You feel like you're in a quaint little restaurant in a small town. Fun decor. Wonderful items on breakfast menu. I had fruit, yogurt. Yum. Great staff.

Limited but very tasty breakfast menu. Staff is fantastic (especially Angela). If you are in town or off to the beach early it is worth stopping in for a bite

This place is great! It is a converted old house and the food is great so is the service. I recommend the frittata but everything is delicious.

Nice, simple menu, not fussy, not overpriced, and just a lovely place to score lunch while you're passing through Pacific Grove. I appreciated the friendly service as well.

We don't eat here often because it can get crowded. Chris and his staff will give you great service and the food here is unique. Just try the Salmon Pizza! Both small and Large plates are available as well as fresh soups and homemade desserts....More

The Red House continues to be my favorite place when in town. Their breakfasts, lunches and dinners are all amazing and it's as charming as can be. It does get busy at times so there may be a wait, but it's well worth it.
