Great breakfast!

We visited Kate's for the first time. We had the French toast and pancakes. Both were delicious as well as the sides (bacon, eggs and home fries). We didn't dine in since the place was packed but everything was still perfectly made!

We had breakfast here this morning. Fantastic choice my daughter made! Awesome hosts and great food! They have a donation program for cancer victims families that I highly enjoyed being a part of today since I received the news yesterday of a friend that passed away due to this disease.

This is a popular breakfast spot and you are on vacation at the beach...so be prepared for to wait a little while! And pay a little more....but it's worth it! Try the Crab Benedict...amazing with a side of baby pancakes! Or any of the pancakes! Or one of my favorites, the Southern Omelet with sausage. I've never had a bad... More

I loved Kates. Although I did not get any pancakes at the shop, I ordered a Tofu Stir fry pan which was very very good! I tried a piece of Belgium waffle and they tasted amazing and with as much syrup as you wish it is such an awesome place to eat. They seated us very quickly despite the numerous... More

Great food and service was a little slow but overall good. The negative is that its high for breakfast food. Our bill for two people was $20 and all we got was typical eggs bacon and toast

Food - Excellent, Service - Excellent, no wait, plenty of parking. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who told us she was local and could answer any questions about Pleasure Island. But I guess our question was the exception.

Overall, a very good breakfast place at reasonable prices for its beach location. We ordered three different types of pancakes and liked all of them (Caribbean with chocolate chips and bananas, blueberry pancakes and blueberry pancakes with fresh cut strawberries on top). OJ was average (not fresh squeezed but not industrial tasting. The wait was the killer. Told it was... More

Visited at 1030 on a Saturday morning. 9 people at the table. Super nice staff. Food was hot and fresh, everybody thought it was delicious and very pleased. Good quality and quantity for the price. Worth the wait.

We always make sure to visit Kate's Pancake House when we are at Carolina Beach. Many different options to choose from and all are equally delicious! On top of that the staff is always polite and quick. We love Kate's!
