great food at a great price ! Some Mexican favorites like horchata and burritos and old favorites like burgers. A good selection of beers and soft drinks as well. One of the best values in the Village !

“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We were just wandering on. Sunday morning waiting for some tasting rooms to open when we stumbled on this great little place. Sat outside enjoying an excellent mountain view and a wonderful and really inexpensive breakfast. Only a Bloody Mary could have made it better but alas only beer. High ratings for the food, service, and view.

“Mexican surprise....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

We ventured into Kathy's right before closing after a long day of hiking. We thought that it would be a basic cafe experience and were surprised to find a little Mexican Cantina. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. When the food arrived we were impressed with its fresh ingredients and taste. I would highly recommend this to anyone passing through as a great little place to enjoy an authentic Mexican Meal.

“Honest Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This is an excellent choice if you are in the mood for high quality basic foods, including burgers and Mexican selections. It's in a very small space on the main street in the village. The burgers are outstanding, using high quality beef and fixings. The chile rellenos are to die for. The biggest problem is getting in the door to this tiny and unpretentious place, as they only have about five tables. This is not aomantic or fancy spot, just good food, cooked well, priced fairly, and served by friendly people.

“Great burgers, reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

A hole-in-the-wall with limited seating, but the burgers are terrific and the burritos very popular with the local Hispanics, and very reasonably priced.
