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...

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

Love this little Cafe Terra Cotta. Wonderful food. Dining outside is the best as it is very hard to hear inside.

This is a subtle location in house in the old part of Littleton. Plus factor is that there a parking lot, but you most likely will need to ask for location. The dinner hour on weekends can be quite lively, meaning noisy, since it is a house, but the porch seating can make for more intimate conversation. It is a... More

Love at first sight! From the early century brick house complete with several decks and patios, beautiful flowers, paintings inside are amazing, modern kitchen with the best chefs, low lights inside, staff is super, and food is terrific, and try some of the homemade cinnamon raisin bread! I had mine French Toast style! Best place for quiet get togethers.
