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

I have been here a handful of times, always with a work group for lunch, but the food is a constant "thumbs up!" Always I have ordered breakfast foods and have never been disappointed. The biscuits & gravy is a huge plateful of food and the hashbrowns are de-lish - cooked to a perfect crisp, but not "too well done".... More

Stopped in for a tasty treat on my way home from sightseeing. They had lots to choose from as far as pastry and pies went, I almost got a lemon iced cookie but opted for the cherry pie instead. The pie looked nice and had good flavor, but unfortunately there just wasn't enough cherries in it. There was so much... More

I ate at the Robert St location and was shocked at their prices especially for simple breakfast food. Since it was close to lunch time I ordered a bowl of chili. It came out lukewarm, even the cheese wouldn't melt. So (after several minutes of waiting to catch a server) I asked them to heat it up and it came... More
