Good Lunch Place

There's not a lot to say. It's a good lunch place. Not open for dinner. Friendly. Prices are reasonable.

My wife's salad wasn't that great (with a lot of boring iceberg lettuce) while my turkey meatloaf sandwich was fine. Service was OK. The hostess took $2 off the bill after my wife told our waitress about her salad.

I have been to this restaurant 3 times because my wife likes the kitsch atmosphere and their breakfast skillets. While the food is good, it really isn't all that special. I read glowing reviews about this place and was royally disappointed. Each time I have had a long wait to get in and wait for my food. The woman at... More

If I could rate by how kind and personable Katie's Kitchen was I would give it a five! Our waitress was so sweet and made sure our coffee cups were full. It is easy enough to find (in a strip mall) and there was plenty of food on our plates. But it was standard eggs (one of us ordered with... More

Menu features tons of choices and portions are generous! Warm atmosphere and friendly wait staff makes this restaurant our favorite for for breakfast or brunch. Popular, so can be crowded at times.

Chose Katie's Kitchen based on location and TripAdvisor reviews to meet friends for a late breakfast. Service was prompt and friendly and the decor was great. Lots of offerings for breakfast or lunch. Coffee constantly refreshed. The portions of food were quite large and the ingredients seems fresh. The omelettes and scrambler were only average in flavor. I would return... More

On a recent visit, Katie's had an excellent breakfast (A+ for creativity), and the service was also well above average. It is not a cheap place to eat, so we only come here about every other month. The owner and staff are always very friendly. Overall, highly recommended!

Katie's is our new "Go to breakfast spot". We typically come in with a party of 10 to 14, and they have no problem seating us, we just call ahead to let them know we are coming......The amazing thing is that all the food comes out quickly and at the same time. We always order Bloody Mary's on Sunday Morning....and... More

Katie's breakfast menu is a lesson in how to do it right. Fresh ingredients, perfectly prepared, with simple touches that make this local gem stand out. All of your favorites are here, they're just better. See for yourself. http://www.katieskitchenonline.com/breakfast-menu Make sure you get the home-fries. Great coffee, too.
