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

After a brisk walk on the beach we chose to eat breakfast at Kate’s. We had to wait about 5 minutes for a table on a Sunday morning. Our waitress was friendly and quick to offer coffee. Our order arrived quickly. The eggs were cooked...More

You can tell this place is good by how busy it is. I've never been that people weren't waiting outside for a table to free up unless they were close to closing. They have all the staple breakfast foods, some seafood varieties, and some stuff...More

I bet there is line to have breakfast here during the Summer. Today no line and a great breakfast was had. Pancakes and eggs. Service is top notch and there is a pancake for everyone. The food is excellent.

We have a kite festival every November and the kite flyers come from up and down the US coast. The highlight (and I do mean highlight!) of their mornings is a hearty breakfast at Kate’s. When we talked about switching the hotel where they stay,...More

went into Kate's with high expectations, I like pancakes. I ordered the Blueberry pancakes and my wife had the Belgium Waffle. The pancakes were average at best, though my wife did like her waffle. Even though the service was good, I will choose another spot...More

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.
