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...More

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...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.

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.

The dining room is a little crowded and the waitstaff pretty harried but the breakfast food rocks! The only thing that could make it better was if you could have a bloody mary or mimosa as well.

Key's is a good place to go for breakfast but we were disappointed with lunch. The chicken salad sandwich was mediocre. The homemade wheat bread was on the dry side, and they definitely need to find a different source for their tomatoes! We saw beautiful,...More
