We knew this place would be good based on how full it was on a weekday at around 10 am. Food was great and the portions were huge.

Whenever we travel north from our home town, we always make it a point to get to Ridgway in time for breakfast so we can eat at Kate's Place. I love their corn beef hash, my daughter loves Sophie's dollar chocolate chip pancakes and my husband loves their Lemon Ricotta pancakes. Their sausage links are great too! It's worth the... More

Had read the reviews about Kate's while staying in Ouray. Was not disappointed. The food was delicious and the service was great. I had the Sneffels Skillet with egg whites and changed the cheese to goat cheese and it was delicious with a very generous portion. The egg was cooked perfectly. My husband had the Huevos Rancheros and liked them,... More

What a great breakfast, hot omelette filled with ham and blue cheese, with a side of fries. The coffee couldn't number better. Restaurant is open concept and filled when we arrived at 11:00 am, however we observed a few singles at tables for 4, blocking things up. Service was exceptional.

Had a nice brunch on the patio at this surprise find in Ridgeway. The portions were large, the service was good, and the wait staff very accommodating. Definitely worth turning off the main highway to find "restaurant row" in "downtown" Ridgeway.

Excellent breakfast joint. Innovative menu with great tasting food. Very pleasant environment in the middle of "downtown". Busy place, obviously the go-to breakfast location in Ridgway.

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.

Thank wharfinger
