Ordered the crab cake and chowder combo. Both were very delicious. The wait staff was very friendly and efficient. As an appetizer each table gets "johnny cakes" to eat with butter/maple syrup. This is a nice, old fashioned touch. Only negative is they don't have a liquor license so you can't get a glass of wine or a beer. The... More

We've been to the Red Cottage for their delicious and abundant breakfast but this time we enjoyed dinner. We were driving by and noticed the sign "Dinner tonight." I'm so glad we did because each of our family of 4 had a great meal. The restaurant is cozy and it filled to capacity - good thing we arrived early at... More

We stopped into the Red Cottage for a late lunch. This is a typical cape diner style restaurant. The menu has a large assortment of eggs Benedict dishes that are intriguing. Our group tried the corn beef hash and the crab cake bennies and enjoyed both. Corned beef is house made. It was exceptional. The crab cakes sliders were delicious.... More

Two yummy chocolatey crepes drizzled with raspberry sauce and served with eggs toast and home fries. No chance of leaving here still hungry. They serve delicious lunches and dinners as... More

Great breakfast and superb lunch. The food is wonderful and the choices are many. They're now open for dinner too! Friendly waitstaff, fast courteous service and ample portions. Too numerous to name all the menu items. Even gluten friendly! We'll be back often.

Breads are excellent in all the sandwiches and the breakfast menu is extensive. I felt the cinnamon sticky bun French toast was a bit soggy but... More

A shouldn't-miss spot for breakfast in the Dennis area. Recommended by a local, so we went in hyped. Not disappointed. Retro, small-town diner feel. Packed in like sardines. Noisy. Packed parking lot overflowing to the streets on a summer Tuesday morning. Don't miss the special potatoes with hollandaise and peppers...very good. Coffee could've flowed a little more readily for my... More

There was a line of families but it was just my wife and I and we were seated immediately at a table for two. She got the regular french toast and I got the "Cinnabon" french toast. It was all...
