I found this restaurant through my hotel. We wanted a good, down home breakfast and did this place really deliver. The sausage is hand made there as well as the Strawberry jam. I never tasted sausage that good. Seasoned perfectly. The strawberry jam has no preservatives and was to die for. I ended up buying 5 to-go containers of the... More

Key's on Robert is a smallish cafe with a very cozy feel. My trial team and I spent almost a month in St. Paul, and after a couple of weeks of free breakfast at the hotel, we needed to venture out Key's was a great choice. The signature Hobo breakfast was a feast of hash browns with onions and peppers... More

This café was just up the street from our hotel. We were able to get right in, even on a late Sunday morning, and were seated in their backroom, which appeared to be a new space they had annexed and hadn't fully integrated into the café. That said, they were closing for three days for renovation so that may change.... More

Went there on a Sunday morning. Lots of people came after church. Homemade food like mom used to make. I still cook like mom so for me it wasn't that special. But I'm sure many people will really enjoy it. Both my husband and I had the turkey dinner

Tonight, my friend & I stopped in to Keys Cafe on Robert St in St Paul. Past experiences I had there were good so, I was disappointed when the food was warmish. It still tasted okay but, I expected the dinner to be warmer, if not steamy. Also, had to remind the wait person that I had asked for a... More

I have been here before and was happy. I was there today. The bad service overshadowed the good food. I ordered a waffle, my companion the soup of the day. My waffle didn't come. He was finished with his soup when the server came over. (I had been unable to locate her previously) She said someone took her waffle that... More

We stopped here for brunch before heading to the Como Zoo. The service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious. I had an omelet and one of their amazing sticky buns. I would go back again and again!

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
