We managed to get a table for 2 within 10 minutes on late Saturday morning. Really good breakfast menu with us choosing an omelet and pancakes. The pancakes were plentiful with even a half serve being too much for me. I got the berries and it was full of blueberries with fresh strawberries on the top with cream. Would definitely... More

We enjoyed breakfast here on a recent trip to Carolina Beach. We only waited a minute to be seated and a cheerful waitress took our drink order as we were sitting down. Food arrived quickly and was fresh. I was pleased with the turkey sausage option with my pancakes (cut a little corner to indulge in something else right? ha!)... More

My daughter is a vegetarian and she loved the tofu option for breakfast. My husband had the pecan pancakes and I just had eggs with bacon and home-fries. Everything we had was delicious and we will be back the next time we are in the area.

Walking in there is not a lot of glitz. Just warm welcoming smiles. Wait staff was very attentive and courteous. I ordered the Cajun chicken omelette. The sauce was so good. Wife ordered the banana bread french toast. She loved it. Really good food and a lot of options to choose from. My only critique is the home fries. They... More

I’m local and have been to them all. Kate’s is the best and seems to get better every year. The staff is attentive and friendly, although sometimes a little rushed. Kate is often there making it run right. She’s great to talk to and appreciates her customers. If you are looking for something healthy, this is the best option. I’m... More

There was a line of folks waiting for a seat outside, but we have heard good things and decided to wait and give Kate's a try. The wait wasn't too long and they even had outside seating with shade available while we waited. The staff was very helpful and always smiling and they were always on the move to keep... More

DH had scrambled eggs, bacon, pancakes, and home fries. The home fries were boiled red potatoes that needed a bit of grill time. I had a hurricane omelette. I appreciated that everything was tasty and not greasy. Was busy on a rainy beach morning.
