Diner styled restaurant with lots of tables and counter seating too. Always busy for breakfast and many coming for their light, fluffy pancakes that satisfy with out the heavy overstuffed feeling.A long tradition in Palm Desert that reeks of the fifties. Fast service.

Classic diner experience, but not cheap as you think! Food is average, place is noisy. A popular place with the locals and tourists alike. You think it would be cheaper, but its not, 2 simple diner breakfasts will set you back $25USD.

I saw all the 4 and 5 star ratings, but think it was more of a 3.5 star rating. Food was good enough, but very salty, yet tasty. Service was friendly enough. There is nothing classy about this place, but you will be satisfied. For...More

We felt like we stepped back into the fifties when we set foot in Keedy’s. Tasty, hearty breakfast with a throwback vibe, complete with aqua-cushioned barstools. I had the eggs Benedict, which came with a far bigger portion of ham than I personally like, but...More

What a fun, old school diner (opened in 1957) this is! The counters and stools are perfection. I would have liked to take a closer look at all of the photos and newspaper clippings on the walls, but didn’t want to be peer over customers...More

Aside from the great food here, you simply cannot be the service. Within one minute of being seated, we had ordered our drinks, which arrived one minute later. We followed with a BLT sandwich and a Patty Melt. Both were delicious and served less than...More

I have never had a date shake at Keedy's and did not know that they served them. However, all of Keedy's shakes are blended the old fashioned way and are very thick and tasty. If they serve a date shake then I am sure they... More
