My wife & I had dinner. We were fortunate to get a table without having an appointment. All walk-ins after us were turned away. I ordered the NY steak. It was prepared perfectly... flavorful & almost melted in my mouth. Everything was impeccable: food, staff, & ambiance. We had been previously, & it was an equally positive experience.

On a recently rainy night, my husband and I were looking for a casual dining spot and scooted into the Red House Cafe. It is an old cottage - with a real wood burning fire place - that greeted us and made us feel welcome. The small rooms were intact and offered a more intimate dining experience. My husband enjoyed...

Their lunch sandwiches are just plain wonderful. We were fortunate to be able to eat outside. A sunny winter day with delicious soup and salad just can't be beat! The staff is ready to help with suggestions and we just can't say enough about this charming cafe.

Cute place. Good breakfast options. Got a little crowded and noisy but in a family gathering kind of way. Skip the espresso drinks, not very good.

Had a great dinner here and warmed up by the fire. The staff were excellent. The only suggestion would be to have some more local red wines to choose from.

We had brunch here with family on New Year’s Eve. Fun surroundings with great food and suburb service. Being gluten free and not eating eggs makes brunch a challenge but wow they had a plate that was two of my favorites and it was gluten free. The Smoked Salmon on a Potato Pancake was served with Creme Fraiche, Capers, Red... More

A varied menu enhances the ambiance of the Cafe. Entry is into a dining room with a roaring fireplace. Several more dining rooms are available, with sitting outdoors on the patio available in warmer times.
