Kate’s Kitchen’s humble beginning started just a few blocks from the restaurant’s present location, in a basement on Arsenal Road in Flat Rock.
Word of Catherine Gillespie’s pies traveled fast, and in 1979 she and her husband Aaron opened Kate’s Kitchen. Pies were what got them started, breakfast fare was soon to follow.
Fast forward to 1997, the business was passed down to their daughter, also named Catherine, who is the present owner. Since then, with the help of a group of talented and devoted women including Becky, Gina and Catherine’s daughter, Alexis, have kept the tradition of quality and homemade comfort food alive.
Kate’s Kitchen is located at
26558 W. Huron River Drive in Flat Rock.
