“Pumpkin french toast...”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

...was to die for! The portions are pretty big so my honey and I split everything. Everyone who worked there was super nice and the service was very quick. This place gets packed and parking is limited. The only wait we experienced was for a parking spot! We ate here twice while on our vacation. Will def go back.

“Good pancakes and great service”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

The place was busy but we got in quickly and had our pancakes in no time. Pancakes were good and hot and service was great despite the restaurant being so busy. Definitely a good breakfast choice in Carolina Beach.

“Good food”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Very nice staff from the hostess to the waitress. Our good came out super fast....10 mins. Everyone like the eggs and pancakes. The only negative was the floor was a dirty....had food on the ground. Will go back again.

“Ok -- pretty darn good breakfast place even with the hype”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

You know how some places get a lot of hype and you go there and say, "What's the big deal?" . Well Kate's has the hype -- but in this case it was well deserved. We went here for breakfast at prime time on a Sat -- the wait was about 15 minutes they said -- and 15 minutes it was! Nice!

We sat down at a nice big booth (4 of us) and got served right away -- ordered our coffee, etc. and they appeared within minutes! Nice again! In fact, both water and coffee were both re-filled very promptly during the whole meal.

We ordered a bunch of different things -- pancakes, french toast, an omelet, biscuits and gravy. The pancakes were indeed fantastic as was the sausage gravy -- the biscuits were good enough examples (not the best biscuits I've ever had, but very good and perfect for the gravy). The french toast was a little disappointing in that it was pretty standard -- french toast. Compared to the other standouts, it felt a bit behind.

In any event -- we had a very enjoyable breakfast to start our long Saturday! :)
