Seems to be very well known locally as the place to go for breakfast. Huge menu and serves are large. Pancakes were cooked perfectly and were very light and fluffy. Lots of choice - eggs benedict fans would love all the different variations. Only does percolated coffee not espresso. Good service.

Absolutely unbelievable breakfast at Katy's Place. It was busy mid-morning, mid-week & it was positively delicious. The staff was friendly & my Santa Fe eggs Benedict were perfect. The food was so fresh & perfectly done. Indoor & outdoor seating. I brought my baby inside, wearing him in a Baby Bjorn as there is no room for strollers. Cash only... More

My husband and I visited Katy's place on our trip to Carmel, Ca. We had a wonderful breakfast and found the staff to be very friendly. Katy's was very busy and we can understand why....it is a charming little restaurant with great food and Carmel ambiance.

Amazing breakfast. Outside table felt very tree house like..I had the crab eggs dish which was amazing. Semi pricey .. Three breakfasts, two coffees, side of bacon, one hot chocolate and one fresh Orange juice .... $86.00

I came here to have a breakfast by myself after paying almost $30 I think it's very very overpriced and on top of that it has to be cash they do not take any credit cards so be aware please, I don't see why this place is so popular I will never come back here again.

Stopped in this morning for breakfast. 40 min wait but well worth it. Terrific meal (pancakes, French toast) and great service. Not cheap, but really good.

Katy's restaurant served a really good breakfast in a comfortable setting. They lost our repeat business , however, because they take "only" a cash payment.

The restaurant is written up in many resources as dog-friendly. We set a large group up around this feature. When we arrived, we found only dogs under 15 pounds are allowed. Fair to have that as a policy, but please be forthcoming in your advertising. A disappointment for many in the group that had been looking forward to enjoying this... More

Had to wait 40 minutes for breakfast on a Sunday morning in downtown Carmel, CA. But... Well worth the wait. Have to definitely try the smoked salmon on Grandma Amanda's potato cakes. Big selection eggs benedict. Would definitely come back if we visit here again.

Very busy as we arrived and advised 25 minute waiting time. It was actually 35 but worth the wait. Amazing choice of eggs Benedict, incredible omelettes & the best pancakes ever. Could do with an extra server & an espresso machine but still a top quality breakfast venue.

Thank Lee B
