Katy's Place is a quaint spot. Street parking is available out front. We opted to dine on the patio. There are heaters there but staff will turn them down or off upon request. It took a few minutes for someone to take our order, but once we ordered, our breakfast moved at a very good pace. Everything was superb, especially... More

This small charmer is located on a side street with a large tree shading their small outdoor dining area. The staff are friendly and provide good service. The menu is not extensive, but is adequate. The food was quite good and served promptly.

Best eggs benedict I had - they have a large variety of different styles. I chose the Katy's original, and was not disappointed. To begin with you get three, not two as in most other places. The sauce hollandaise was very creamy, and the smoked ham fit very well. Lots of locals it seemed eat here,too - always a good... More

Very popular breakfast place that only accepts cash. Good food, good portions. Very popular with locals and tourists. Be prepared to wait for a table.

We have been visiting this restaurant for years and really look forward to stopping by for our annual Katy's breakfast fix. Upon our early morning arrival we were seated in a corner of the restaurant directly next to another couple. We were basically the only people in the restaurant - go figure. We requested our usual first course of a... More

Came here for the second time while staying in Monterey and it lived up to the memory of how good it was before. My brother-in-law had the NY Benedict and was very happy with his steak (sometimes an off proposition), my sister had the Crab cake Benedict, and I had the Santa Fe (grilled onions, tomatoes, & avocado) with a...

My second favorite method of finding great dining in a new city is to ask a local. In this case it was the bar tender at a local oyster bar. She said the best breakfast in Carmel is at Katy’s. She described the address, I still had to look it up the next morning. In the morning the day after... More

Recommended for breakfast - huge portions - delicious eggs benedict - I had mine with crab and it was amazing and very generous with the crab. Kids options were available though not very healthy so asked to swap in some tomatoes instead of everything being fried! This was done with no issue. Had to wait a short time for a... More

This establishment is cash only no if and or buts. It can be a bit pricy with an average cost being around $13 a plate. Coffee is good, and since there will most likely be a wait they offer complementary coffee as you wait. Depending on the plate ordered most portions are big enough to share. The food is good,...
