Still good; almost superb.

Been there a few times before; food & service are still good. Just not great. The food is basically good, but - and this is NOT a joke - the apple sauce is substandard. At this price point, applesauce must be premium grade. That means sweet and CHUNKY, not "smooth". Good enough for us to return... read more

Love visiting Kathy's when I'm in town. I usually order their breakfast, but the tuna melt is excellent.

I ate at Kathy's for breakfast with my wife and 2 friends. Awesome breakfast menu with everyone very satisfied with their meals. Prices were very reasonable. Our waitress was prompt and friendly and kept the coffee flowing. Our friends live 15 minutes away and they are excited to have found a great place to eat breakfast without having to go... More

We looked forward to having another outstanding breakfast at Kathy's when we returned to Staunton, Va. Although the pancakes were excellent the omlet was dry and not too tasty. The server was the same and she was outstanding as last time. We should have followed her original suggestion from September and had the blueberry pancakes. Oh well eat and learn.... More

Kathy's has been well-rated for its breakfast menu, and deservedly so. But I want to put in a good word for their lunch/dinner menu, too. My wife is especially fond of quiche, and the quiche at Kathy's is her personal favorite, especially with the muffin and fruit that are part of the lunch plate. I'm especially fond of two of...

True to style the waitresses wait on you with friendly no nonsense. The coffee just keeps coming. Real breakfast diner food. Bacon was crisp like I wanted. A must stop for breakfast. Always busy. Plan to wait unless you get lucky. Worth the wait.

I've been going to Kathy's for years, ever since I was a student at MBC. When I moved back from Chicago recently I started going every week, and when I brought my fiancé over from Norway, he LOVED it. He actually asked me to get him one of their coffee mugs for his birthday ☺️

As a long time local resident in I had been to Kathy's many times, but I will never go back. I went to pick up a takeout order this morning only to have the owner walked past me out into the parking lot and to have two other front desk type employees walked past me while my order sat on... More
