of the time you'll have a long wait to be seated because there's a long line out the door (it's worth the wait)! Once you're in, there's a ton on the menu to choose from. Everything is good!! Love the decor,... More

Classic Cape Cod local "joint" experience with a wonderful breakfast menu. Our food was great, and at 7:00 on a Sunday morning, it was already packed with locals. They handled our large group with ease.
