Reviewed 20 May 2013

We ventured into Kathy's right before closing after a long day of hiking. We thought that it would be a basic cafe experience and were surprised to find a little Mexican Cantina. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. When the food arrived we were impressed with its fresh ingredients and taste. I would highly recommend this to anyone passing through as a great little place to enjoy an authentic Mexican Meal.

This is an excellent choice if you are in the mood for high quality basic foods, including burgers and Mexican selections. It's in a very small space on the main street in the village. The burgers are outstanding, using high quality beef and fixings. The chile rellenos are to die for. The biggest problem is getting in the door to this tiny and unpretentious place, as they only have about five tables. This is not aomantic or fancy spot, just good food, cooked well, priced fairly, and served by friendly people.

A hole-in-the-wall with limited seating, but the burgers are terrific and the burritos very popular with the local Hispanics, and very reasonably priced.

This is my favorite place for Mexican food in the Monterey area. Everything I have ever ordered here has been delicious and has tasted homemade. I particularly like the chile rellenos and shrimp tacos. It is truly a hole in the wall with only five tables inside. It has a nice, homey atmosphere.

Who would have thought that Kathys Little Kitchen was the best Mexican restaurant in town! Great food at fabulous prices. I love going here for breakfast. I love the fact it is tiny and you are lucky to get a table...it all adds to its charm.
