OK, But Bring Cash

Went to Katy's Place for breakfast. Their award winning Eggs Benedict (many varieties to choose from, I chose traditional) was very good. The place is a typical breakfast joint, which I kind of like. Coffee was OK. The prices were on the "too high" side and they do not accept credit cards... read more

The place is classic and the portions are huge. Excellent food and we all know it's hard to build a business around breakfast and lunch only. With that said, it is very expensive by all standards especially for cash only.

We were not disappointed with this classic Carmel breakfast spot. So many choices and huge portions. When you eat breakfast here you won't need to eat again until dinner.

Decided to eat here because of their artichoke soup. That was Ok, a little disappointing, but I could have been expecting too much. Bread was not great. Service Ok.

The anticipation set by the high reviews was offset by disappointment. The quality of the food did not justify the high prices - even in Carmel. The "fresh" sauteed spinach served on the Eggs Benedict may have been fresh, I'm not convinced - it was definitely overcooked. The fresh berries served with the French Toast were excellent. The French Toast... More

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 special, and relatively expensive. O.K. in a pinch, but I'll... 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
