A great place to enjoy a good Southern breakfast. I loved that they had really delicious healthy options on the menu. While my kids gobbled down their Fruit Loops (something they only get on vacation) and my husband enjoyed his banana pancakes, I really loved the Tofu Skillet and will try tor recreate this for myself at home.

Great old time, southern beach diner. The specialty pancakes (Kate's PANCAKE House) rule the menu and are the main reason to eat here.

What could be better than marshmallow and chocolate on a waffle? This place is cute, but close quarters. The food was great though. The s'mores waffle was the best and my boyfriend was jealous that he chose something else. Definitely check it out!

Don't understand all the positive ratings.....the food was just okay and we waited very long for it to arrive. I have had better waffles at the free Hampton inn breakfast..the French toast and pancakes were absolutely nothing special. The ham was tough and salty. Maybe it would have been a better idea to order one of their specialty pancakes with... More

This is a small breakfast place that served delicious food. Some of us had omelettes and some had specialty pancakes. They had oreo, pb cup, chocolate chip, cinnamon roll etc as some of the pancake choices. Everything was very good and the service was fast and friendly.

...was to die for! The portions are pretty big so my honey and I split everything. Everyone who worked there was super nice and the service was very quick. This place gets packed and parking is limited. The only wait we experienced was for a parking spot! We ate here twice while on our vacation. Will def go back.

The place was busy but we got in quickly and had our pancakes in no time. Pancakes were good and hot and service was great despite the restaurant being so busy. Definitely a good breakfast choice in Carolina Beach.
