Is there good food Down River? The answer is yes. There are good restaurants serving quality eats all over the Metro area. Flat Rock might be better known for its speedway than its dining establishments, but there are a couple of restaurants serving excellent food and quality ingredients.
Kate's cranks out an incredible variety of baked goods every morning including awesome cinnamon rolls, fresh biscuits, and a variety of pies that we bring a tear to your eye. The coconut cream is amazing if you like that sort of thing. French toast made from their cinnamon swirl bread is great. The gravy is right, bacon is thick, and you won't be disappointed with anything put in front of you.
If you pursue a good cup of freshly ground premium coffee, this is not something that Kate's specializes in. Its standard diner coffee at Kate's. This should not stop you from the incredible edibles you will find here.
Kate's is on the map for breakfast. While they do have a variety of lunch items available, breakfast is their thing, and the doors are closed at 2pm. You should take time to go off the beaten path and have breakfast at Kate's.
