Gluten Free pancake deliciousness!

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!

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!

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

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.
