Great start to the day

We had breakfast here before hitting Big Sur. We arrived early and had no trouble getting a table for four. The service was with a smile and quick. The food was lovely and fresh and the coffe decent. We would visit again.

Although it is a bit of a wait to get a table, once you do you understand why! Blueberry pancakes, Belgian waffles, sausages, eggs, etc, a great mountain breakfast to start the day.

We ate out on the patio which was perfect for slow people watching. The menu is so long it's hard to know what to order because it all looks so mouth watering. My husband ordered the truffle benedict. They are apparently known for their benedicts and even just narrowing it down to the eggs benedict you still have about 15... More

I ordered Katy's Benedict, my hubby had eggs and ham. Both were very good and both came iwht 3 eggs! The Hollandiase indeed was excellent; I only like mine with a little more lemon in it, and they gave me lemon wedges. It wasn't the wow factor as the others stated, but these dishes may have not been anything out... More

True chefs work here at Katy's Place. Every breakfast has been a dream, with magical hollandaise sauce over nearly a full page of Eggs Benedict variations. Love the Florentine omelette and the Irish Eggs Ben. Get there early - it's the best place in town, and locals know it.

We had a very nice breakfast here. I actually had the four-grain cooked cereal with sliced almonds and dates because I had gone overboard with dinner the previous evening. It was a very generous serving with oatmeal as a base. My husband had corned beef hash with fired eggs; something he doesn't get at home. He devoured it!

Katy's Place was busy at 10 on a Saturday morning, but we only waited about 10 minutes before being seated at the counter. We were given the choice of counter or wait a bit more for a table when they told us the counter was available, and we decided to go ahead with the counter and that spot made the... More

Excellent broad selection of very good breakfast options. Good service but a bit crowded and cash only.
