fast service to, easy location from the Hilton to walk to, always something to like on the menu, average prices (not exorbitantly high like hotel eateries). Great sandwiches and sweets. good friendly service too.

If you're looking for good food without spending lots of cash, head to Keys in the Foshay Tower. Diner food, lots of it, good prices. Daily specials always interesting.

I stopped in quickly to grab a carmel roll to go. Not as fantastic as what I remember, as it has been a few years since I'd been there. Barely any carmel...a far cry from what they use to be when they were loaded with carmel! Not sure what happened to their fantastic rolls! very sad

Had breakfast. The eggs benedict were the best. My friend got sausage and did not want it. Their loss. It was a big as a McD's Quarter Pounder. Great flavor for the sausage as well.

Home style food with great desserts and fun atmosphere. Something for everyone! Had turkey and dressing, but there was meatloaf and all your family favorites on the menu. They also serve breakfast all day long.

It's not the cheapest place you could call on for breakfast at 2PM, but when you work downtown, Keys' delivery of massive buckwheat pancakes and a delicious omelet simply cannot be beat! A bit greasy on the whole but friendly, efficient staff and massive portions make this a must for your midday cravings!

We stayed at the Hotel W in Minneapolis and for breakfast we went "next door" to the Keys Cafe. It was 10:30 am when we arrived on a Sunday and the place was totally packed. A table anywhere was a 15 minute wait, so we opted to sit at the bar. Our bar server was terrific: friendly (but not too... More

Keys has been around for a long time with several locations around the Twin Cities. Always good food, reasonable prices and good service. You will not be disappointed!

While in Minneapolis on business, my group wanted to try somewhere close to our hotel (Hilton). We gave this establishment a go and to our surprise we were pleased. Not only were we seated promptly we were greeted by our server who was friendly and ready to take our drink orders. He then offered his suggestions, which was needed as... More
