Quite good breakfast, crowded, had to wait 25 minutes at 9:30 on a Friday morning. But Kate greeted us at the table and the food was totally good.

This pancake house seems to be geared towards the one time visiting tourist. When we ate there we were not impressed with the food or the service. The food seem to be the cheapest ingredients available. Many generic condiments and sweeteners. We will not go back. There are many places on the island that are much better for breakfast and...

We've been to Kate's before and knnew that it can be very busy. We got there before 9 and only had a very short wait. It was worth it!. We've had their pancakes before, so this time we went for the Crab Benedict. Eggs weren't poached to rubber and the 2 crab-cakes were very generous. Good Hollandaise to top it... More

Boy, if you are in the Carolina Beach area and it's breakfast time (during the season they are open, of course), you definitely need to stop and eat at Kate's. There is a huge variety of breakfast dishes on the menu and the coffee is always hot and the cup is always full. The servers are great, working hard to... More

Went in early on a weekday morning. I had biscuits and sausage gravy which were very good. My girlfriend had banana nut bread which was dry. The menu has a number of interesting pancake choices. Service was very friendly, Oddly two large biscuits covered in delicious gravy was $4.99 while a simple glass of juice was $3.00.
