If you go for breakfast or brunch, don't expect to be hungry before dinner. Food is delicious and portions are HUGE. The problem is, the food is so good that you won't want to leave anything on your plate. The eggs benedict is delicious, as are the blintzes.

had an awesome breakfast at katy's place. reading the previous reviews makes me wonder where those before me ate....the service was spot on from the moment we entered and the amount of food served was more than I actually could eat...I would certainly recommend this restaurant to family and friends and I would certainly return for another meal...

There is a large menu and the food is good. But if you want to use a credit card, go elsewhere. Nonetheless, Katy's is worth a try! Don't be discouraged by the negative reviews. The dining room is small so yes, you may have to wait. But we enjoyed it! The food portions are large so saying it is expensive... More

I'll keep it short: Best breakfast in a while Would drive 1.5hrs just to brunch here. Sit outside - it's beautiful, even on a somewhat chilly morning. CASH ONLY Get a benedict. Any benedict. But try the Irish benedict, and get a side of truffle mushroom hollandaise. It's the best sauce I've ever had. Don't get a side of bacon.... More

It was raining heavily and we had our dog with us, so it was impossible to sit outside. We decided to order takeout and go back to our house. It was easy enough to place our order, but the order was wrong when it arrived so they made the necessary changes . Then wrong again. Finally after having to have... More

A cute upscale dinerish type of place with a huge menu. I was pretty pleased with my traditional eggs benedict- hollandaise was super buttery, eggs cooked perfectly, excellent canadian bacon and the potatoes were seasoned nicely and crispy. The oj was fresh squeezed, if a little pricey at 6.95, and the half of side of bacon was nicely cooked but... More

We were in town and wanted a great place to eat and this place was voted best spot in town. So we looked for it. We got there and it's a tiny place that was jam packed with people. They have an outside Terrence but it was raining. So they sat us right away, once we got seated it was... More

This breakfast spot comes highly recommended so we thought we'd check it out and see what all the fuss was about! We didn't have to wait and we were shown to a nice table outside on the terrace. Tables are quite squashed together but there was plenty of room once we got settled. Coffee was good. Katy's place is known... More

Love the setting of the restaurant, have that European look nestled under two big trees. lots of choices and the largest selection of Poached Eggs I have ever came across. The serving is huge, and you definitely can share. There are three eggs in the poached eggs dish...really? Best part, breakfast is serve all day and they were really delicious
