If you're looking for a small, rustic feeling, busy atmosphere, this is your place. Seat yourself and prepare for large portions and of course all day breakfasts. Need a menu item adjusted? Don't be shy! Ask one of the super friendly, multi tasking staff to hook you up and you won't be disappointed. Take in the sounds of the kitchen, creakng wood floors, dishes and conversations. Food is delish. Cinnamon French toast (with peanut butter) is recommended. The size of the blueberry pancakes will make your head spin. Prices felt a tad high...but I'll be back for sure.

Keys is a friendly and very welcoming environment where you can always enjoy a breakfast no matter what time of day you stop in. Additionally, their customer service cannot be beat. I was wowed on my first visit and will not hesitate to ever stop again. On a side note, if it is not too busy, ask for Annie to be your server. She is fantastic. However, I am sure everyone else there is too. :)

You know I used to go to Keys all the time and always thought it was great. Well the last 2 times were so bad I will not be going back. Goodbye Keys. Visit 1: I recently went to the Larpenteur location and was greeted with an eyeroll by a teenage girl who asked me my name. It is "LONG" but I watched her and she wrote it down wrong 3 times and then told me wait, as she checked her iphone! Once seated, a lady I am sure was high, or on Pills or something took our order. My son ordered bacon and eggs and me too, with gluten free toast. She came back with Mickey pancakes and whipped cream. I said it must be someone elses order and she said "No I just thought he would like this better". I called for the manager, who talked to her, and she brought me the wrong order 3 times!!! Never did get my gluten free toast. I called the manager back and he tried to offer me a free cookie. I told him I'm not paying and left. Visit 2-Raymond (original Keys): The next visit I thought maybe it will be better at the original location. Not. I waited forever for my order to be taken. Then I called someone over and the lady finally came and I asked for a coffee. She brought me 2 coffees, one for my son who is 8! (huh) she then disappeared. I checked my watch and it was 17 minutes and it was not busy at all. When I asked for a manager she came back and said "I'm sorry, I just have a hard time paying attention when it's slow like this". I called the manager back over and he tried to offer me a free baked good. I declined. Then she never came back. The food was brought out by the cook, and I never got a refill on my coffee or a bill. I finally went up to pay and the lady at the counter reeked of cigarettes and refused to get off of her phone. She finally sighed, put down her phone, and asked how it was and I told her how horrible it was and how rude she was for being on her phone while I waited at the counter for a long time. She said "I'm sorry I was at the end of a level." BOYCOTT KEYS. Horrible human beings who don't deserve your money. Oh, and our order was 1 coffee, 1 side of bacon, 1 side of toast, cereal, and OJ. It was $18!!!!!!!!!!! I want you all to know that they have jacked their prices way up. A cup of coffee is close to $3. Save yourself and don't go to Keys.

Worst service ever on earth and discrimination towards African Americans!.The cashier who took out order was older woman in her 50s or so. She was rude and totally discriminating against us because we were African American. She greeted any white person that walked in, and said to us to wait outside. We will never go back to Raymond, Saint Paul location. Hope they replace her with someone who's less racist.

Server was great! Way too expensive for a piece of bread with an over done egg and cheese for $13! And no sides!

I have been here a handful of times. But this time was a total turn off and won't be back. I know on Sundays it can be busy waited about 15 min for a table not a big deal. When we got a table waitress was nice friendly placed are order. Sitting there talking with my wife looking around at the walls and photo's and see dust so thick hanging off them very gross. Even the sign when you walk in the door has dust hanging off it. But any way.waited over 25 min for food to come out.when it did mine a very simple ranch breakfast was cold wife had almost the same thing a #4 her sausage and eggs hot, Mine cold not even luke warm. So I gave it back did not eat did not want to wait. So my wife shared hers with me. All in all don't think I will be back just because of the dust literally hanging off every thing ready to drop on your head or in to your food. If the front of the house is that bad I can just imagine what the kitchen line looks like. The price for breakfast was way to much. The bill was $27 dollars #4 and #7 and two coffees. Sence I sent mine back the bill was $11.75 for a #4 and 2 coffee's #4 is 2 eggs toast and sausage way over priced .

This place is FANTASTIC! I'm sad to hear so many negative reviews from such a fantastic place. I've been here twice already, and have been to the Keys at the Foshay twice also. I must say I love both, the food is delicious. I ordered the everything omelet; superb. The homemade strawberry jam is to die for! It's just the right amount of sweet to kick start your day. The coffee is great and I got the chance to try the caramel pecan buns that one of the servers made. Amazing! The waitresses make the atmosphere a wonderful place to be in and really put a definition to what an american diner should be. I recommend it to all my friends, and especially my boyfriend because he is a huge fan of authentic American diners like these.
