It is an icon in the neighborhood, but it isn't really that good. There isn't anyplace else obviously open for breakfast. So, there will be a line. And the food is so-so. Don't want to make breakfast? Then you need a morning restaurant. Want something good? Then you will need to drive. Bummer.

If the locals eat there, you know the food is good and Kate's does not disappoint. Food came out hot, fast and friendly. Get there early for breakfast or you'll be stuck waiting outside.

Had the pumpkin bread french toast. It was excellent. Large portions. Coffee was very good and nice and hot-hate lukewarm coffee! Food was delivered quickly even though it was very busy.

This is always our last stop on the way home from vacation. Fast service and good food. Omelets and pancakes are highly recommended!

You have to try the banana bread French toast. My favorite. The variety of pancakes is also very good. Kate is also very active in the community, really a great asset.

The staff were cheerful and attentive. I thought the food was just average, but the coffee was good. It is very popular but small, so if people had to wait for a table, they often had to wait outside. Get there early !

Thank manxbabe81
