I loved this place. Very good food, charming, friendly service, and a fun place to people watch. I would go back every day!

We followed the advice of other TripAdvisor visitors and visited this simple cafe in the heart of charming Pacific Grove. The staff and the food were welcoming and pleasant. We all liked the salads, others enjoyed the mussels, Polenta and Portobella and the Salmon Pizza. The home made deserts were a hit with everyone in our party. Pricing is fair and certainly good money for value. This is not a tourist destination but whether you are a local or visiting we think you will enjoy it.

Red House is a casual, homey place with great food. We were a little perturbed when we arrived, so no one greeted us. After finishing her chat with other diners, the waitress seated us. I had the pork tenderloin and my companion had the portobello mushroom with polenta, both great. The server was friendly at that point. The desserts were fabulous. if you don't want to put on make up and fancy duds, this is your place. There is dining out on the porch too.

We stopped in for a light dinner at the Red House Cafe. This place is popular with the locals. My husband and I split a caesar salad and the crab cakes. Both were excellent. There were two good-sized crab cakes on the plate and they were so flavorful. Just right for us. The service was excellent. We'll be returning again when we are in the area.

Good "homey" feeling atmosphere in adorable little cottage. The food is tasty. Salads could be more exciting (I like a big salad for entree) but nice still, if not spectacular. I like the chicken parmigiano.Hated the coconut pie, yuck! but, the cookies were great. Often they have a wait time as this is one of the best values in town with the most atmosphere, unless you're looking for ethic style food (great food and value to be had at An Choi, Thai Bistro, and Petra's Mediterranean restaurants). If you want fish go to Passion Fish (a little inconsistent unfortuanately and you'll want to have a reservation as it's very popular).
