Keke's Breakfast Club in Melbourne appeared to be extremely clean - from the exterior (part of larger strip mall), the spotless bathrooms, and to the well-maintained and particularly clean dining area.

My wife and I were quickly greeted by a smiling hostess and taken to an interior table. Our request to sit by a window was graciously honored.

Our server was cheery, helpful, accommodating, attentive, and very experienced in her profession. We were informed that everything is freshly made and that the menu items can be modified to meet our needs. (Wow! What a pleasant change from being greeted with "No alterations or substitutions" being predominately plastered on the menu.)

The breakfast menu is very extensive with 11 choices of waffles ($5.99-$9.99), 8 types of pancakes (6.49-$9.99), 13 choices of stuffed & regular french toast ($6.49-$9.99), 11 types of omelets ($7.49-9.99; comes with homes fries and toast) plus 10 other types of egg dishes.

I had the Portabella Omelete. It contained a generous amount of sliced roasted portabella mushrooms, red peppers, and provolone cheese. It was accompanied with an ample serving of home fries and container of Pesto sauce on the side. The price was $9.99. The 3-egg omelete was fully cooked with the vegetables being al dente. The home fries were well-seasoned, but a bit over salted.

My wife's order of 2 slices of banana, pecan nut and caramel French toast with 2 slices of bacon demonstrated how the restaurant is geared to easily adapt the menu (and associated prices) to accommodate its diners. There was a price reduction for having 2 of the usual 3 slices of French bread and for 2 of the usual 4 prices of bacon. The bread slices were
Texas-sized, fully cooked and amply covered with sliced bananas, pecan pieces and caramel sauce. They were a delectable slice of heaven.

Both orders were plated in a visually attractive and skilled manner.

The coffee was flavorful and hot, but oh so slightly weak. It certainly was some of the better coffee I've had in this type of restaurant in a while. Seemingly-endless refills are included included in the $2.50 charge including a cup to go. Nice touch!

With such a wonderful dining experience, it is hard to reconcile that Keke's Breakfast Club in Melbourne is part of a larger franchise corporation with 8 restaurants (with 3 more opening soon) in Florida . The Melbourne store does not appear to have lost any of its quality control.

My only regret is that we are not staying in Melbourne long enough to savor all of the items on the breakfast menu.

My family and I went here for breakfast and greatly enjoyed the food. The waffles and pancakes are out of this world. They were the size of an entire plate. The fruit was fresh and it all tasted wonderful. There was a bit of a wait to get into the place but we were glad we waited for it.

Clean and neat. Fresh and healthy fare. No country fried steak or corned beef hash. The portions were very large and the food was delicious. Would definitely come back. Glad we found it.

My first visit was fine; second was terribly disappointing. For a party of seven, food took nearly an hour to arrive and all lunches came at a different time. The owner/ manager refused to apologize or accept any responsibility. When the food finally arrived, the waffles were cold and tough. The owner's attitude was shocking, in an industry where service quality determines success. I would love to like this restaurant, Melbourne needs more good breakfast joints, but I'll likely not give this place another chance under current management.

Great stuffed French toast, very good omelets, and tummy home fries. Very clean and nice atmosphere, but a tad on the pricey side, will be coming back though.
