Great food, huge portions! Great service! Atmosphere matches the food style. Bring out of town guests to this joint and our family always has a great experience!

I know some people thing it's great but I have never been that impressed. It's always crowed and loud. When egg prices increased, they dramatically increased their prices, Needless to say, the didn't lower them when the egg prices dropped. The ambiance is interesting with all the old historical pictures. There is outside dining.

Smack dab in the middle of Quaint, Kay's Country Kitchen is ready to serve. They have a wide assortment of local cuisine but really specialize in breakfast anytime of the day. Everything we had was great. Service is timely and always with a smile. I had the Bag Omelet, which sounds a bit ominous, but was very good. We had... More

This place was amazing!! There were so many yummy menu choices it was a difficult decision to make but I chose the BAGS Omelette and it was delicious. This place was filled with people (looked like many locals) mid Saturday morning. Upon entering, we were told the wait would be 10 minutes but it was only a few minutes before... More

Kay's has an excellent variety of breakfast and lunch items. They put a lot of pride into what they do. The wait staff is excellent and quite friendly. As time has gone on, their prices have risen quite a bit. You get what you pay for and this place is worth it.

My husband and I shared a wonderful breakfast. A very large breakfast of chicken fried steak, eggs, country potatoes and toast. I had a biscuit on the side. It was very large, for us two seniors. Our server was very attentive. The coffee was plentiful. We ate early, around 8:30 a.m. The restaurant was full with what appeared locals. When... More

My husband loves the tri tip and eggs and I love all the healthy options. Honestly the best breakfast in Orcutt. Sometimes it's really busy and you have to wait awhile but it's totally worth it. It's busy because it's good food!

As we were traveling up the 101 North to Monterey CA. Went on line looking for some breakfast. Kay's had some good reviews and was just a couple of miles off of the freeway. Soooo happy we stopped. We have only had the breakfast at Kay's and it is nothing short of fantastic. The service is excellent and the food... More
