O.K. nothing special

Ate here for breakfast. Didn't open till 7. Wasn't really prepared even then. Asked if I wanted coffee, and I asked for artificial sweetner and cream, These were doled out by the package. Finished coffee, and took 10 minutes to get replenished.....1 other person in the place. Food was nothing... read more

Slept in late and decided to walk the streets until something called our name. I hadn't read any reviews for Katy's but I heard laughter, clinking glasses and saw outdoor seating in the shade. So glad we stopped by. I was amazed by their menu because there were so many things I wanted to try. It was very hard to... More

Loved this charming restaurant. Great food and desirable outdoor patio. Enjoy that dogs are as welcome as humans on a leash at most restaurant outdoor patios.

On an overnight stay on the peninsula, looked for a breakfast spot and went to Katy's based on Trip Advisor reviews. Was not disappointed. Waiter says they are known for their eggs benedict so that was the route my wife and I took. Delicious Turkey and Avocado Benedict. My wife said there was no way she would finish her huge... More

Guessing by the crowds, Katy's Place is probably the most popular breakfast place in Carmel. Even with the crowds, they are fast like a well-oiled machine, delicious and friendly. The menu has 20 different Eggs Benedict to choose from, with even a couple vegetarian options. Deciding can take some time in and of itself. Lots of pancakes, lots of omlets....options... More

We were hoping to find a place where a good breakfast is served and this was it. Their OJ was freshly squeezed and their spanish omelets great! Cash only but very great find. We will be back

We wanted to have a good breakfast somewhere the locals would go. This was it for sure. It is a small place with outdoor seating that feels very friendly and woodsy. The food and service are great. I had the corned beef hash (specialty) first time I've ever had that and it was very good. Did not feel like a... More

My husband and I have been going to Katy's for over 25 yrs every time we visit Carmel. Well last Sunday we returned to find my husband favorite thing in the world, the pancakes, had changed. The batter is no longer the same and no longer what he will dream about, seriously, - he is the most unusual eater you'll... More

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 away

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!
