We stopped here for lunch around noon. The place was just emptying out from a busy breakfast crowd. We got OK sandwiches and fries. Nothing special.

Fast and tasty - kids mini-pancake breakfast was just right, adults got an omelette and the pumkin bread french toast and the split each halfway to get a taste of the others'. Delicious!

We stayed at the Marriott so Kate’s was easy to walk to. The staff was friendly. The food was fine but nothing outstanding.

They don't have an outdoor space for eating, only inside. No pets allowed. If you're looking for a pet friendly breakfast place try Hang Ten - you can eat on the outdoor deck there with your dog.
