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.

Long wait list in this adorable brunch place. Once we got seated it took 40 minutes to get our food. The kitchen staff moves like lightning but it is so busy it just takes awhile. They had homemade blueberry, raspberry or banana crunch muffins...come early as they sell out. Our food was hot and plentiful. Indoor and outdoor seating.

The outdoor seating was wonderful for breakfast. We went in late August at 9:30, we were seated in less than 5 minutes. The reason for 4 stars is the service was really slow for how busy it was. The scrambles were delicious with great ingredients. You must get the potatoes as well. Many vegetarian omelette choices. I would go again for sure.

Very pleasant atmosphere and staff. Food was incredible! Go early or later to miss the rush. Sit inside or out.

Waited on a Tuesday morning for a table and it was worth the wait. The muffins are homemade and fantastic. Every thing on the menu sounded so good and the taste of the food can't be beat. Get kitchy location and friendly staff.

Ida Reds features only real food -- with delicious pancakes, a large variety of omelettes and egg dishes, among other delights. There are usually waits for a table so it's good to put your name in a take a walk around town. It's worth any length of wait!
