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.

Be sure to arrive hungry because the portions at Ida Red's are quite large. The scramblers - their version of omelets - are fabulous. They must use 4 eggs and have a nice selection of combos. You can special order your own combinations if you can't find what you want. The fried potatoes are perfectly done. Their bread and pastries are house made and are delicious. Service is great too. They often have lines - it is worth the wait.

In my opinion, the best breakfast spot in Saugatuck. Great omlets or scrambles as they call it and perfect breakfast potato's. Excellent Rice Pudding if thats your gig, even for breakfast dessert. Be prepared to wait if you do not get there early, they are very popular and off season, I think they are only open Thursday - Sunday so check ahead.

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 so.

Long wait to be seated, was told 20 minutes but waited almost twice that long, food took a verrrry long time to come out, it was hot and fresh, but overall just ok....our waitress was not attentive at all, thank goodness another waitress refilled our coffee at least once.

We showed up on a Friday morning and had to wait about 15 minutes to get seated due to a large crowd...my wife and sister in law got the breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg, cheese and avocado on sourdough toast and loved it...my brother in law and myself got the scrambled omelet...really good...the coffee was also good...very busy place with good food...highly recommend!!!!!!!
