Great place for a family breakfast

We ate breakfast there twice in three days - kids and parents loved it. It's not as inexpensive as Waffle House etc., but the selection and quality of the food is better. The staff is friendly and attentive. Some highlights and other thoughts: Some portions are big - consider small orders or... read more

French toast: wonderful, bacon cooked perfect, eggs over medium and link sausage wonderful. Belgian waffle large and yummy. Best item on the menu: the very best grits I have ever had!! Can't say enough good things about... More

Our second year visiting Carolina Beach during Fourth of July and our second year enjoying breakfast at Kate's. Every time our food was ready and on the table within minutes of ordering. They have an efficient, orderly system. We've never had to wait once for anything. Everything is scratch prepared and fresh. Prices are very reasonable and the service is... More

I love finding little hole in the wall breakfast spots. This one did not disappoint. Luckily we got there just in time to be seated right away. All of the food we had was fantastic. My healthy burrito was so tasty. We didn't try any of the pancake flavors, but I can only imagine how amazing they would be based... More

This is the place for breakfast at Carolina Beach. This establishment is full of locals and travelers alike and it is always busy. We waited about 5 minutes for a table on a Sunday and got to sit in the quiet room at the front. The main room is really busy and bustling. There are great combo options or omelette... More

We preferred the breakfast food at Kate's. The atmosphere was pleasant and the restaurant size was not claustrophobic. Although patrons did not rate Kate's as the number one establishment to eat breakfast, one travelers experience, mine, disagrees. My husband and I enjoyed Kates better comapred to others

Wow! I had never even heard of Crab Benedict but if you like Eggs Benedict this is two crab cakes on top of English Muffins, with the eggs and Hollandaise sauce on top! What a treat. The service in this place is excellent, both the staff and the speed that the food comes out. Biscuits and sausage gravy are exceptional... More
