Don't know where to start. I just need to tell you don't miss this place. I have never had anything that wasn't wonderful. Eggs, waffles, French toast----all wonderful, just don't forget the bacon. I have never had more delicious bacon. yum

We have spent many years on the Cape and never tried The Red Cottage. What a mistake! Wow this was one of the best all time meals we have had on Cape Cod. We went in the off season so there was no wait - we walked right in and had our choice of tables. I had one of the... More

This little out of the way restaurant is best known for it's tasty breakfasts. They have outstanding homefries that I could have for my whole meal. The menu isn't expansive, the food is good, but my wife is turned off by the floor that always seems to need to be swept.

Great place for breakfast, but be prepared for lines during the busy summer season. Menu is expansive, something for everyone. Homey feel with friendly staff. Walls are decorated with pictures of the area during the mid-1900's.

I absolutely have never tasted bacon like theirs. It is almost glazed or something.. I can't quite tell. You will just have to go and find out! Our waiter was very sweet and attentive as well.

Very good service and excellant food with a lot to choose from for breakfast. My sweetheart had the bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich which was served on a sandwich sized Thomas' English muffin! I had the eggs, bacon, and home fries and both were very tasty!

We had a lovely breakfast and were able to reminisce about the past while having a wonderful breakfast at the counter. The food was done to perfection and the wait staff was fast and efficient. We had a great experience and this is a must see when you are at the Cape.

This is a must try restaurant! It has the most delicious food with great service. Everyone is so friendly and it has a cool setting. I wish we had more time in the area to eat here again. We definitely will eat here again if we visit Dennisport, Ma again!!!!

I know this is going to be one of those places I'll be going back to again and again. A. maz.ing breakfast. I know there's more on the menu than the ham, baked beans, poached egg, and Boston brown bread "Puritan," but I spend my entire year thinking about when I'm going to get to have it again. Great service,... More
