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.

Katie's Kitchen is one of my favorite breakfast spots. I look forward to the new seasonal offerings each year. My all time favorite is a fall dish that uses an acorn squash stuffed with apples, cranberries, walnuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon. It is served with eggs and ham. It smells so warm and spicy as it is brought to the... More

We've been going to Katie's since it's opening, mostly for breakfast. Have yet to have a disappointing meal!

I tried this local favorite based on the positive reviews and was not disappointed. The breakfast menu is huge, so it is hard to pick among the many combinations, many interesting and unusual. What I had was excellent. The place was packed even though I was there fairly late for breakfast. I can understand why! By the way, if they... More

Crowded on a Saturday late morning. Pretty big place so only a 10 minute wait. Lots of eggs, skillets, pancakes, etc. to choose from. A gigantic menu. Food is well conceived and made with skill. Great flavor in everything. I had a barn country scrambler with chorizo sausage, onion, red potatoes, eggs, monterey jack and pancakes. Baked all together and... More

Was heading to the airport with family looking for a breakfast restaurant. We ended up at Katie's Kitchen and will come back here again. There is so much on the menu, that everyone had at least 2-3 choices to chose from. The staff was friendly and service was decent. The decor is even nice and the prices good.

Love Katie's Kitchen! Best breakfast in the northwest burbs. Large portions, wide variety of menu items. Can accommodate large family groups, but call ahead. It's a small space and they're always packed on the weekends.

I love dinners and family restaurants to go for a quick lunch or dinner if i'm out running errands or even for lunch during work days. The advantage is that you can usually find filling healthy meals or at least comfort foods, at a very good price. This place is what all family restaurants should be. The regular menu is... More
