Family and I had breakfast here. This was your typical locally owned gem. The pancakes are pretty tasty.

This is a local's favorite and a good place for tourists to stop. The breakfast is home cooked and there are many options to choose from. I have only eaten breakfast there, but many come for lunch and dinner to sample the home style cooking. This is a southern favorite.

Long time locally owned establishment that will please most appetites. Home cooked meals that are usually above average, based on the cook of that shift. Wait staff usually full of Southern hospitality, which is perceived a PLUS by most who walk thru the front door.

Katy's is a small diner in Staunton, VA. We prefer local places to chains with lackluster food. We were so happy we went here. The food was made perfectly to order and delicious! The staff was pleasant and helpful. I would definitely go here again if I were EVER in the area!

Service was very fast and very friendly and consistent throughout meal. Value for product and service was really good. Décor is pretty interesting - lots of kitsch, but not so much it's cluttered. I would definitely return again.

Myself & 9 friends went to Kathy's today for breakfast. Our local friends recommended this place. They claim to have the best pancakes in the valley. Well they weren't kidding! I had the country omelet with the pancakes. The omelet had everything you should eat for breakfast in it & gravy! But the pancakes were so light & tasty! I... More

I happened to pass by Kathys during my visit to the area of Harrisonburg and Staunton. Never thought of stopping in because the outside is a little unassuming. I decided to give it a shot during breakfast hours. WOW. I am so glad I did. The inside is like stepping back in time. Very cool and very retro. The staff... More

This place was recommended to me. Nice atmosphere, very clean pleasant waitress too. The pancakes and omelet we had were very good. I saw they have won Best of Virginia several times and also Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor too. That alone says it must be good!

Stopped here for a Sat night dinner after a long day of driving. We were seated immediately, beverage order taken and menus delivered. My husband and I are both trying to watch our weight, so we were looking for salads or broiled options. Not many choices in those categories. We both settled on broiled trout. It was coated in butter... More
