Found myself wanting to go back again

We were told to go to Kate's for breakfast. Bitterly cold outside but warm and friendly within. Wait staff was smiling and very helpful. Orange juice was fresh. A couple of us had what I believe was the migas casserole; very flavorful and good and spicy. Had a short stack of plate sized... read more

I've ate breakfast here last summer. Outdoor seating was available, so the atmosphere was much more relaxed and the seating was less cramped. I just visited last weekend and the atmosphere was very different. My food didn't seem as good as the previous visit, but that could just be because I didn't order the same thing. The ham, sautee onion... More

Dined at this lovely, highly rated, recommended and superb restaurant with my wife on our New Year's Eve weekend. First and foremost would like to point out that the service was impeccable! The lovely Yvonne, our server, was the sweetest lady you could ever ask for! Her welcoming nature and charm truly kicked this place up a notch! Breakfast suggestions... More

The food is absolutely delicious. We had the same waitress in 2012 as we did in 2011, and she was fantastic. It is across from an old barber shop, which is building in which Rooster Cogburn lived in the original True Grit movie.

Outdoor seating, a varied menu and a small town feel go nicely with Kate's Place. You know you're being waited on by an interested server, not a bored underpaid employee. A ready smile came with our food and the delicious preparation made the morning sunshine sparkle. Eggs over easy (almost poached), with beans and green chili was the perfect start... More

I stopped for breakfast on my way from Junction to Ouray because of good reviews. I was not dissapointed. Best home-fries I have had anyware. Crispy & seasoned! The rest of my egg breakfast was also very good. Coffee was not great, but was a good dark roast - better than most dinner coffee. The atmosphere was bright and fun... More

First a shout out to our AAA book, again! It really does steer us to some great places and this was yet another stand out!! A little off the main street--AAA directions were a tad confusing, but in this very small town with mostly dirt streets, everything is pretty easy to find. Kate's is darling inside with lots of colorful... More

What a find. Great place - wonderful food. Friendly staff and a really good vibe. Love the location - has almost a 'move set western' feel in the neighbourhood. Good value too.
