Everybody loves this place, that is, everybody who lives here. Inexpensive, but Roberto makes excellent food. We love it. Friendly, wonderful people. Bacon guacamole cheeseburger is to die for. Enchiladas are excellent. Plenty of stuff for kids. Check it out.

Kathy's is a very busy, popular hole-in-the-wall. No atmosphere, tiny indoors, outdoor seating along the street. I've only had the super burrito, but man, it's good. Friends tell me the breakfast burritos and burgers are good. Definitely recommend for call-in and take-out.

Perfect whole in the wall. Food was tasty, service was old school, but fun. Yummy breakfast. Friendly, clean and quaint.

Kathy's Little Kitchen is just that....a small restaurant, but it has everything for a good dining experience. Named for the owners daughter, they offer good Mexican fare in a cozy atmosphere with friendly service. They are part of the community as it seems each customer is known by name, and visitors are made very welcome. When I'm back in Carmel... More

Lovely position and good service, could do with a bit of a spruce up but was very reasonable and had a broad selection for breakfast. Pancakes didn't seem freshly cooked which was a disappointment

If you find yourself in Carmel Valley Village and in need of a quick breakfast (or really any at all) this is pretty much the only place in town. The breakfast burrito with green and red salsa was delicious. One weird thing to note: one day they accepted American Express and the very next day they did not.

Forget atmosphere, this place is all about their food. I usually go takeout because except for some tables outside by the street, and inside tables with crowds waiting for orders, I'd rather take it home or eat in my car. Only tried their super burritos, and they're so good, I probably won't try anything else. Really popular place; crowds kind... More

This "hole in the wall" restaurant serves great breakfasts and mexican food. Clearly a local favorite.
