It's your typical good country place that a lot of locals and older people like...much like Cracker Barrel, but better. The waitresses are outstanding and fast. If you're in the mood for a good country breakfast, this is it.

Reviews were mixed but we decided to give Kathy's a try when passing through the area. Our service was excellent, the waitress was friendly and attentive. The food was good ol home cooked food. There weren't trendy herbs and other ingredients, just plain ol home cooking. Coffee was ok, hot and creamer was cold (in response to another review) It... More

The earlier reviews suggested that this might be a special place for breakfast. Not so. Waffles were a step down from out-of-the-box mixes, cheese omelet tasted of watered-down eggs with some orangey, tasteless smear. Virtually no fresh fruit on the menu. Biscuits were tasteless. Other than that. . .

We ate her last weekend with an out of town family member. It was the worst meal we have had at a restuarant ever! Every meal over cooked and lacking ingredients. To boot our waitress was rude and service was slow. How they can advertise best breakfast in Staunton...I don't knows. Go to mill street grill instead... They are worthy... More

We loved Kathy's. The food was great and the atmosphere was very welcoming, partly because of the friendly staff. The menu is very large, and the pan fried fish was done to perfection! A very clean, welcoming restaurant and quite suitable for families.

We sat down to coffee and breakfast. The creamer was in a metal dispenser but when poured it revealed curdled consistency. Our coffee was then undrinkable. By the time everything was replaced we only got a coffee cup each instead of two. I was unsatisfied.

We went expecting a great breakfast and it was just average. The coffee was poor, the staff was friendly and the atmosphere fine for a diner, but all in all disappointing.
