I have enjoyed several lunches at Café Terracotta. The food is always tasteful and well prepared. The service is always excellent and today was no exception. There are only two downsides to dining here. Because of its popularity, the restaurant is always crowded and can get very loud. The other issue is that I wish there were more vegetarian selections...

Café Terracotta is located off Main Street in Littleton in an old victorian house. The restaurant is lovely, great food, kind and helpful staff. There is usually a wait as this is a very popular local restaurant. If the weather is nice, you can wait outside! I have been here for breakfast often. This was the first time for lunch!

My wife and I recently went to this restaurant for a Sunday brunch. The service was excellent and friendly. The food was perfectly prepared and the cost was middle of the road for a nice establishment.

Nice place to sit a while and catch up with friends. Food is fresh and tasty, if not totally creative, and the prices are what you would expect.

We recently had Sunday brunch here with friends and the food was wonderful. They were very busy, but the waitstaff was attentive and efficient. The food came in a timely manner and was nicely plated. Be prepared for a wait to be seated but it's worth it.

I'll start with the bad news--parking can be a bit difficult, but once you settle that, you're in for a treat. The restaurant is small and very nicely decorated. A small bar area puts you in view of the kitchen. Plan for food on the expensive side, but worth every penny. I had the short ribs--they'd be "fall off the... More

We were with a group of eight, and Deborah did a super job of serving us. She was attentive, but not a pest. Most of us had the special of the night which was walleye pike ($29.00) and worth every penny. I had a Classic Manhattan, ($10.00) and wife had a glass of Malbec ($19.00) What a nice addition to...

Always great food and service. Love their breakfast and lunch menu. Haven't been there for dinner yet. Our friends said it's also good. Highly recommend!

We happened into Cafe Terracotta by recommendation from the EVOO Marketplace store. What a nice small place for good food. We did inquire about the brand of Gluten free bread they have, and unfortunately it was the brand that we just don't like and could not justify paying an additional $3.00/person for it. We opted for the breakfast with no... More
