4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014 NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

This wonderful little treasure has been here since the 1950's and it shows it's age oh so gracefully by the way of formica tables tops scuffed by the arms of faithful patrons over the years. The wait staff is friendly, the food is actually very good, and the daily specials vary the menu enough to keep it interesting. You can... More

After a very hectic & chaotic lengthy visit by loved ones from out of state to help her with her post surgical recovery, we stopped here to eat. We had spent the entire day without eating for two doctors' appointments and I am her driver This is a locals' secret gem of a diner. Hungry and want great food made... More

50's diner where we have breakfast every day that we are in town. Always good service, old fashioned diner feel & unbelievably great pancakes. Great hamburgers.

The first time we were in Palm Desert we could not find a breakfast place and a Realtor recommended this place. We go to Keddy's every time we are in Palm Desert. The history is worth reading about. Expect good service, good food and retro type seating. All good and all fun! Enjoy!!

I took my Mom to Keedy's for brunch and some restaurants are not overly thrilled to see last minute customers at closing time. They greeted us warmly, Robert, our server he was SO friendly, fast. The food is ALWAYS great here, love their fresh breakfasts, had a two egg over medium (they got it perfect, not runny like most!) and... More

It's one of those non-descript looking places that turns into a real winner the moment they set your breakfast down in front of you. Be prepared for a wait if you go during busy times, but it's worth it. Everyone from locals to celebrities. Unquestionably the best place in the Valley for pancakes. Take a look at the specials on...

Given the raves this place received by fellow travelers at our Palm Springs timeshare, it's possible our expectations were simply too high. First rule of breakfast service: Pour the coffee quickly and keep the refills coming. Guess they haven't figured that one out. The wait staff does work really hard, but there are simply too many people packed into too... More

In Palm Desert once a year, and we always have to stop in at Keedy's. Old school, diner-type of eating. Open for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is my favorite meal, and they do it right. Lots of specials, B&G, etc. Always busy, but the wait is not long. Good service, coffe and water glasses are never empty. Whether it's eggs,... More

We went to Keedy's on the recommendation of a friend who is a long time visitor of Palm Desert. This is a very old style US eating place and has the local atmosphere that a first time visitor will cherish. It is definitely not 'boutique' style but is bustling and charming in its own way. The food was ok, we... More
