Not worth it

Arriving on a Sunday at 9am is not a good idea. Very crowded and cramped on the inside. Good luck hearing your conversation. The hosts were not pleasant and gave us a 20 min wait time which turned into longer. Saw the food. Basic- never actually ate there. Ended up going to Giovanni's a black... read more

Always our first stop in our annual visit to Carmel. HUGE, tasty breakfasts....from creative egg dishes to housemade granola and gigantic pancakes. Home-like atmosphere in a gingerbread-like house. Friendly staff and endless mugs of good coffee. Serving lunch also, but have never tried it. Too full from breakfast!

food is always really good and large portions. Eggs Benedicts (classic), you have to try at least one time. Wait staff very attentive, but can get real busy and you wait just a bit. I prefer the outdoor dining as it's dog friendly. go at least once a month.

Went to Katy's after walking out of From Scratch in the Barnyard because the service was the worst we have ever experienced (don't waste your time there unless you don't care if you ever get served). The staff at Katy's is like a well oiled machine. Our server was incredibly nice and our food came swiftly. The portions are huge... More

"Breakfast at Katy's Place" may not have the same ring to it as "Breakfast at Brennan's" but you can not only get fabulous Eggs Benedict but also outdoor dining in wonderful Carmel, something not available in New Orleans! We read about the Eggs Benedict here and have been saving our outrageous nutrition for the moment we could enjoy it in... More

We live in Carmel and have been to Katy's Place several times. We love the food and sometimes have a good experience...which is why I'm finally writing a review. Today wasn't a good experience! We got to Katy's early (~8:30) and waited to be seated...about 20 minutes, which is the norm for this place. Sat down and got coffee promptly... More

Good place to go for breakfast. Katy's has been in Carmel for a long time and is popular with tourists and locals alike. Things aren't fancy but you never go away hungry. Porch is a great place.

Although Katy's place is famous for their Eggs Benedict, which my hubby thought was the best he'd ever had, I LOVED the French toast with fruit. Absolutely delicious! We will definitely be back the next time we're in Carmel.
