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...

Love the milk shakes. Great little place for Sunday lunch. I always have to bring my dad here when he come to town.

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

Many restaurants in the Palm Desert area are a little pricey. But this place is great! Fantastic service and great food......and all for a fair price. The burrito was very good. Extensive breakfast menu and very friendly!

Went for breakfast twice in two days. It's a good place for breakfast with good foods and relatively fast services. Tables are first come first so make sure you are there early for table otherwise you can sit at the counter. Parking is not an issue with parking in the back or in front. Large selection on the menu with... More

In business, with a few owners, since 1957, this place maintains it's original vibe with vinyl in tact. Lots of loyal patrons and tourists but the staff amazingly gives you prompt and attentive service. And, it's great grub. Check out the daily specials.

After reading that Keedy's is an institution and that it's highly recommended by Palm Desert residents, decided to have breakfast on our first day. Breakfast was okay but nothing special and same with the service. I ordered huevos rancheros while my husband ordered the keedy's breakfast. The eggs were cooked to my liking but the rancheros sauce was simply canned... More

Since opening in 1957, Keedy's has seen the desert go through many changes, but he restaurant has stayed exactly the same Great food, prompt service & a very reasonable price. Breakfast was excellent! Crispy bacon, fluffy hash browns & a friendly coffee refill before you know you need it. All at under $10.
