Portions are huge and they continuously refill the coffee. Haven't had a bad breakfast here yet. Would be perfect if not for the bathrooms.

There are only two places in the GR area that are 5 star breakfast places.....and the Red G is one of them. Great omlets and skillets. Generous portions and great coffee. You will not be disappointed!

I really appreciated that my friend took me here for brunch one day. It was a hearty breakfast where everything seems just a bit bigger and better. PROS: - You will feel full. - The food is made well, and it is tasty! - The food is not overly expensive. - The wait staff is welcoming and efficient. CONS: -... More
