A caramel rolls are amazing!!!!Although I totally did not need to order one with how big and yummy my farmers omelette was. I love how they put the hashbrowns inside! Great spot for breakfast!

Had breakfast here on the way down to Chicago, very nice place for a meal. I was there early and the only customer in, so service was quick. Good selection on the menu. The waitress recommended the Farmers Omelet special at $7.50, so I went for that. Very good serving, filled me for the day. Very clean place. Goes on... More

What a great place for breakfast and baking. Was looking for a local breakfast place and found this one through TripAdvisor. Was not disappointed in going here. I had eggs and sausage and my wife had an omelette. Both were done to our liking. We didn't eat any baking but I did speak with the baker herself. What a wonderful... More

I love Keys. Was so excited almost a decade ago when this iconic family run business opened in Hudson. This location doesn't make it when it comes to the level of food prep. A couple of servers are on top of their game. Step it up on the quality of what comes out of the kitchen. Mama's standards aren't up... More

Although the place is busy and noisy we got pretty decent service and the food was great. Two had the special Stuffed French Toast and it was quite different but good, other two had huge delicious omelets.

Great "everything" omelette!! Was passing through and had to get some work done. A friend recommended the cafe. The server got me a quiet table with power. Food was delicious, server and staff very helpful and professional. Great sweet items as well!

Good food and serving sizes. Always a busy place and good service. Because of the high levels of traffic, place needs some fix-up work. They have old favorites and some surprising twists to old favorites.

We were here on the 4th of July so not surprised if the wait and kitchen staff were a bit slim that day...the service was not very great, the food took awhile to come out although the restauarant was maybe half full and the server was not very attentive or speedy.. BUT the food was so delicious I forgot all... More

Go in every once and a while for a sweet treat to go. My favorite is the blueberry pie! They have a variety of cakes, cookies, and cinnamon and caramel rolls. It's all been very good except I myself do not care for almond flavoring in frosting, and a few of their desserts have it. But I ask before I... More
