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.

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

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
