Great Breakfast

We tried this place for brunch on the recommendation of a local friend who joined us for the meal. It was a meal that I believe all five in our group enjoyed. The coffee was good to start things off and the Italian sausage patty I got with my eggs was very tasty (although I ended up tasting it... read more

My wife and I took a walk from our hotel and found Keys Café just a block or so away. They are locally owned and offer a unique atmosphere. We tried some different menu items for dinner that we aren't able to get back home. I had the hot sub sandwich which was very good with tater tots. They have... More

Read the reviews on here and had to try this place. I am glad i did. As you know from my past reviews, when its breakfast i always try the corned beef hash. This one was outstanding. Homemade with lots of potatoes. Done to perfection. They also have italian hash which is supposed to be just as good. If i... More

We were promptly greeted by our waiter who offered suggestions and mentioned fresh squeezed orange juice. While not the cheapest place in town, I ordered the Eggs Benedict and it was a very hearty breakfast full of flavor. My companion ordered a choose your own ingredient omelet that ended up being pretty pricey but was still worth it. At Key's... More

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel clerk. The breakfast was reasonable and the food was very good. The bacon was crisp, as ordered and the bread seemed home made. The best was the warm cinnamon roll with warm butter. It is a must.

Enjoyed breakfast from an extensive menu. Customers have the option of dining indoors (noisy) or al fresco (weather permitting) on the sidewalk. Casual atmosphere. Decent prices. Recommend.

If overpriced basic breakfast items are your thing, you will love Keys! Basic menu with classic breakfast items - American cheese seems to be a staple. The prices are absolutely insane - the last time I was there I ordered a ham and cheese omelet and a coffee and my total with tip came to just under $25. The only... More

Came here twice-once for happy hour and once for brunch. Both times had great experiences. For happy hour they have multiple price points depending on how much you want but all very good and affordable. Brunch options were great as well. It can get pretty busy, but not overly loud.
