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

Not very busy when we called in. It's quite a big place and I imagine no one will have to wait long for a table. I had the crab benedict it was great. Quick friendly service.

A little wait on weekends but the food is good. I don't recommend the crab benedict but the others are good as are the eggs and grits waffles and pancakes.

Great place to get a wonderful comfort breakfast. This place gets really busy, but it is well worth the wait if you want a tasty breakfast. The service is fast and once you are seated the food comes quickly. There is nothing fancy about this...More

On our last day we decided to try this place. Out of all of the year's we've been going we've never stopped in. Our mistake. Very good country ham, pancakes, bacon and eggs. The table next to us had some amazing looking waffles with strawberries...More
