Extensive menus for breakfast and lunch. Great omelettes, tasty potatoes, great toast and pancakes, and plenty to eat if you are hungry. Service is outstanding, and staff are pleasant and friendly. And everything is reasonably priced. I had their Avocado Omelette which was obviously filled with slices of avocados, cheese and bacon. It dripped of flavor. Try it. For my... More

Guess we were expecting something special, but it didn't happen. Turkey pannini was disappointing as were the sweet potato fries. Hubby chose a short stack of pancakes with too crisp bacon. Could have been the weather, but our choices suffered at its expense. Far into the future we may try Katies again. Hopefully we will chose a sunny day.

Located in a small strip mall on the southeast corner of Wolf Rd. and Central Rd., there is plenty of parking for Katie's Kitchen. There were five of us, two adults, two 3 yr. olds and a 1 yr. old. We were seated quickly and our server brought us the menus and we chose the kids' food as soon as... More

Have stopped a Katie's a few times for breakfast.., always a pleasure as the service is fast and warm. food is perfect and they always have something original that departs from the standard breakfast menu. worth a visit and know you'll go back

I found Katie's years ago after David's Bistro left the strip mall. My wife and I enjoy the food & the service. We take my mother for special days (Mothers Day,etc) My mother in Law & Husband find it very nice too. The food, the service make it a place that is consistently enjoyable.

We showed up here on Father's day expecting horribly long lines. Waited for about 15 minutes and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. We're from out of town and just happened upon this place when googling breakfast restaurant. So happy we did!

We came back to Katie's kitchen recently for breakfast on the weekend. You must get here early, before 8:00 AM, if you don't want to wait. The food is delicious, and the restaurant is popular. I often see groups of police officers, and groups of nuns here on Saturday mornings. They offer quite a few specialty dishes, and they have... More

Went to a shower at this restaurant. Food was fine. Average breakfast/lunch food menu. The owner or whoever was managing that day was pretty rude. Wouldn't give a friend of mine a to go box for the sweet treats that were on display for the shower. Supposedly the person putting on the shower had to bring them for us. Seriously?... More

Like so many restaurants, Katie's Kitchen used to be better....but it's fine. The food is pretty good...just not as special as it used to be. The consequences of success and expansion sometimes results in corners being cut. But everyone is friendly and if you need a simple meal in a diner-type setting...give it a try.
