Great Home Cooking for a Big Breakfast

Like a big breakfast to start your day! If you find yourself in little old Orcutt, CA, Kay's is worth a visit. Filled with lots of historic photos, this old building is nicely appointed and serves hundreds daily. Expect a short wait in busy mornings, but they text you when your table is ready... read more

Always great food at reasonable prices. Kay and the girls are the best! Can be really busy on the weekends but worth the wait.

There's a strong consensus that Kay's is the best breakfast not only in town, but maybe in all of the North County. Fluffy pancakes and omelettes, thick crispy bacon. This is what i want for breakfast, and when I'm feeling picky there's only one place to drive: Kay's. Very professional waitstaff and food comes quickly. There may be a short... More

Friendly staff. Wide variety of choices. Drinks served in large mason jars. Sandwiches were very yummy! Cute decor. Clearly the best choice in town!

If you are really hungry this is your place because the servings are enormous. The wait was fairly long even with a reservation so come prepared; bring a book.

This little gem in Old Orcutt is a wonderful place to go for breakfast. If you plan to go on Sunday you will be in for a wait as everyone goes here or tries to! I always get the cinnamon French Toast, it's a rich yummy flavor that only Kay's can create. A must if you are in the Santa... More

My husband did not like his chorizo and eggs at all. My bacon avocado bacon omelet was dry, dry, dry it was either over cooked or had been sitting to long. The avocado was 3 small thin slices laid on top; my biscuit was so dry, I could not even eat it! Our server handed food over people's head always... More

Not the first time I've been here. Food has always been fast, hot and delicious. Kay is usually greeting the customs and is always friendly. Service is friendly. You can always get breakfast.
