Kate’s Pancake House


Kate’s Pancake House

102 S. Lake Blvd., Carolina Beach, 28428-5133, NC

You can’t miss the bright pink building with turquoise roof at this breakfast spot, popular with locals and visitors. Everything is fresh and creative with lots of fresh fruits, organic this and that, as well as gluten-free choices if you need them. As much fun as the pancakes and French toast are, stretch the envelope a bit with crab benedict or even a Rueben for breakfast.

Kate’s is applauded for its genuine and sincere customer service. Something has really gone wrong if your family is not happy here. It’s open for lunch as well. Note that Kate’s is really busy on summer weekends.

For a fun little souvenir, check out the handmade bibs for sale at the counter, made by one of Kate’s family friends.
