Typical beachside breakfast - pancake house on the beach!

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

I ate breakfast at Kate’s Pancake House one morning prior to starting my day. I arrived at around 0730 and found no issues finding a table with only a couple taken at the moment. The restaurant itself is not that large, however they still were able to fit a lot of tables comfortably in the seating area. By the looks... More

A super friendly pancake house with a surprising amount of variety in the menu. We ordered an assortment of items including a GIGANTIC omlet which was delicious and full of fresh tasting ingredients. The servings were large and plenty to fill us up. The staff was great and Kate's husband was refilling the coffee. Love that! This will DEFINATELY be... More

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.
