Went there for breakfast. The place was packed, but didn't have to wait long. Got served immediately and the food was great! Veggie omelette w/hash browns (awesome). Wait staff was friendly and working hard. Will definitely go back!

We had breakfast at Kate's this morning. I had the vegetarian omelet with potatoes. It was excellent! It came with an option of two blueberry baby pancakes, which should not be called babies, they were a really good size. But once you see the size and stacks of their pancakes, you can see why these are called babies. My husband... More

We enjoyed the pleasant service and tasty breakfast dishes at Kate's. The pancakes were very good, and my egg dish was great. The prices are very fair. We will return again. The menu is pretty big with some creative choices.

We went here on a Friday morning around 9:30 and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. Well worth the wait! Huge breakfasts. Loved that you could order smaller portions of the breakfast. I had the 1/2 order of eggs benedict, and my husband had their Irish Benedict. So good! Staff works really hard here - very friendly.... More

On our family vacation to Carolina Beach each year this is our final stop before hitting the road back to Boone! So many choices, there is something for everyone at the table. We look forward to going from the time we arrive!

We stopped here for breakfast upon arriving at the beach. It was crowded but staff are amazing at getting people in and out quickly without making you feel rushed. Specialty pancakes such as Death by Chocolate and Sweet potato, omellettes, and even vegetarian tofu scramble for my daughter. We loved it so much we had to visit again the following... More

My wife and I didn't dislike it, but it is noted on tripadvisor (as of July 2016) as #1 of 51 restaurants in Carolina Beach. It's decent breakfast food. But we do not see how it outshines every other restaurant in Carolina Beach.
