This restaurant is located in "old" Littleton in an old brick house. There is also a nice outdoor patio in good weather. The food is excellent and they are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I've dined here at all of those times and the food is always very good, and often reaches into the excellent bracket. The menu is... More

This was our first time here and the staff were very friendly at the bar and at our table. The menu was very interesting and I had the scallops which were delicious. This is a family owned restaurant with a lot of character. Parking close by on a Friday evening was a challenge.

I'm liking Cafe Terracotta more and more, a few years ago I would say the service was painfully slow, but I've visited twice this summer and it is perfect. Not too fast or slow. Nice staff, the food is good, a bit pricey but made to order from scratch and very tasty.

I thought it was pricey and just okay. Parking can be a bit of problem in the area and the restaurant is not very large. I would give it a try but it's not one of my favorites.

The food wasn't bad, when we finally got it. It took forever (probably around 45 minutes to 1 hour) to get our food after we ordered. The waitress was fine, but the place must be understaffed in the kitchen and it was hard to hear each other talk in the crowd. It may be more likable when it isn't crowded,... More

People rave about this place..but both times I have been there, there isn't enough wait staff, and it is so loud I can't hear other people talk

Aubrey Baker is the general manager. He was the Sommelier at Del Frisco where we first met him. The first time we visited the Cafe Terracotta he greeted the people in front of us like long lost family. When he seated our guests and us, I asked they were old clients as well and he said no, they are 1st... More

My friend and I found this café by accident a few years back. It has become our favorite and anytime I'm in town, we are sure to visit. We went on Sunday for brunch and arrived at 11 AM. The line was already down the street. The wait was 45 minuets to 1 hour. I'm the type that will never... More
