As someone mentioned, the road construction in little 'ole Ridgway made it take about 3 minutes longer to find Kate's, but the recommendation made to us to eat there didn't disappoint. We ended up eating too much, which was OK. The Lemon Ricotta Blueberry pancakes were as tasty as the waitress suggested. And the Chorizo Burrito, and the Ole Omelette... More

The food here was very good and reasonably priced. There was a wait, but things moved pretty fast. After we sat, the waitress was great and the food came out quickly.

The restaurant is a simple place with a focus on delicious food. You can tell when a restaurant CARES about its quality of food and service. This place cares. Everything I had was delicious and well prepared. The atmosphere is friendly and open. I had the breakfast special with eggs, potatoes, sourdough toast and pork chops. Everything was made perfectly... More

Food was very good. Recommend it highly. Not cheap (breakfast dishes: $9--$12) but, hey, this is a resort town--what did you expect? There can be a wait to get in, but you won't regret the wait. Child and family friendly.

This little place is hard to find due to intensive road construction in Ridgeway. We had to ask for directions. A previous review commented that pets are allowed on the outdoor patio. This is no longer true. A sign says, NO PETS. The selections are so inviting that it is hard to choose what to order. We ordered soup, salad... More

Truly a breakfast delight! A short wait for a table due to its popularity, but WORTH EVERY MINUTE! The food is prepared to order & abundant. They do not slack on their serving size and you won't go away hungry or dissatisfied. Coffee is flowing & service fast.

Kate's Place is a quaint little restaurant in the heart of Ridgeway, Colorado. This little town in the Rocky Mountains has breathtaking views of the San Juan Mountain Range and is rich in history. It is about an hour from Ouray and Telluride. We drove a few miles from Ridgeway State Park for lunch here (great camping there by the... More

Cafe a block off the main road in small town (side roads just being paved). A nice patio with good service (but slow kitchen?). I had an excellent Asian chicken salad, although a bit mild flavored dressing. The chicken was cleary home made and much better than usual fare at similar places. Twins both had Spring Salads with salmon, and... More

We had three breakfasts here this week. It deserves the 5 stars most reviewers have given it. The indoor ambience is bright and cheerful and the outdoor patio is very pleasant when the weather is warm enough. Our three servers were attentive and competent. The lemon/blueberry/ricotta pancakes live up to their rave billing. Also good were the huevos rancheros, an... More

This place was recommended to us by our landlady and she was right! Not a real big place so expect to wait for a table if you get there after 8. I had the Sneffels Skillet. Absolutely incredible! Extra crispy home fires with sautéed fresh mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach and two eggs on top with cheese. So good! Homemade sourdough toast... More
