Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you’re looking for a traditional American breakfast, come here. Their pancakes are delicious! The waffles are pretty tasty as well. Friendly service too

I have been going to Kathy's for the last eight years. I mainly go for breakfast, however, I have had a few lunches there. I have never been disappointed. Even with the change in management, the menu and the food have remained consistently good. I...live 33 km away from Kathy's. That is a 45-minute drive. For me, it is worth it.More

Kathy's Waffle House is a well-known breakfast and brunch spot in Granada, Nicaragua. Kathy's Waffle House was recommended by many as well as our hotel as "the place" to have breakfast and brunch. The menu is extensive and carries many familiar U. S. breakfast/brunch items....This is a go to for U. S. tourists considering the familiarity of the food items. Kathy's Waffle House has everything from pancakes, omelettes, to waffles. My husband ordered an omelette and he loved it. My 7 year old had a typical Nicaraguan breakfast and he absolutely loved it as well. I had a Belgian waffle and it was average, same as I remember. This place is frequented by tourists, retirees and expats. We saw a couple of expats walk in during our time there. Kathy's Waffle House offers beautiful views and the Museo Central Cultural de Convento San Francisco is located right across of the Waffle House. Eat some breakfast here and walk across the street to the museum! The only thing I'd say is that the prices of Kathy's Waffle House are comparable to U. S. prices. It wasn't much cheaper than I anticipated.More

After coming to Granada over eight years and a must to have at least one brunch here, this year found menu changed and with different approach. Gone was the tasty rye/white thick bread, no hash browns nor bacon with most being a la carte now....AND a nice price increase in just over a year from 2019 to 2020. However, must admit that food choices and taste are based on individuals. Once this year was enough of a visit, would I go back again, probably not.More

It’s a great breakfast. If you’re looking for a little taste of “home” and you’re a gringo then this is a great place. They offered typical Latin breakfasts as well but the prices are much more like “home“ as well. The food is very good...tasting and good quality.More

If you want to indulge yourself, go there. Food is good, from the expresso to the smoothies; from their "belgian wafles" (not the authentic one I must say; being belgian) to the traditional Nicaraguan breakfast. Well located, it offers a splendid view on the monastery.

Given the name of the restaurant, I didn’t know what to expect. However I have nothing but positive things to report about this little gem. The food is always excellent with special kudos to the staff who are always friendly and attentive to your needs....I noticed a few complaints about the pricing however our bills for 2 people including generous portions, unlimited coffee, tax and gratuity usually come in around $15 US which is about ½ of your average IHOP bill back home (and the food is far superior at Kathy’s). We understand that there has recently been a change of ownership. We’ll hope that they don’t mess with a good thing!More

The earlier the better, as the sun rises onto the dining area. Food is classic, American (US) breakfast fare--and they get it right--especially the bacon. That is worth a visit alone, as bacon is not common in Central America, and is rarely cooked like USA...expats remember it. This restaurant can help with missing home...More

If breakfast is your favorite meal don't sleep on Kathy's. It's got a huge diner style menu and maybe the best home fries I have ever had. It will be hard to decide what you want to order because there are so many tasty looking...options. Also they have amazing toast which I was told they make in house! Yum!More

Stopped in here for breakfast. Staff are very friendly and we were seated straight away. We ordered the eggs, bacon, toast and the hamd and cheese omlette, both were cooked well. Prices are a high for what you get which is disappointing. As we have...had better breakfasts for the same price at other cafes in the area.More

We met some friends for lunch and I had the grilled ham and cheese and my daughter got a burger. Both were good, and the lemonade (and the service) were excellent. It felt a little like being back in the States briefly..

Sorry excuse for a pancake, fake syrup, burnt bacon, stale cold toast, the coffee sucked and I have no idea what they served me but it definitely was not home fries. Waiters are too busy texting and they take tips without permission. This may not...have anything to do about the food but the owners son runs around scamming tourists for money and pretending to be a soccer star so that kids and their parents pay charity to his so called football club which is non existint.More
