The Cottage - Wellesley, Massachusetts
This past weekend we stopped by The Cottage in Wellesley to have brunch with my parents.
About the Cottage
The Cottage describes itself as "A cozy, casual, California-inspired restaurant serving lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch."
When you're inside you do feel like your at a Cape Cod cottage. The interior is bright white with lots of scenic beach photos hanging from the walls.
The restaurant is located in the Linden Square shopping center. There is plenty of parking in the parking lot.
Gluten free Brunch Options
We have found this to be a very celiac friendly restaurant. There are a lot of good choices to select from on the menu.
The one nice thing about the Cottage is you don't need to ask for a gluten free menu. Simply flip over the menu and the entire back side their gluten free options.
For Sunday Brunch you can select from a large assortment of Omelets, Salads, Classic Burger and much more. They have good gluten free rolls! It's really nice to see a large selection of gluten free options.
When we ordered we let the server know of the Gluten Allergy. They made a note of it and were very knowledgeable about cross contamination. My daughter ordered the cheese omelet, as she is very simple and likes eggs and cheese. The server suggested fruit instead of the hash browns because of potential cross contamination during cooking.
The manager brought the gluten-free order to the table - a clear sign that the restaurant paid attention to the order. We asked for additional ketchup and they brought it right over.
When I asked my daughter how her brunch was, she gave it a thumbs up. She ate a lot more than she traditionally does!
A Bit Pricy
This is certain a good restaurant to go on special occasions since it is a bit pricey. A typical brunch meal cost $15.
The food was very good, and the service was excellent. The restaurant was nice and quiet as we could easily hear every at our table. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed their brunch, what more could you ask for!
The next time we are looking for a place to go for a nice meal, we'll certainly keep The Cottage in mind. Can't wait to try some of their dinner options. I am thinking between the Ancho Rubbed Short Rib, Lamb Burger, and Lobster sandwich. Perhaps we'll have to go a few more times.
Reservations are recommended for Sunday Brunch as it does get busy. Call (781) 239-1100 for reservations.
