I've lived down the block for five years and eat here often. The service okay and atmosphere about the same as every other neighborhood diner in this part of Brooklyn. The portions are moderately large and food tastes mostly good, but not remarkable. Although, let me make a special shout out for the fish cakes (not generally on the menu, but are a feature a few times a month). Not sure what the previous rater was talking about -- there are no Irish American waitresses, it's the same staff for as long as I've been going.

I went into Cathy's Place in June 2012 since I saw their online menu featured a full Irish breakfast. Having come from working in the field, I started heading to the men's room to wash my hands and was instantly challenged by a woman who demanded to know where I was going. I smiled and said politely, "I am just heading to the men's room to wash my hands." She rather snottily said to me "You need a key to use the men's room," and handed me a key. I thanked her and went into the men's room to clean up. After I sat down, a surly Irish-American waitress came over and handed me the menu without a smile. I thanked her, and after seeing that a full Irish breakfast was on the menu, asked for it with a cup of tea. She looked at me as if I had two heads. I repeated my order and showed her what I wanted on the menu. After a ten minute wait (I timed it), she came back and said without a smile "We don't have any Irish breakfasts." I then ordered a regular breakfast. Instead of tea, I was given a cup of coffee. When the breakfast finally came, the sausages and the underside of the eggs were burned. I never got a refill of coffee. I finished and swore that I would never go back to this establishment again. I do not recommend this location to anyone. The food is not very tasty, and the service is slow and unfriendly.
