We love breakfast at Ida Red's. And so do our grandkids. Especially if we can eat outside like we did on our recent vacation in Saugatuck. Their omelettes are outstanding; and the kids ate up their oatmeal. Can you beat their coffee? I don't think...More

Great little spot for breakfast. Waiting list fills up quick on weekends for sure. Try to snag a seat outside as it is a better experience than inside. Great french toast, killer blueberry pancakes (because, well, Michigan blueberries) and a wonderful scramble. Only down side...More

We had a wonderful breakfast here. The wait staff was very friendly and nice. The outdoor seating area was very comfortable. We enjoyed our meal and the surroundings but we did have a long wait for a table on a busy Saturday morning.

Description
Since 1986, Ida Red's Cottage has been serving Made-from-scratch breakfasts and lunches, year 'round. Our little place is a busy one, and our kind of cooking takes time, so expect to have to wait, sometimes a long time, during the summer season.
