Great crab/spinach Benedicts- but THREE portions (3 eggs, 3 English muffins, etc.)? Too much food- recommend you share. Blinzes were oddly grainy and way too sweet. No espresso machine, coffee tasted store-bought diner. Bfast was $46.60. That's expensive!

Wonderful place for breakfast especially with kids. Hot chocolate served with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles! Love the pancakes and the brioche French toast. Portions are very large.

Place was packed, but wait not too long. Parking is a typical beach town. All the food we saw looked good. San Franciscan omelette was delicious!

Katy's is THE place for breakfast if you're on the Monterey Peninsula and it's worth a drive if you're nearby. Try the New Mexico Sausage Omelette, which is blissful, or any of the egg dishes. Whatever you choose it il will be delicious and fresh and friendly. Try it!

Crowded but service excellent I had the Swedish pancakes! Unbelievable. Filled with mixed berries. All breakfasts large portions. This restaurant lives up to its reputation.

We would recommend. Cute place a couple blocks off Main Street. The bagel and lox was really good. Husband liked his Reuben. Daughter said tuna sandwich was good and son liked his eggs Benedict. The coffee was good. Cash only.

Katy's Place is popular with the locals because of the ambiance and the food. The service is good, too. Standard fair. Reasonable prices.
