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.

Very nice staff from the hostess to the waitress. Our good came out super fast....10 mins. Everyone like the eggs and pancakes. The only negative was the floor was a dirty....had food on the ground. Will go back again.

You know how some places get a lot of hype and you go there and say, "What's the big deal?" . Well Kate's has the hype -- but in this case it was well deserved. We went here for breakfast at prime time on a Sat -- the wait was about 15 minutes they said -- and 15 minutes it... More

We made it into Kate's right as the closed sign was going up at 1pm. The staff was pleasant and very helpful with our menu selections. There was something on the menu for all of us and the waitress even helped us select a few different options to try 2 varieties of pancakes. The cinnamon rolls were wonderful too.

Kate's was an overwhelming favorite during our visit. Don't let the line outside scare you away. It went quickly each time and the food is well worth the wait. Once seated our order was taken quickly and food delivered even quicker. The pumpkin bread french toast, banana pancakes and potato chip sliced hash browns (so yummy) were among our favorites....
