Good country cooking

Very basic menu but good country cooking at a very reasonable price. Good coffee, friendly service. I can recommend the pancakes as well as the cheese-steak omlette

A late morning breakfast on a weekday gave us the run of the place and complete staff attention. The service was friendly and great. I had the eggs florentine and my spouse the combo with sweet potato pancakes. Both meals were very good but mine could have been a bit warmer. The pancakes were very tasty, not too sweet but...

Went here two mornings in a row and ordered the same thing, the southern omelet. The wait staff were attentive, the food was awesome, and it was conveniently located across from our hotel. Will definitely go back , hopefully soon.

We tried both breakfast and lunch at Kate's and enjoyed it. The staff is very attentive, food was very good (we tried the pancakes and French toast for breakfast, crab cakes for lunch), and the prices were good. Great place to eat with the family because it's casual and kid-friendly. They have a small parking lot, so if you can... More

With waffles and ice cream on the menu you can guess what my kids ordered to eat! It was very good I must say. I ordered the breakfast sampler and it was ok. The breakfast potatoes were under cooked and the pancakes were ok. Prices were reasonable. Not a fancy establishment, perfect for the family really. The staff was friendly.

Katie's is the place for a good basic breakfast by the beach! Pancakes are always huge and yummy. Typical beachside breakfast establishment. Closes all winter and only open during the summer time.

We hit this spot for pancakes and coffee before our trip to the sand. It is family oriented and very relaxed. The prices are good and the food is too! It is closed for the off season so make plans for the summer.

Nothing really wrong here but typically service is a little slow. Prices are in line with what they serve but there are better option near by.

Kate's is a local treasure for the food and the great-hearted owner. The options for breakfast range from a vegan tofu skillet to a full-on bacon, eggs, and grits home comfort meal. And the variety of pancakes and waffles are enough to please any appetite. Kate, the owner, is a strong supporter of. Little Pink Houses of Hope. Her restaurant... More
