The Red Cottage was like stepping back in time. A classic restaurant/diner that served up huge portions of delicious food. Even the “sides” were practically full meals! Great service, great food, great history.

Cozy, home-style, but extremely busy. Be sure to either: be there 15 minutes before opening or plan on at least a 30 minute wait. Also, parking is very limited. However, the wait and inconvenience is well worth it.

Basic good, but very good. We went for breakfast 3 or 4 times. You can sit at the counter with no wait, and don't let the parking or people outside stop you - they might have a large group. We had 2, and never waited....More
