A standard diner / cafe with booths and separate tables but best known for its large selection of original and typical omelets. Their bisquits and gravy are also very good. All portions are generous and the ham steak breakfast fills the entire plate almost. Other...More

I have dined here numerous times over the years. I understand the mixed bag of reviews! The place is a bit dingy and outdated; service varies depending on who's on and how busy they are. That said, the food is usually very good. Their breakfast...More

These people make serious omlets, too many types to count on the menu. And they are willing to do special orders as well. They serve tasty sides including outstanding home fries. Down home feel and very friendly waitresses make you feel welcome.

Look at the photo, Alan P. and check the address. This is a great breakfast place. There is a Kelcy's also on Tehachapi blvd., but this is Kelley's on Brian Way. Sheesh. They have a great menu and friendly, "down home" service.
