I love places like this. Keedy's hasn't been remodel in decades and no one seems to care. The seats at the counter are like the seats in a 1940's movie about a soda fountain. On each table is one of those throwback napkin dispensers: Black and chrome. I had breakfast there about a year ago and there was plenty of... More

I dream of pancakes - really really good pancakes - so it's always sad when you have them somewhere (and you only allow yourself to eat them once every three or four months) and they disappoint ... ouch. Well, no worries at Keedy's - blueberry pancakes that are light as can be, with a perfect texture and a balanced array... More

Yep this is like going back in time to 1957, they could have filmed "Happy Days" in there. Authentic soda fountain seating, tables and chairs from the era, real milk shake machines, it's the real deal. Now for the best part, the food is really really good, so with all that this makes the place "really cool". Good menu reasonable... More

Had breakfast there which was good value, served very quickly and the food came out very promptly. My husband doesn't always always want breakfast food so was pleased to be able to order a burger which he liked a lot! My pancakes were much thinner then the usual ones elsewhere..not quite crepe like but very tasty . Would recommend if... More

This was my first visit to Keedy's. Not sure why I never knew about this delightful little hole in the wall with regulars from the 1950's. Although they have changed hands over the years, Keedy's still has that charming diner atmosphere with servers who are very attentive. We stopped in on our way out of town just before closing. The...

Got some feed back that this was a great place for an old fashioned malt, longing for the days of the hand dipped with the extra ice cream in the stainless steel cup I must say I was not disappointed. Go back a live an era gone by ....

My father in law suggested Keedy's as a last minute lunch stop. An institution was what he called it. I can see that. It has definitely been here forever. I had the Cobb Salad, my husband had the sandwich special & my father in law ordered the Chicken with Waffles special. My salad was tasty but nothing to write home... More

Every time we go to Palm Desert Keedys is a must for breakfast. They have the BEST pancakes. They are thin and not cakey.
