Having left Minnesota four years ago, there are a few venues that I truly miss and Keys is one of them. We had all of our kids and their significant others here. The staff was great to accommodate us all and even take our picture (and this on a busy Saturday morning). Our coffee cups were never empty as were... More

Service and food are always superb. Great comfort food (like a hug on a plate). Omelets and French Toast are a must try.

This is a great Cafe. The food is good & plentiful, the staff are friendly & efficient, they also have a baked goods counter where you pay. Stopped here for a family lunch, it was busy. Our waitress was very personable. We had average wait time for our food. Tried the Blue cheese sugared pecan chicken salad, it was pretty... More

Keys has been a reliable local multiple restaurant for many years. Great breakfasts, ample portions and a turkey dinner that's as good as home made. Gigantic cookies, and good variety. Very casual.

Service was outstanding. Menu is quite varied. Most of us went for breakfast foods at a late dinner. The consensus was that the omelets were great. The pancakes are large but not as fabulous as Ricky's Embers in Fridley MN. At Keys, they're proud of the size, but without a lot of syrup, not that exciting. Everything else though was... More

I have been to Keys restaurants in the past and always had a good experience. Not this time. There were a lot of people, which is probably to be expected on Sunday. Had to wait a long time for a waitress, for our drinks, for our food and just about anything you wanted. When our food finally came it didn't... More

I have only been there once, but will return. They treated us like we have been there many times, and I will take others there.

I like the unique Loon omelet that is filled with cheese, wild rice and tomato and covered with a mushroom cream sauce with a side of housemade toast and jam. Today I had the spinach omelet filled with cheese, spinach, mushrooms, tomato, bacon and sunflower seeds. My daughter always gets the monte cristo sandwich. My husband got the steak sandwich...
