Friendly staff in a homey atmosphere. Old photos of Cape Cod and memorabilia on shelves around the ceiling. Usually very busy but you don't feel rushed when you sit for your meal. Great food with options for special diets.

I can't visit the Cape without having breakfast here! Some of my favorites are the Bananas Foster French toast and the Cherve and chive scramble. Hot coffee, fast service and great food make this a must stop. Just know, it's not a secret and you will probably have to wait to be seated. But do. You'll thank me :)

Cinnamon bun French toast combo (Mashpee perhaps?) was Excellent as was the Harwich combo my Fiancee had. The hashed browns, the eggs, out of this world bacon all Excellent! The Chefs did an Amazing job. We sat at the counter and were astounded by their teamwork and efficiency. Highly recommend.

One of our favorites for pancakes on the Cape - they often have different kinds such as pumpkin in the fall and always Cranberry - love them! YUM - not a cheap breakfast spot, but tasty food and worth a visit!

M husband I visited The Red Cottage twice during visits to the area this fall and winter. The service is wonderful and the prices are reasonable. The menu can be a bit overwhelming - it has pages and pages of delicious sounding breakfast options. We have tried the eggs benedict, home fries, crepes, French toast, bacon, ham and fried eggs....

Everything about this place is great (except the wait). Great for kids. Great staff of locals who get to know you, great ambience, and fantastic good. Popovers are fantastic, alone or stuffed with gas, lobster, whatever. Usually gone by 10, so get there early. Corn-beef hash is home made, lean (for hash) with a lot of flavor. Not a bland... More

We were down the Cape during the week before Christmas visiting with family and friend and the Red Cottage was recommended to us. We looked it up online and it had so many wonderful reviews. It truly lives up to its reputation. Great food with equally great service. The menu selections are varied and inviting. Some recall our favorite meals... More
