This is a busy and tight location to get breakfast. The service is fantastic with very attentive to what you need. There is a large amount of gluten-free options including French toast.

This place seems fairly jam packed full of people on the weekend. Regardless, we walked in and were seated immediately because we were a table for two. Service was quick and our waitress was super friendly. I had the daily special which was just ok. Nothing in particular wrong with the food, it just seemed somewhat like normal brunch food.... More

One of my favorite things to do when I have a day off is to start it with my book and breakfast at Keys. I love their everything omelet, the home made bread and the home made strawberry spread....YUM! Can't wait for my next day off!

Met a business associate for breakfast at Keys Cafe. Casual atmosphere, good service and great food. I had a ham & spinach omelette. The ham was legit (not that thinly sliced stuff you get at some places), the spinach fresh and the omelette itself sizable. Enjoy.

We met some friends for lunch at Keys. We were to be seated quickly. We were thankful for this because one of our friends recently had surgery. The service was exceptional. The food was great, and a good value.

Came across this little gem while out for a walk. Classic old building provided for a great environment. A bit clangy and noisy however not a big issue as we enjoyed our conversation without issue nor need to yell across the table. Went in for late breakfast early lunch and enjoyed it so much I nearly licked the plate clean.... More
