We are here last year and couldn't wait to go back this year. We were not disappointed. Friendly staff, great waffles, perfect bacon. Love the owners. Prices are unbeatable. This should be the #1 breakfast stop.

Busy place even in October because the breakfast is so good. Their menu offers lots of variety and we tried as many dishes as we could. Our group was completely satisfied the two days we dined there. We would have dined a third time, but the line was almost in the street....does that tell you anything?

This place is incredibly busy and for good reason. The menu is so appetizing it was near impossible to chose. They also have a healthy section with a tofu scramble and a lot of choices using egg whites. They even have seasonal items such as pumpkin french toast. The food was delicious and the service was great. Will definitely return.

We enjoyed Kate's Pancake House 3 mornings in a row! The staff was always so friendly and attentive and the food was absolutely delicious! Also the great non profit that they support, LittlePInk.org is a wonderful cause!

My French toast was excellent. Coffee was drinkable, but not very strong. Wifes berry pancakes had blueberries from a can, not what you would like. good breakfast except for those berries. Nice that they raise $$ for a medical charity.

My wife, child and I dined here for a late breakfast. My wife, being a huge fan of eggs benedict, ordered the crab benedict. The hollandaise sauce was a dark brown color. The crab was so overpowering of everything else on the benedict that it was like sticking your tongue in 3 day old fish guts. The hollandaise had zero... More

This place was very good. It is your typical diner type spot with very good breakfast. What always sets these places apart are the people and they have a great staff. We will go again.
