This place is always packed with a wait line, and it's worth every minute of the wait. We had outstanding service from Misty. My husband loved their Irish benedict, while I enjoyed a 1/2 order of their florentine benedict. Portions are enormous, full orders are...More

Great location (within walking distance of the Courtyard and Hampton Inns) and hours (they open at 06:30). Staff is very friendly. Over a 3-day period, we tried their sweet potato, s'mores, and boston cream pancakes and their sweet potato french toast. All were amazing. Average...More

We decided to try Kate's because of the positive reviews we read. We are glad we did! It's got the feel of an older diner type restaurant, and the food was very good. The eggs were cooked well, the grits were good, and the coffee...More

We recently visited the Carolina Beach area for the first time and were very disappointed in pretty much all of the restaurants we tried. This was the only exception. The food was good and the service was as well. The place is a bit small,...More

Our first meal out on vacation was after a morning walk to town having breakfast at Kate's. A slight wait as the place was packed, however we did get seated quickly and the service was great. A definite great first outing experience in Carolina Beach!

Our breakfast was very good and we ate every bite. My only complaint was our slow waitress and the crowded restaurant. I'd go again when visiting tho.

I guess there just isn't much competition in the area for pancake houses. I am a breakfast person and was excited when I saw the reviews. Big disappointment. Waffles and pancakes have the consistency of cake. Syrup was good either. Way overpriced.

We went today for brunch place was crowded. I expected that considering the time of day. The waitress did a decent job accommodating us but food came out somewhat cold. The omlets are good but other good average. I'd go back but not breaking down...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.

Can't find a menu online, but they have typical breakfast foods: pancakes, waffles, omlettes, sausage gravy & biscuits. Very reasonably priced and very good. I had stuffed french toast and a side of loaded homefries that... More
