If you like a little "greasy spoon"- type place for breakfast, stop at Kate's! We had bisquits and sausage gravy, eggs and oatmeal. It was great! The atmosphere feels like 1955. The service was good and quick. It is clean and inexpensive.

One of my favorite stops when I am in Marshall is breakfast at Kate's Diner. This is the real deal. Good, home-cooked, inexpensive food which comes fast and is always accompanied by endless cups of hot coffee served by a delightful, friendly waitress. This is...More
