Keys Cafe on Raymond Ave (the original location of the notorious Twin Cities mini chain) holds a small-town-fall in a big-city-atmosphere. Upon walking in, you'll be greeted with a coffee station (the locally sourced brew is average but nostalgic) and the vibes of a homey...More

The food is great, our waitress didn't even write any of our orders down (8 of us) and got everyone of them perfect. The food was amazing and huge portions at good prices. I ordered 2 eggs and 2 pancakes and I could only eat...More

This place is often very busy, which tells you folks like it. I have gone to Keys for both breakfast and lunch quite a few times over the past few years, and always get good food and leave full. They really pack people into the...More

The breakfast was good. It is not excellent or particularly special. It is a popular place and it is well-established. I go there on Mother's Day after the Friends Plant sale and before the state fair.

This Key's has mostly the same menu as the other local Key's around the cities but is pretty much the opposite vibe of the one in Roseville. This place looks like it was born in the 50's and has never closed. Good food as always,...More

We were in St. Paul and wanted to be able to walk from Double Tree hotel to eat breakfast. This café is about a 4 block walk, mostly in skyway. The food was very good and large servings. The coffee was great and filled often...More

Great place for a business breakfast. Menu is reliable and food is always well-prepared. Service is friendly and the coffee keeps coming. LOVE the homemade jam with toast. Atmosphere is funky; very 1970s.

We met friends for lunch in this traditional, old-style cafe. The server, clearly a veteran at her trade, pulled up a chair and sat with us while she took our order. She returned with very large portions of omelets, sandwiches, and salads. The made-to-order omelet...More
