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.

Our family picked this spot to start the week and we were not disappointed. Our son at his Grilled Cheese and part of my breakfast (I was wise enough to order the Big Breakfast just in case). The pancakes were light and fresh as was the Belgian Waffle and the French Toast. My wife really liked the Pumpkin Bread French... More

We tried Kate's on our trip to Carolina Beach. It was a very busy place at breakfast but our wait was less than 15 minutes. Our service was very good. Staff were very friendly and pleasant. I had biscuits and sausage gravy. The biscuits were very big and fluffy. The sausage gravy had a good flavor. My husband had eggs,... More

We chose Kate's because it was and easy walk from the condo. Not knowing the area we didn't know what to expect. We put our name in and was told there would be a 15 minute wait. They have a menu posted outside to look at while waiting. We were seated in about 15 minutes and out waitress, Jen, was... More

It was so good the first time we went back the next morning. The first day the wife and I both enjoyed the Very Berry Pancakes which is loaded (and I mean loaded) with blue berries, and topped with strawberries. The bacon was perfectly crisp. On the second day the wife ordered the same dish, while I enjoyed a very... More

This restaurant was such a fun place to eat breakfast. The choices are unimaginably wonderful and so numerous. The servers are so friendly and it seems to be locally popular. The interior is very quaint and charming with lots of interesting things to look at. If you can't settle on one type of item and this may be a limited... More

We never leave Carolina Beach without stopping for breakfast at Kate's Pancake House. The food is great and the wait staff is very friendly. They are always busy but you dot have to wait long for a table.
