Red House Cafe Restaurant Review

: This barn-red cottage with a wraparound porch and a country-style menu feels a little more Connecticut than California. Warm up in front of the indoor fireplace and make a handsome breakfast of cinnamon-raisin brioche french toast and mimosas, or go the route of the frittata, with sundry fresh spinach, artichoke hearts, roasted red bell peppers (or whatever vegetables are in season) and cheese, served with sautéed potatoes. Don't be shy: ask for a side of chicken apple sausage. Or stop in for an afternoon bite --- an inventive grilled cheese sandwich boasts Fontina, artichoke hearts, roasted peppers and black olive aïoli. When the seasonal soup “is on” it really is --- you'll wish they served the silky English pea version daily. At dinner, fill up with a couple of small plates, such as the salmon pizza, or go for the gusto with a nicely roasted chicken with mashed potatoes paired with something from the balanced, one-page wine list.
