Great breakfast restaurant with good service and food. Better than your traditional pancake house! Good to grab a quick bite before heading out to the beach.

Great Service and nice atmosphere even on a busy Sunday morning. California with avocado was delicious and the grits were perfect.

We love a good pancake house on vacation, and this one does the trick! The food is great and there are so many choices! It seems a wee bit overpriced for the area, but for one meal during our vacation, we don’t mind paying for...More

Great food, good prices. Small, felt kind of packed in, but it’s an old, local diner kind of place, so that’s to be expected. Friendly staff. Busy place, so be prepared to wait if you go during peak breakfast hours. They also serve lunch.

Maybe I ordered the wrong food but I wasn't that impressed with their food. The wait was about 30 minutes long the morning that we went. I ordered the biscuits and gravy benedict which was great, but the red velvet pancake was a let down....More

This place is so good, you have to wait in line to be seated. The wait staff is one of the best I have seen, very table filled, and coffee cup was never empty. Food was vey good, many choices.

First time vacationing in the area and we made a few trips to Kate's pancake House. Too much to try and all of it delicious. The trip of little cakes, they weren't that little, allowed us to try a variety of pancakes. The red velvet...More

They don't have an outdoor space for eating, only inside. No pets allowed. If you're looking for a pet friendly breakfast place try Hang Ten - you can eat on the outdoor deck there with your dog.

Can't find a menu online, but they have typical breakfast foods: pancakes, waffles, omlettes, sausage gravy & biscuits. Very reasonably priced and very good. I had stuffed french toast and a side of loaded homefries that... More
