Breakfast Excellence! Taste, creativity, and service!

On a recent visit, Katie's had an excellent breakfast (A+ for creativity), and the service was also well above average. It is not a cheap place to eat, so we only come here about every other month. The owner and staff are always very friendly. Overall, highly recommended!

Katie's kitchen is nothing special, the inside is poorly decorated, sub 1980's decor. Tables and chairs are cheap, most of them wobbled. Food is typical breakfast fare, couple items that sounded good, but what we ordered turned out terrible. Not sure what kind of poor excuse for a Chef this dive uses, I've had better breakfast at truck stops. Owners... More

Chose Katie's Kitchen based on location and TripAdvisor reviews to meet friends for a late breakfast. Service was prompt and friendly and the decor was great. Lots of offerings for breakfast or lunch. Coffee constantly refreshed. The portions of food were quite large and the ingredients seems fresh. The omelettes and scrambler were only average in flavor. I would return... More

We have eaten breakfast here several times and they have all been very good. They use quality ingredients and the preparation is always correct. Enjoyable atmosphere and good service.

Katie's is our new "Go to breakfast spot". We typically come in with a party of 10 to 14, and they have no problem seating us, we just call ahead to let them know we are coming......The amazing thing is that all the food comes out quickly and at the same time. We always order Bloody Mary's on Sunday Morning....and... More

Katie's breakfast menu is a lesson in how to do it right. Fresh ingredients, perfectly prepared, with simple touches that make this local gem stand out. All of your favorites are here, they're just better. See for yourself. http://www.katieskitchenonline.com/breakfast-menu Make sure you get the home-fries. Great coffee, too.

They have a $5.00 burger nite and they ran out of burgers. Food was so...so. Restroom had an awful sewer smell.

We go to Katie's Kitchen about every other month or so. We were there about a week ago and this visit was no different than our typical experience. Excellent! Very good creative menu, and good service. It's a smaller venue in a small corner strip mall, with both booths and tables. There is a fireplace. It has a family-run vibe.... More

I was promised excellent breakfast options at this neighborhood favorite. The peach crepes looked amazing and the plain crepes and chicken salad lunch combo were both pronounced excellent while my apple pancake, cooked in a cast iron skillet, was large but sadly over cooked.
