We did enjoy the food, Eggs Benedict and Blintzes with Fresh Berries (both nice...) what we didnt enjoy was how we where treated by the lady in charge... One can understand that the place is quite busy, but that does not justify a lady who was in charge of the place (an Asian lady) being so little attentive ... rude, impolite. sit there !!!, what do want !!! you have to order, we are very busy !!! etc etc...
The waiters where very nice, for them all the stars... for the Asian lady NO stars at all...

Get your breakfast here to store up on energy for that full day of shopping or golfing. You won't be disappointed if you like full and big breakfast meals, with a variety of egg dishes, pancakes and blintzes. But if you like dainty little kishy dishes, probably not the place for you. Also, no credit cards, it's crowded, and not fancy. Locals love it, and knowing tourists do to. Omelettes and eggs benedict are famous, and have a huge variety of extras you can add to the plate. This is the way breakfast diners used to be, I think. Have not had lunch, but menu looks simple and good. We got there about 8:20 am on a Monday and walked right in. By 9:30, it was packed.

Tried to eat here twice during our stay in Carmel. The first time we got there any they were closed even though the hours on the town map that is given to visitors said they were supposed to be open. The second time, we went in an it was about 1:45pm (they close at 2pm). When we walked in they were very rude. We stood there with two kids for about 7 minutes before they finally told us they were closed. Rude! FYI- they are cash only as well.

We didn't go to Katy's Place this last trip, but have been there every other trip we have taken to Carmel. Everything we have eaten there is wonderful - their omelettes, their pancakes, everything. It is a very busy place and on weekend morning you may have to wait a while. If you are willing to share with another couple, you can sometimes get in a little quicker. And it's fun to meet other people that way.

We have eaten at Katy's Place everytime we go to Carmel. They have a great breakfast menu and lunch as well, but we always make it our breakfast stop before heading home. They are known for their great hollandaise sauce, but everything I have tried is great. Service is fast and pleasant, they have a nice outside patio that is nice when the weather is cooperating. We refer this restaurant to all of our friends!
