Visited Carolina beach for the weekend, and found ourselves going each morning for breakfast. Small place, but never waited more than a few minutes for a table. Excellent food for the money. I also love the round up option on the check to benefit breast cancer research!

My wife and I ate here a couple times at breakfast on our vacation. Good food and attentive service. Coffee was great and the menu was extensive! I tried one of their many omelettes (western) and it was very tasty and made perfectly. Wonderful for breakfast eats!!

We ate at Kate's on 3-7-14. Service was great and the pancakes delicious. Restaurant was clean. Will definitely go back there the next time I'm in Carolina Beach.

Ever heard of Banana Nut or Pumpkin Bread French Toast? Or how about a stack of Sweet potato or s'mores pancakes? That's the type of decadent breakfast treats you will find along side of typical egg platter breakfasts. Satisfying portions at a moderate price point. Only ate breakfast ... but the lunch side of the menu looked tasty and the... More

Crowded and happy, staff definitely tuned into the varied wants and wishes of multi generational families. It was crowded and a bit loud but happy. Big menu, from silver dollar pancakes to crab eggs Benedict. We were glad to find this place. Lunch menu starts at 11 am. It is a breakfast place mainly.

Décor is dusty and looks like the 1980's and this also matches the menu. Food is average at best and coffee is so bad ...cold and watered down when it finally arrived. My son was so excited about his blueberry pancakes, took 2 bites and pushed his plate away. I personally would rather eat at McDonald's than wait a long... More

Stopped in for a quick breakfast during the off season. They were quite busy but the wait for a table was not too long. It seems like a nice enough place but our server was very inattentive and the food was just OK. We heard a few servers telling other guests that the kitchen was backed up and food was... More
