This place was slammed on a Saturday morning, but the wait was moving and we got our food pretty quick, considering the wait. The French toast was great.

We have lived here in Wilmington, NC since 2010 and this is the first time eating breakfast at Kate’s . The seating is on very hard wooden benches which are uncomfortable . Too many tables spaced too close to each other does not allow enough...More

I highly recommend! We went around noon (about an hour before they closed for the day) and the food and service were both outstanding! Prices are also quite reasonable.

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.
