My husband and I found this little place driving through the small town of Ridgeway Colorado. We noticed all the cars that were there and thought we couldn't go wrong. People know a great place to eat. Especially the folks that live in the area. Its a small litttle restaurant with a family atmosphere. Service was great. Thank you Jennie!... More

We went out of our way to eat brunch in Ridgway after locals in Ouray recommended we go. The place is quaint, clean, great vibe, super nice waitress, but the food...oh the food!!!! Completely sophisticated and wonderful. Everything is fresh made, even the plain ol' bacon was outstanding, the corned beef hash to die for, along with the grits, but... More

Great food, great service but expect a wait during peak times on weekend. If you can endure some time just waiting you will be very happy.

This was our first time to Kate's Place. We had heard from several locals that the food was really good there. It has a homey atmosphere inside and the food was excellent! I tried the lemon ricotta pancakes and they were wonderful! The bacon was cooked to a nice crispness - just the way I prefer. Our coffee cups were... More

This was my first time eating here, and hope to get to do so again! The food was great! I had the asian salad, the servings are very generous, and the server friendly and helpful! We did need to wait a bit for our food, but it was worth it!

The yummiest breakfast is what we found at Kate's Place. It was hard to choose from all the selections. I had the pumpkin pancakes which were excellent. My husband had some type of tex mex omelet which was also great. The service was friendly and in a nice small setting. If ever in Ridgway again, We would definitely return here.

Found Kate's Place and stopped in for breakfast. Nice selection for breakfast. Waitress was very helpful and kind. Some of the locals saw us with some University of Georgia clothing on. They came over and talked to us and shared some things to do while there. Seemed to be a place where the locals gathered. That is always a good... More

My husband and I just love the town of Ridgway, Colorado and try to make it up there for a week every summer or fall. One of the things that makes it so special is the homemade food for breakfast and lunch at Kate's Place. Yes, we eat there twice a day, and if we are going on a long... More

Kate's Place has the best and freshest food going. We live in Ouray County and eat at Kate's as often as we can. The menu is well thought out and food is beautifully presented. The soup is always fresh and imaginative. A great place to meet friends and to have breakfast and/or lunch with your family. The staff are always... More
