This restaurant has no curb appeal. But don't let the nondescript building and entrance deter you. The food and service are worth it. The one room restaurant seats about 70 people but it doesn't have a crowded feeling. The kitchen is centrally located between the two ding areas. Their homemade soups are flavorful and delicious. Most of what's on the menu is comfort food, stuffed tomatoes, green peppers, meatloaf sandwiches etc. The platters are just the right size not oversized portions. The service is amazingly fast and very friendly. We've been back several times and will continue to go. We have only been there for lunch.

This is a popular family place with breakfast and lunch. Family cooks and serves. Food is consistent. Busy with regulars . It's been here forever and many local celebrities will just come here and blend in with the crowd because it's unpretentious. Great value. Bland decor but that's the idea. Good food. Fast service. Hang out, they will get to know you and you will probably be a regular.

We discovered Kay's by accident and what a happy accident it was. It's a very nondescript looking place from the outside, nothing special on the inside, but the food is very, very good and reasonably priced. We usually go on a Thursday because that's they day they make Wedding Soup, which is my favourite. I have a big bowl and a Chicken Mediterranean Salad. I have never seen so much chicken on a salad and it is scrumptious - tender and perfectly seasoned. My sweetie usually has an omelette and it is huge. We never leave hungry after a meal at Kay's. The only thing I would change is to put a wee bit more room between the tables to avoid having people bumping into your chair when they sit down or get up. Other than that, no complaints!

Having relocated to Florida, we were in search of a new breakfast/lunch spot that was both tasty and affordable. Kay's is it! Great coffee, hash browns, pancakes. Service is superb and very quick. This place is hoppin' on the weekends but even with a full house, food arrives quickly. Glad we found this local treasure.
