A Breakfast Must

If you like breakfast this is a must stop! A very cozy old school friendly "greasy spoon". The eggs were done perfect and the bacon was to die for and a generous portion.

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

this was recommended by a friend. What a great find. Had the best "Everything" omelet that I've ever had. Service was also top notch. Friendly, great service and great food. I will be back to try the lunch menu soon.

Old diner style restaurant, the interior looks like 1960's. The food was very good and the portions are old school as in big. My wife had the Italian Hash and I had the cinnamon french toast with bacon and hash browns on the side. It was more than we could eat. Coffee was only ok, not the best tasting but... More

I was taken here when visiting friends for a late breakfast - great service, great house coffee, EXCELLENT cinnamon French toast! It was so good that I kept wanting to go back just to have the French toast again (or try one of the many things that sounded good on the menu)! My friend got the Italian hash browns -... More

If you're looking for a superb breakfast (I had the mexican omelette) and a terrific "American Experience" then Keys is the place to go. The staff are exceptional and the atmosphere is authentic and friendly. This is honest-to-goodness cuisine designed to make you feel good and kick off your day in the best way possible!

This is the first of several classic Key's restaurants. Keys now has a number of restaurants in the metro area because have a great formula. Good, basic comfort food at reasonable prices, with friendly service. I've been at the original Keys on Raymond many times as have thousands of others. It's not nearly as fancy as some of their newer... More

Eggs Florentine to die for; perfect pancakes, a garden omelette to satisfy any appetite; great service and enough coffee to float a boat. Reasonable prices.

Keys still does breakfast the best of anyone. Lunch is great too with homemade soups and the best egg salad in town but I seem to end up at Keys for breakfast most often. It is my family's go-to place for breakfast and we are never disapointed. The wait staff at the Raymond Cafe are fabulous and we enjoy seeing... More

I was here for a business breakfast meeting and was pleasantly surprised. I had the farmer's omelet and it was absolutely delicious. Great portions and they also have pretty good coffee. Overall, everyone was happy with their meal. Definitely worth a try.
