Katy's is a small diner clearly popular with locals. The food is amazing: housemate, creative, well-prepared with fresh local ingredients. The wait was short, the staff friendly and knowledgeable, the food very good. Try the corned beef hash or any of their many Benedicts. Good biscuits and gravy, do.

Katy's is a tradition, but one that earns its keep. The place is popular, a bit crowded at times and not really a good spot to linger at busy times. That said, the breakfasts are huge and very good, the service efficient and the menu is varied and accommodates almost any taste. The prices reflect this spot's popularity, and you'll... More

When we come to Carmel, Katy's is a must ! We love there breakfast and the great service. Bring cash as they don't take credit cards. The food may seem pricey to some, but in Carmel they are all on the average around the same. Again we look forward to coming here every year to have a great breakfast !

Nice but pricey breakfast spot. I then remembered we were in Carmel by the Sea. The breakfast was delicious and had much to choose from. Our server was very attentive kept my cup of coffee warm. We had the pecan waffles and a egg and bacon dish. This was our 2nd visit there.

This spot came highly recommended by friends who learned we were spending the day in Monterey. First, to be fair the food was very good. The basque omelet was great. My wife's French toast was as well. My daughter was with us. The place was crowded and noisy but about right for an informal diner. I would rate it a... More

A breakfast menu that is probably the longest we have seen anywhere. Friendly and very fast service, too. Food was good - not spectacular, but perfectly fine. The Eggs Benedict hollandaise, though, was absolutely stunning - highly recommended. Despite comments in other reviews, we thought it a large cafe with plenty of seating and tables. We would happily return.
