Cute breakfast spot. Small and busy but if you can get a table inside or on the patio you'll enjoy. If you have a dog not much room on patio to have with you so something to keep in mind. Food was hot, portions generous, and they had a good variety from the basics to interesting combinations.

This is a darling little gem in Carmel. The menu is terrific! Try any of the Eggs Benedict selections or the tasty pancakes. They have a great children's menu, too.

Popular place for breakfast. Small restaurant, usually wait for table on weekends. Cash only (no credit cards or checks). 10 plus kinds of omelettes . Pricey (this is Carmel) and other breakfast fare. Very little street parking, usually with 2 hour limit. A few outside tables (best place to eat), otherwise in an noisy room.

We had breakfast here on two separate mornings. The food is very good, service is excellent. The price is a tad high, probably because of the in town Carmel location.

Come hungry because the portions are large. Great pancakes and egg dishes. Huge menu almost guarantees that you will find something that fits your tastes. Busy place, friendly and professional staff. Keep in mind that it is cash only and you expect to send at least $20/person.

Wanted some breakfast and this place was highly recommended. Now there were probably about 10 people waiting for tables however there were only two of us so we got squeezed in to the corner which was fine. It is a very small place so don't expect a lot of arm room but you come for the food not a 5... More

These trendy new breakfast places are very expensive and have very little old fashioned breakfasts. Not Katy's place. Best pancakes, eggs, bacon and toast. The only place we have breakfast in Carmel.

We came on a busy weekend when the ATT golf tournament was happening. We were lucky enough to get to the restaurant early and be seated promptly. They really had to pack customers in. We were literally elbow to elbow with other customers but it wasn't a bad experience at all. We ended up getting the crab omlete, egg white... More

I had breakfast at Katy's Place the first morning it reopened after their vacation. Although I arrived soon after it opened, I sat at the counter as it so was busy and I was dining by myself. I so like eggs benedict. So many times, while visiting a new restaurant, I order it to have a comparison with other restaurant... More

Really good. Great menu and am for dishes were very tasty. I had corned beef hash: big portion and so good. A bit pricey but solid choice.
