Gluten Free pancake deliciousness!

A rarity, but a location with very good GF pancakes! Cakey and puffy and fall apart goodness! A great cup of coffee and some cakes to warm you up on a cold fall or winter day! My friends choose the gluten free over the regular because they're just so darn good!

The food was so full of flavor it was amazing. Service from Josie was as bright as her pretty smile. The entire staff was constantly wiping and cleaning when not serving. The owner, Carol, absolutely shone with pride at her wonderful place. We liked it so much we returned the next day with more family! We will be back! Oh... More

We liked it so much, we ate breakfast here twice. Great food, good service. Metered parking out front. I had eggs Benedict. My husband had an omelette with sausage so good, he ordered it again the next day. Everything served with homemade jam.

Food is ok nothing special, but the service is very slow. This is a typical place for breakfast after church or a place to have coffee.

My husband and I took our 1 year old here last weekend, hoping for that same experience we remembered from years past where we would come to keys on a Sunday morning for a hardy, big breakfast in a place with a diner like coziness... Not sure if we have changed or Key's changed.. It didn't feel as cozy or... More

This restaurant is always busy, with a lot of business people meeting for lunch. Huge selection of food. Breakfast is served anytime. The service is always friendly. The fish sandwich is my favorite.

I have eaten at other Key's and the food and service is always great! The breakfast we so good. Best Eggs Florentene I have ever had. Sauce seemed homemade, hashbrowns were hand cut and buckwheat pancakes awsome! Clean, comfortable and reasonable place to eat downtown St. Paul. I would come again in a heartbeat!

The dining room is a little crowded and the waitstaff pretty harried but the breakfast food rocks! The only thing that could make it better was if you could have a bloody mary or mimosa as well.

Key's is a good place to go for breakfast but we were disappointed with lunch. The chicken salad sandwich was mediocre. The homemade wheat bread was on the dry side, and they definitely need to find a different source for their tomatoes! We saw beautiful, red tomatoes at the Farmer's Market nearby, yet the tomato used to garnish the sandwich... More
