Good American Food With Decent Prices.

The breads are what draw you in; the fast service and decent prices are what keep you going back for more. Large location and knowledgeable staff; the food is good and always served with a smile. I would suggest any of the burgers (they are huge!) or the Southwestern hash.

This was a quaint little restaurant. Our server was happy and made us feel very welcome. The food was delicious although I did order the veggie scramble which was a little pricey and could've fed three people. Otherwise pleasant experience.

I love this family run place. They have the best cinnamon rolls in the world and you can get breakfast all day. The sausage is excellent as is the bacon. Homemade jam is delicious. The coffee never stops flowing and the waitstaff is truly dedicated. Eggs done to perfection! My hash browns could have been a bit crispier, but the... More

We recently had breakfast here after spending a night in St. Paul. It was within walking distance and I had eaten at Keys in Forest lake, MN which was much better. The food was very bland and there was nothing special about it. It was not busy but it still took an hour. I would look for another spot for... More

The original Raymond Street locaton is old, funky and a pleasant place to squeeze into a booth and eat, but the food and service are really just OK, not much more than that.

We were on our way to Como Park, and not being from the area, just looked up a random place on Google in the car on the way. We found a gem! The food was really good. We ordered standard lunch fare, but I think we would have done better to order breakfast--that seemed to be their specialty looking at... More

If you LOVE breakfast, you will love Key's Cafe. I have been to a few locations and the quality of the food has been consistent. If you love pancakes...get ready for platter sized awesomeness! My personal favorite is the french toast. YUM! :-) Great value!

I have enjoyed many past visits at Keys. My brother and I go there everytime he visits.My most recent visit last Saturday was very disappointing. First, the servers were slow and surly. Second, Keys is known for their excellent soups. When the server came to take our orders, we were told that there were no soups, and that we could... More

I've been to the Robert street location twice and have not been impressed. The food is not very good. The bacon is bland and the cinnamon rolls don't taste like cinnamon, just over-flavored almond icing. Their online menu doesn't include prices, so apparently they know the prices are too high. The service is also very slow and the servers are... More
