Had the Sand Dabs and Salmon was absolutely wonderful. This place was very cute and great service.

We had crab cake salad and smoked salmon on potato pancake, and both were very good. The restaurant is in a cute Victorian style cottage.

Delicious! We sat on the patio and had a yummy breakfast. I had the cinnamon brioche French toast with marmalade butter. It came with syrup but it doesn't need it. I asked for a side of chicken apple sausage and roasted potatoes to go with and the salsa that came with it was quite flavorful. My husband had the ham Benedict on an open faced croissant and he loved it! He's very picky with his Benedict's and he was not disappointed. When offered coffee, I asked for an oat milk steamer. They didn't have mint but offered lavender and it was so tasty. Excellent service to boot!

Where was everyone on a gorgeous, sunny day in December? Red house cafe usually has a line out the door on weekends. Everyone must be getting their last minute holiday shopping in! I called ahead and was pleasantly surprised when they said there was no wait for a party of two. Perfect since we were starving! - Fresh squeezed orange juice: Quite bitter, so this was a bit of a letdown. 2.5/5 - Calamari steak sandwich ($15): Awesome. The calamari had a slight chew, loved the panko crust. All the fresh veggies made the whole sando come together. I especially liked the caramelized onions and chili aioli. Huge portions too. I could only finish half the sandwich. The orzo salad that came with it was so good! Wish there was more. 4/5 - Smoked salmon on potato pancake ($15): My friend ordered this. (This would never be my order, as I'm not fond of capers or salmon). I did try a bite and was pleasantly surprised! The crunch from the potato pancake along with the smokiness of the fish and the tang of the red onion and capers went really well together. 4/5 Julie was our server and was so sweet! She checked on us regularly and happily accommodated our requests. Indoor dining available, some covered outdoor tables on their patio, and for now they also have set up some tables in the parking lot area. You can't go wrong with Red Door Cafe!

I love this place!! I've only ever done takeout but they have your food ready pretty fast. I always get the Salmon Pizza which is delicious! I wish the pizza crust was more toasted as it sometimes looks undercooked. The price for it is very reasonable as the size portion is just perfect for one person and filling. 10/10 recommend trying it

When asked where I'd like to go for breakfast while in that part of Northern California, I said, "somewhere delicious." Little did I know what was in store for this visit. Walking up to this place, the outside looks like one of those awesome homes you'd live in as a kid that would later be transformed into THE spot where you go for your favorite meal. Once my friend and I were seated we placed our drink orders. The waitress was welcoming and said the fresh-squeezed orange juice was amazing. She was not lying. DEAR LORD, it was great. What she surprised me with was the coffee. Holy smokes. The coffee they serve is THE BEST I've had at any restaurant, which says a lot seeing there's a spot in Reno, El Adobé Cafe, that is on-point. Veering. We placed our orders. Much to my surprise, we didn't wait long. My friend ordered the crab Benedict and I had chorizo and eggs. Looking at the pictures I added, you wouldn't know it but everything was perfect. The flavor of the chorizo mixed with the house-made salsa was also a delight. I've said this many times in the past about dining out but the only downside to the meal is I didn't have enough room for everything. The silver lining, they give you two tortillas so I made a burrito for later in the day. The next time you're looking for an incredible breakfast spot in Northern California, make the drive to this place. I wish I was there as I type this review. The staff is great, the food is incredible, and the atmosphere makes you feel like you're at home. I look forward to coming back here. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Cheers to everyone!

A great stop for breakfast or lunch! Very satisfying meal and excellent service. As the restaurant itself is technically inside a house, space is a bit crammed. Only downside is the bathroom windows - if note closed properly the outside could see in?

We got here at 9:30 on Sunday and there was no line so we were seated right away. We were seated inside, it's very small but has a cozy vibe. Service was great. One thing I appreciated was the food didn't take long! The eggs Benedict was on a croissant bread instead of usual English muffin. Good but my favorite was the potatoes because they were soft and crispy at the same time! Also enjoyed the country breakfast - came with a little salsa for the egg and the side of bread tasted good. They also gave us a complimentary biscotti!! How nice

Located in Pacific Grove and came here for breakfast. Dining indoors is small and limited with some patio and outdoor dining. We had the chorizo and eggs and the frittata with potatoes. Both dishes were excellent with just the right amount of seasoning. Highly recommend for breakfast and brunch. We came during the weekday so it wasn't too crowded. Parking is available on the street.

Their pancakes were big, thick, and very yummy. The scrambled eggs and red potatoes were bland but cooked perfectly. The toasted baguette slices needed butter. Coffee was strong and yummy. I'd eat here again.

Stopped by hoping for a quick breakfast before the aquarium and only had to wait in line for 15-20 minutes to be seated! Super cute interior, feels like a house that was converted into a restaurant space. The food was also super good and was definitely generous with the serving sizes for the price point! All of the employee's are also super welcoming and check up on you often! We got the crab cake benedict which came on a croissant, half an order of the French toast with fresh whipped cream + strawberries and the chorizo and egg that came with two tortillas (we added the avocado on top

Great place! Get there early or prepare for a wait. The chorizo and egg breakfast was delicious and the coffee was great too. Everyone was friendly, and our glasses were always full.
