Short walk from the Hilton. Great breakfast and warm, friendly staff. Our family tried the omelet, buckwheat pancakes, and corned beef hash. Fresh squeezed oj. Everything was excellent! Cinnamon roll was a great treat to start the meal. Soooo good!

Went here when visiting for a work trip. Good breakfast - i got pancakes and hashbrowns. They have awesome fresh squeezed grapefruit juice! Only thing that was annoying was items are one price and then anything extra can be added... for a hefty price. Real maple syrup was a $2-3 upcharge. Cheese on hashbrowns was $3 extra. Kind of annoying... More

So we stopped to eat breakfast at the Keys Café at the Foshay in Minneapolis and was pleasantly surprised at how good our meal was. We have not had good experiences with other Keys locations so we were happy with this visit. The only complaint we had was it was a bit pricey for a café. 7.99 for building a... More

I liked everything about this place - even the decaf coffee! Great quality food, decent prices and a great location. This is a local hotspot so if you're in the mood, go here!

Keys consistently delivers excellent food. Great menu with lots of options. One of the best places to get breakfast in the Twin Cities.

I had the 2 eggs hashbrowns and a side of sausage way more food than I could eat. My husband had a omlet which was delicious The... More

A colleague and I stopped in for coffee and ended up just having to have a second breakfast. The food looked phenomenal and it tasted the same. The coffee was great and our service was very friendly. Priced reasonably and easily accessed from anywhere downtown - located in the Foshay Tower.

Had brunch on a Sunday morning. It was very crowded but well worth the 15 minute wait. I had eggs, hash browns and buckwheat pancakes. My friend had the Italian sausage hash. Both were excellent and the buckwheat pancakes were fantastic. Our waitress was excellent and told us that the restaurant split plates at no extra charge so my friend... More

I was excited to try Key's Cafe as I have heard such great things about it. I am sad to say I was not impressed. A business associate and I stopped by for soup and a sandwich and it almost took a magnifying glass to see the egg salad in my sandwich. Not only was there very little in it,... More
