This is a cozy old school diner-type restaurant that focuses mostly on breakfasts and lunches (dinner during the summer months). Lots of interesting photos on the walls of Dennis in the early 20th century, and bric a brac from a simpler time. The place is immaculate, the waitstaff are no-nonsense, and the line cooks are nonstop in full view of the diners! Breakfasts are exceptional. Spring for their signature side of Cottage potatoes/home fries, which are a delicious blend of red skin potatoes, onions, peppers, I think some meat (bacon?), and smothered in Hollandaise...indulgent and amazing, you'll want them again and again! Cash only. Be prepared for a wait, or time your visit in the "off-peak" hours...whenever those are!

My husband and I visited for a late Saturday brunch while on our babymoon. We are frequent Cape visitors but this was our first time here. Found based upon reviews and we certainly agree.

I had the classic eggs benedict with the RC home fries. Very good especially the slight lemon in the hollandaise. The iced coffee was also good on. Very warm day.

My husband had 2 cranberry-blueberry pancakes. They were good, big enough but not huge, could have eaten the 3rd. I enjoyed mine more than him but both were very tasty.

Would certainly return

We were BIG fans on the Red Cottage. We went for breakfast and the variety of options was impressive. Service was awesome— we had Debi who went out of her way to help us decide on our entrees. In the end, we ordered apple pie crepes, bananas foster French toast, and biscuits and gravy. The popover as a side was excellent. The gravy for the biscuits was very tasty, just a tad peppery. The crepes had the apple pie filling on top, not stuffed inside but were delightful nonetheless. And you absolutely cannot go wrong with bananas foster French toast. If you’re on the fence, just go for it! Parking was easy too, plenty of spots especially if you get there decently early.

The waitress was hard working and attentive. I have food allergies and she checked and made suggestions as to what I could eat. The food was delicious. The red cottage was packed the entire time that we were there. That says a lot for a business.
