We both enjoyed a delightful curried sandwich on whole-wheat bread and soup at this eatery. Staff were down home friendly who provided organic eats we might have prepared at home. Not fancy for dinner but will definitely have you seated beside locals, or wannabe locals....More

With outdoor and indoor seating, Kate's is a great place to enjoy a pastry and a coffee or soups, sandwiches and salads, etc. They offer a great variety of cookies and I enjoy stopping in when at the P.O. next door. Fast and friendly service.

Went in for a sweet treat after a late lunch and four of us picked out four different sweet treats. ALL were superb. The chocolate espresso shortbread and chocolate pecan caramel squares were amazing. Utterly satisfying; worth every calorie.
