If your going to keys bring your appetite! The portions are generous in anything you order and we always bring home left overs no matter what we order. Friendly staff are a bonus. The space is small but they move you in and out pretty quick with out feeling rushed. It's a must to visit

Key's is a downtown White Bear Lake landmark featuring the best breakfasts in the St. Paul area. The service at this family owned business is attentive and friendly. The portions are ample and the pricing is quite reasonable. You may have somewhat of a wait on Saturday and Sunday mornings due to the popularity of Key's but it is worth... More

This is the place to eat a huge delicious breakfast. The omelets are the biggest and best in town. My husband enjoyed his meal. I ordered the steak breakfast, steak was thin and over cooked. Not crazy about their homemade jam...it's sour...not sweet. This place is always busy, so plan on waiting a while.

Keys is generally a good place to go for tasty food and good conversation. However yesterday was less than stellar for the Blue & Pecan salad at the White Bear Lake Keys. The size of the salad was generous, sliced strawberries good considering the season, candied pecans overwhelming in quantity and the blue cheese absent. Oh, it was in the... More

You will not be disappointed if you go to any Key's Cafe & Bakery. The food is out of this world. The service is wonderful also. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Make sure to save room for dessert or get it to go. You won't be sorry.

Key's has been in White Bear Lake as long as I can remember. It is a perfect meeting place for friends as well as family dinners. I love their breakfast menu, especially their omelets. Great coffee with free refills. Their Key's cake or cupcakes are the best I have ever had. We order this cake for all special occasions. It... More
