The food here is wonderful and just what you'd expect. Breakfasts, Burgers, Grilled Cheese, Shakes. They are a breakfast and lunch place. And there is usually a wait at breakfast, especially 'on season' You will be stepping back in time to 1957. I read the couple of negative reviews and while I understand what they mean I totally disagree with... More

We walked in with our expectations too high I guess. Breakfast was good but nothing special. I would eat there again but wouldn't go out of the way to do so. Service was good and the location is good. No complaints.

I think Keedy's makes the best date shakes in the whole desert and I grew up coming to our winter home here in the desert. I think they've been open since the early 1950's and it truly feels like a timewarp when you walk in--and I love the nostalgia of it! While they're known for their diner fare, I love... More

Agree with what others have to say about keedy's. Good breakfast served all day, unbelievable floats and malts. They are little pricey but there is enough for 2. The burger at first seemed a little small but the flavor was fantastic. Nice service. Fun for the kids.

It's the pancakes! The best around. And who can resist the best date shakes in the desert. Add to the mix their double cheese Keedys burger and you're ready for your afternoon nap! Nostalgic diner open since 1957 and it's a delicious time warp.

The same year that I was established! This is an old time diner. In fact, the original Formica is still on the counter and is worn off in front of each stool. According to the menu, the locals don't want any changes. I had carne asada but a lot of people were ordering breakfast.

Old fashioned diner in the heart of Palm Desert. Friendly service and the food came quickly. All the usual diner fare, burgers, sandwiches and full breakfasts. We went for breakfast. Food arrived quickly, was hot and tasty. Coffee was also good. The only down side was that I found it a bit expensive for what was delivered. If this was... More

Prices at the dumpy café have simply gone out of sight. 3 thin but admittedly excellent pancakes for $7.35. And a cup of very poor coffee for $2.60.

We've been to Keedy's 3 times for breakfast and have never been disappointed. My husband and I are following the Paleo diet and they were very accommodating, giving us fresh fruit in place of the hashbrowns and toast. We've never had a bad breakfast here.
