Red Cat has a great variety of good food, russian and international. It is always good and healthy. They have a great lunch menu for a good price. The carrot salad is to die for! The restaurant has a nice and friendly design and so is the stuff. I will come back again and again

A wonderful quaint cafe, spotlessly clean with no annoying cats. Only designer cats painted on the walls. Trendy! The food is delicious and beautifully presented. I will certainly return to this cafe. Thank you to the owners and chef.

Nice place for Eastern European food. Borsch highly recommend! Staff friendly. Service good. Will certainly visit again. Food very tasty and clearly made with attention to detail. Not just thrown together.

A place that reflect the characteristic of the manager. Clean, organized, wide selection of food, healthy and cosy. Russian oriented cousine, here you can find probably the best Borsh soup in town. Quality price it s a winner, for take away or eat there, your belly will be happy !!!

The meal I had at the red cat was by FAR, the best meal I had on my trip. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts was impeccable. Marian (the owner) creates a cozy environment so much so that you really feel like she and her family are the ones cooking for you and she would get out of her... More
