We came on a busy weekend when the ATT golf tournament was happening. We were lucky enough to get to the restaurant early and be seated promptly. They really had to pack customers in. We were literally elbow to elbow with other customers but it wasn't a bad experience at all. We ended up getting the crab omlete, egg white... More

I had breakfast at Katy's Place the first morning it reopened after their vacation. Although I arrived soon after it opened, I sat at the counter as it so was busy and I was dining by myself.

Really good. Great menu and am for dishes were very tasty. I had corned beef hash: big portion and so good. A bit pricey but solid choice.

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.
