Had our first experience with Keedy's - breakfast this morning. We heard that Keedy's had the best thin pancakes in the valley - and what we heard was right! Great family diner open for breakfast and lunch!

A good find...breakfast food is home style! Pancakes were a little thin, however! Try it...prices were reasonable! Wait staff were very good...quick to serve with no excuses! This little gem is tucked away in a strip mall area!

I enjoyed the throw back vibe.. But wish they cleaned the tables and menus off and get ride of sticky.. Was a fun place to visit with extensive menu.

Stopped here after doing the Bump and Grind hike! The Locals breakfast diner. Looks like nothing has changed in 50years. A big menu with something for everyone. Always crowed, and big portions. Not for foodies, and not the cleanest place.

Keedy's is one of Palm Desert's best kept secrets. I've visited this area for 40+ years and lived here for 15 and only discovered Keedy's last year. Their pancakes are absolutely the BEST I've ever tasted. Frankly, I don't even like pancakes much but these are melt in your mouth good. Freshest eggs, crisp bacon and a varied menu offering...

Saw great reviews for Keedy's, so went in for breakfast. It is true that the pancakes are very good, but sadly my husband's breakfast sausages were cold and hard, and my bacon was cold as well. Eggs just ok. And at $9.95 for their special, no toast, no hash browns, thought it a big on the steep side. Friendly service... More

Today was our second visit to Keedy's and it was just as good as our first visit in May. We have only been for breakfast but if you like an original diner this one was great. Started in 1957 and it is much the same now as it was back then

Ambiance hasn't changed in 20 years, not much. One of the deserts oldest restaurants goes back to the 1960's. Quality of the food is at best average, prices are to high for what you get, however their hard ice cream milk shakes are as good as you can get any place. Once every 3, or 4 months is about it...

Very, very busy during the season. Pancakes and Oatmeal are good. Service is so-so. Parking is generally easy, but sometimes we have had to wait for a table. Not a place to go to if you are on the run unless you go after season.
