Always go when in Saugatuck. Love the Florentine omelet with rye toast. Try to find someone to split with since it is such a large portion. The muffins are fantastic. Try the scrambles and the pancakes. All delicious!

We ate here this morning and it was wonderful. It had a great breakfast menu. It only serves breakfast and lunch. I believe it's closed Monday and Tuesday. If you are looking for breakfast in Saugatuck, it's great!

This place is tucked away a bit in downtown Saugatuck and wonderful. It feels as though you're in a hidden garden some place in the middle of no where. The food was extremely good and the service was very good as well. I would go...More

Went to Ida Red’s for brunch on our roommate reunion weekend and we loved it! Excellent scrambles with the most amazing ham. Service was great. We will definitely be back!

On a cold weekend I was one of a handful of people in town but was warmed by the good home cooking and hospitality of this quaint cottage. Just a heads up...they don't take credit cards.

Stopped for breakfast on the way back home. Excellent breakfast. Had the scrambler with spinach, tomato and cheese. Huge! Veggies cooked just right, a bit firm not soggy. Added whole wheat pancakes. Didn't even have to add butter or syrup....So good!! Good coffee too!

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.
