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

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!
