Very good breakfast fare in Carolina Beach!

Located very near the Courtyard Marriott Carolina Beach, this little breakfast joint is a really nice place to have a meal. The people are friendly and the food is quite good. I had an egg-white scramble with english muffin and tomatoes, while my daughter had Oreo pancakes. Both were tasty and... read more

We stopped into Kate's while vacationing in Carolina Beach for breakfast and had an amazing meal. There were a large selection of pancakes to order from, as well as other breakfast options. We had the Crab's Benedict that was a delicious change from the ordinary. Not only was the food good, but the staff was so friendly they made us... More

On a recent trip to Carolina Beach we were taken to Kate's for breakfast. It was a good choice. The place was hopping, quarters were tight, and it was noisy. Well families are noisy at breakfast. Most importantly, the food was good, the service was quick and pleasant and the facility was clean. I understand it is usually busy and... More

I ordered the vegetable omelet and breakfast potatoes. I also checked with our waitress how they were prepared. I cannot have wheat or dairy, so I always ask how the eggs are prepared since I am concerned about the butter. I often order poached eggs because of this.However, she assured me they cooked in an oil spray, I asked if... More

Our last family meal while staying at Carolina Beach was at Kate's Pancake House. It was a mighty good choice. Everything served was excellent (especially the home fries), and the kids enjoyed their cookie- and candy-inspired pancakes. Also enjoyed a heaping dose of warm Southern hospitality from our servers. Looking forward to returning to Kate's with additional family members.

Busy, not much room. Service was good, food was good. Had full stack pancakes with bacon. My husband had full breakfast with bacon & eggs. Will probably eat there again next visit.
