“Very good breakfast and not too spendy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

While in Carmel for a family wedding, we had a couple of breakfasts at Katy's Place. Food was delicious and surprisingly not over-priced considering location is Carmel, after all! Busy at regular meal times but we did not have to wait long for a table. Outdoor seating as well as indoors. The hostess could have been a little friendlier - but she probably realized we were "Just Tourists" and wouldn't be back regularly. That would be my only complaint. I'd recommend it for a normal meal in a very ritzy town.

“Great breakfast and little dog friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We had several people recommend this spot so we gave it a try and loved it. Very good breakfast and fast service, but a tiny crowded space so get there early. We were there at 8 but was very crowded by 8:30. We had to lift our little dog over the fence since you can't take your dog through the restaurant to get to the patio. They were fine with her by us on the patio.

“Great breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Great breakfast menu and outdoor seating was very nice. Service started off very slow, but they somewhat redeemed themselves once they actually took our order.

“The most awesome breakfast ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We found out about Katy's Place through Trip Advisor and thought it warranted a visit. We were so glad we did! Over our nearly 3 week vacation in California and Nevada this was easily the best breakfast we had. I have never seen a breakfast menu so long and it wasn't a surprise that there was a constant stream of customers through the door. We only had one day in Carmel but had we had more, Katy's would have been our breakfast spot every day!

“Great way to start the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

huge menu, tons of people, great little place in Carmel-by-the-Sea. I had a waffle absolutely covered in fresh strawberries. I also enjoyed a taste of a delicious omelette and had great, prompt service despite the huge crowd. I wish I would have had more room for a biscuit as I only tried mine. Delish!
I love this cozy, bust, bustling spot with it's total Carmel vibe. Sadly, we went on our last day there--I'd have revisited.
