Had breakfast here one morning while I was staying at the Courtyard Marriott across the street. This is a great little place, and I had a very nice waitress and an excellent omelet. I also like the way they raise money for charity - it's easy to round off your bill to the next highest dollar. Will definitely check this... More

Found Kate's online and decided to give it a shot, so glad we did. Nice little place with a friendly staff, great selection, and very reasonable prices. The service was quick even with them being busy and the food was absolutely wonderful. The banana pancakes were to die for and the Southern Benedict was a great spin on a traditional... More

Visited Kate's for breakfast while on vacation and the food was delicious. Prices very reasonable and the menu had plenty to choose from. Definitely beats the microwave breakfast at the hotel we stayed at. Thumbs up to the staff!

Stopped in for breakfast before heading home from a wonderful vacation. I was not disappointed. The Cheese Omelet was wonderful and loved that the offer toast or baby pancakes! 2 of them might I add and they are more toddler than baby. Great prices and friendly wait staff.

My wife and I had a nice breakfast at Kate's. There is an extensive breakfast menu, with many choices priced quite reasonably at $8.29. I believe we were served by Kate herself. We ordered omelettes that came with mini-pancakes as a side. She asked if we would like those in one of their fruit flavors, and we agreed. She didn't... More

As former breakfast place owners we are pretty picky. This place knocks it out of the park...great selections, super friendly service, fair prices and quality matches them all. Benedict over Hash with stone ground grits, pumpkin French toast, how can they be bad???

Wow! This place is great. Wonderful atmosphere, extremely friendly wait staff, quick, and the food was delicious. My husband ordered the Reuben Omelet and said it was the best omelet he's ever eaten. I ordered the Philly Steak Omelet and it was wonderful. My six year old ordered the Death by Chocolate Pancakes and they were good too. The prices... More

We were greeted every morning with a smile and a sincere good morning. All of the wait staff are extremely friendly. They go out of their way to make you feel at home and accommodate your requests. The food is great and very reasonably priced. We ate breakfast here 3 days in a row it was so good.

Really good food. Very dated on the inside. Service was mediocre. If back in town, would eat there again.
