I ordered the Papa Burger and requested medium and it came well done. The Ninian Ranch? beef had no flavor whatsoever and the side salad consisted of chopped lettuce and a slice of tomato. THEY DO NOT OFFER FRENCH FRIES. Honestly I have no idea why this place is popular or even included in the list of restaurants of Carmel.... More

So we went to Katy's 4 mornings running for breakfast. It was amazing!! Unlimited great coffee, speedy, friendly service. Buzzing and busy. Amazing array of hearty breakfast items - eggs, pancakes, waffles, etc.etc. We tried the lot and not a bad dish in there! We miss Katy's!!

We had an amazing breakfast here before we set off on the Big Sur drive - if you're looking for an authentic and delicious American breakfast experience then this is a great place to go. A daunting selection of food (about 20 variations of eggs benedict for example), nice suroundings and good food.

We visited Katy's place purely as that's our daughters name! However, the food was amazing. We had brunch there, mugs of coffee were continuously topped up, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. My husband had an omelette and I had the pancakes with fresh berries. We didn't eat again until dinner! Lovely setting, especially if you get a table on... More

THe food here is good but the ambiance is pretty bad. We sat on their patio and were so close to our neighbors, we got to know each other well. We had breakfast and there was nothing reasonably priced. Every meal was over $15. Total with tip was $25 each. No way around it. I thought it was a good... More

Whenever my wife and I visit Carmel we always plan a breakfast at Katy's Place! The highest quality food, prepared consistently, truly memorable. It only takes cash and expect to pay $50 for breakfast but it is well worth it!

This was a delicious but really pricey breakfast. The atmosphere is great (we ate outside) and service is excellent. Our breakfast was delicious but not worth $50 for two people. I guess that's pretty normal for the area but, whoa. We did have to move seats because our table was over a gas line and we kept smelling gas and... More

We have eaten here many times with friends who visit us, but this time was with our granddaughter and son. It is a popular place for both breakfast and lunch, especially since they offer breakfast all day. The portions are large enough to share if you want. The food is yummy but basic. Our group had the hawaiian breakfast pancakes,... More
