“Surfing Ambience”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This is a fun place to have lunch or breakfast. If you've seen HBO's "John from Cincinnati", Katy's was the internet cafe. Katy is a surfer.

The menu items here seem to be generally healthier than the fare at other local restaurants. Definitely worth a visit if you are at Imperial Beach.

“Katy's Cafe - a classic coffee pub”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Excellent selection of eclectic coffees tops off a short list of breakfast entrees. The place is a reminder of coffee cafes of the '60's - remember folk singers with guitars? - that kind of atmosphere sans singers.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We were in town for the mini-marathon and while waiting on our runners we went into Kathy's. Very fun options for breakfast. The granola / fruit was amazing and the sandwiches as well. Love the atmosphere too!
