We did not book a table...BIG mistake. We waited for a table by doing a spot of window shopping. Coffee and slices were nice. It is popular because of the friendly atmosphere.

Had an overnight stay in Albany, early Sunday morning was looking for a coffee, this was the only place open. Luckily I had stumbled across a fantastic cafe. Loved the feel of the space, with more time would've loved to have stayed to enjoy breakfast. There was already a few people around, the coffee maker knew them by name and... More

Kate's Place has it all - great food, sensational service and a wonderful atmosphere. My breakfast comprised freshly squeezed orange juice followed by Poached Eggs and Bacon and there were exceptionally good. I'd had no hesitation in recommending Kate's Place.

Kate's Place was a 5 minute walk from our accomodation at the Great Western and a recommended breakfast stop by the hotel management. Kate's place has a great vibe to it and we really enjoyed the relaxed efficient service as soon as we walked through the door. We ordered the smashed avocado and bacon bruschetta and it was amazing. Excellent... More

Excellent coffee, delicious panninis and very tasty mushroom bruschetta. Everything very reasonably priced and staff just right. Looking forward to a revisit to sample the menu further

Smashed avocado on rye toast, crumbled feta and a beautifully poached egg atop with a chopped mint garnish - yum! After a week travelling in country WA and some pretty unexceptional breakfasts and some very ordinary coffee this was a delightful find - and with a 5% discount because we'd stayed at Best Western!

A very popular place with happy staff and, it appeared, customers. Lots of people there and all enjoying a good range of breakfast options. We enjoyed it, although the service was a bit slow, only because of the numbers there.

They have a number of different cakes that are made on site which are very tasty as well. Is on Stirling Terrace and has nice outlook over the entertainment centre and water. Has tables as well as a... More
