Love this place! The GF pancakes are amazing, I've never gotten sick eating them, add blueberries to make them even better. The atmosphere is one of the loveliest in the area, cozy and friendly and fun (watched the cooks dance as the made food!). The GF toast is no so great, it's thin and grainy (it's Udi's, so meh) and also doesn't have a dedicated toaster. I've gotten contaminated from it. Never had an issue with the pancakes, I just wish they had GF Buckwheat pancakes. Their buckwheat were the best.
My mother and I both got sick. May have been an off day? Our server was not good and it seemed like we were a burden to him for asking about the gluten free. I had a great experience in the Roseville location...
They have gluten-free toast on the menu but the waitress told me that it goes in the same toaster as normal bread and they have no other options except having it untoasted. They also have a shared griddle that they do not clean for gluten-free customers. That being said, I had a delicious steak & cheese sandwich. So just be aware that their advertised gluten-free items may not actually be celiac safe, make sure to ask your waitress.
Really good GF pancakes and waffles. Staff was knowledgeable about GF and friendly. Location is tiny and very busy while we there, but food was worth the wait.
Waffle was delicious and staff took great care to make my food separate (took a little longer than everyone else's) - would recommend
Went here for lunch and it was great! keys had a lot of options for me being dairy and gluten free. But be careful as they do share the same kitchen space.
Literally the best gluten free pancakes I have ever had. And they are bigger than your head. I would suggest sharing. So good and I didn't get sick
I wish I'd seen the other review mentioning shared equipment and utensils before going here. I had an omelet and later was sick from the cross contamination.
Great diner style breakfast options. Went on a weekend morning...get there early there will be a wait!
They cook off their food on the same griddle with the same utensils.
Classic diner experience with very good gluten free options. Waffles with fresh strawberries were fantastic!
Gluten free bread, buns, pancakes and waffles. Great breakfast place.
I used to eat there a lot. Then I got Dx with Celiac. Went for pancake & I thought it was exactly like a regular pancake. Next time the pancake was obviously GF. My guess, the wait person didn't put in correct order or cook screwed up. Luckily I was still going through Gluten withdrawls & blamed everything on that back then 🙄
The waitress did not know what Celiac was and was not sure how some things were cooked. In order to get something I could eat they charged me extra for a salad with my bun less burger. I will not be going there again.
I've eaten at Keys for years, once I found out they had a lot of gf options for breakfast. The pancakes are equally as generously enormous as the wheat kind and fill or overhang the plates, fluffy and great tasting. GF bread is available for sandwiches and toast HOWEVER, it is more than disappointing that they use a SHARED TOASTER (the rotating wire coveyor kind) which for very sensitive people is quite risky. Over the years my sensitivity has declined with strict adherence, so a very minor glutening isnt near what it used to be, so I have had their toast on and off and have been lucky so far to have had no issues. But consumer beware!! ALSO, this Keys location clearly has not trained their kitchen staff on the gfree toast because unless I specifically ask for it to come out "dry" half the time it comes out with butter already on it, which is done by a common use melted butter container and a brush!!! So I say, the heck with toast, go for the pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream, or blueberries mixed in... they're to die for! Omlets are consistently good too!
I’ve always ordered GF pancakes (and yes, they’re just as big as the regular ones,) and bacon; I haven’t gotten sick once)I have Celiac Disease and am very sensitive to cross contamination.)
I ordered a tuna sand which on gf bread and was given a tuna sand which on regular, gluten-filled bread. Thankfully I recognized it and sent it back without eating it. My daughter ordered a burger with no bun. It arrived with weird yellow stuff on it. I asked and was told the cook accidentally put cheese on it and then scraped it off. The house gf chocolate cupcake is super dry. I thought it was inedible. Our server was nice and took some money off our bill, but I won't be back.
