Best breakfast at the Lake, esp the French Toast.

The "all you can eat breakfast" should not be missed. There are lots of breakfast choices to chose from, and as soon as they bring out one item, you can order another. Be advised, the locals know this place exists. Expect to wait for a table on the weekends.

We liked the food, the way to order is different but once you do it- you understand it. The servers are exceptional and friendly. The only negative is a cigarette odor- but didn't see anyone smoking inside.

We ate breakfast at Kay's two days in a row! The food was delicious and the service was great. We'll definitely be back.

We were told about this local breakfast place, and we were SO glad we stopped in. Everything was excellent, and the service was exceptional. A definite place to return.

Since our hotel didn't have breakfast we decided to go out that morning. We drove down the Parkway and spotted this little Cafe. It looked busy so we decided to stop in. It is not a chain so we weren't sure what to expect. It was very busy but we were seated right away. They had a large selection on... More

Went here with some friends for breakfast. Had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. I got the all you can eat breakfast and it was awesome. I obviously didn't leave hungry. The pancakes, sausage, b&g's and eggs were great. The waitress was awesome and my coffee cup never went empty. All my buddies loved the food too. Nothing... More

Kay's offers very good, down home type food. You get plenty of food at very reasonable prices. Nothing fancy but a good place for families or friends.

Ate breakfast here one morning and it was very good. It was a Sunday and they had a sign that said they were only serving breakfast that day. It was fine with me because that's all I wanted. Got the hash, scrambled eggs, toast, and grits. I am definitely eating here on my next trip to The Lake!

It's a homey place with wisecracking waitresses and hot coffee. Breakfast and lunch only. Lots of breakfast options but we picked the "all you can eat, cooked to order" option. I had an omelet, hash browns, and pecan pancakes for the first round which was the perfect amount of food. My husband had biscuits and gravy, hash browns and pecan... More
