Kelcy's is an old staple of Tehachapi with deep roots and loads of history. I always love going in and looking at the historic photos and items on display. Many of which I can retell the stories behind them because of my father or of having lived through some of them. I will say the menu does need to be... More

Stopped by here on my way through Tehachapi. This restaurant is in the old historic portion of Tehachapi in an old historic building so the decor/furnishings may not be what some might like but it is a clean establishment with very friendly and efficient service. There is also plenty of free parking available on the main street in front of... More

Went here to take a friend from England for a typical American Breakfast and she was not disappointed. It's a great place for breakfast and lunch, parking is easy and the staff are super friendly. There are some amazing photos to examine throughout the restaurant, but we love the diner part with its booths.

Visited and took pics of pics on walls. This place has been in Tehachapi and family owned for many years. Still styled like a 1950s diner. Wonder pictures and artifacts on walls displaying the history of the town. Worth a stop in when passing through the town.

We ate here while visiting family in the area. Back in the day, my grandmother was a waitress here! Been here several times over the years as a family gathering spot. Food was great too - we ate here for breakfast. Staff is so nice and the portions are huge, it's a must do in Tehachapi

This is a cute little family restaurant and it feels like the locals frequent here. The wait staff call some of their clientele by name.

An old diner that has been maintained but not modernized. Lots of menu choices, clean tables, pleasant service. We ordered sandwiches and enjoyed them. Interesting displays of Tehachapi history.
