Keke’s Breakfast Cafè is the in-thing among Orlando breakfast goers. There are a number of locations in Orlando, but I usually eat at the Waterford Lakes location. Keke’s is located at 504 North Alafaya Trail, across the street from the Waterford Lakes Town Center.
Keke’s is a few steps above its competitor, First Watch, in ambience, food quality, and food selection. I’ve eaten at this location a number of times, and I’ve tried something different each time. I’m particularly fond of the extra-large pecan pancakes. (I think I had these on more than one occasion.) Lately, I’ve been stuck on the French toast, and I can’t leave without an order of bacon. My daughter loves the Eggs Benedict and the home fries-sliced red skin potatoes. My friend almost always has an omelet. I have a sweet tooth, and I love pancakes, so I normally order pancakes, French toast, or waffles.
Keke’s is open for breakfast and lunch. I’ve eaten breakfast at Keke’s on many occasions, but I’ve never made it there for lunch. If it’s anything like breakfast, then it has to be worth the trip. The breakfast menu is quite extensive—assorted waffles (made with real whip cream), extra-large pancakes of multiple varieties, an impressive selection of French toast, omelets large enough for two, egg dishes, sides, and hot cereals. Breakfast ranges from $5.99 – $9.99 and more if you add sides and drinks. You’ll find panini, wraps, salads, sandwiches, and burgers on the lunch menu—breakfast is served all day. Lunch plates begin at $6.99 and range as high as $9.99, or more, depending on the sides. Kid’s menus are available for both breakfast and lunch.
I, for one, am glad Keke’s moved to Waterford Lakes. We needed a good breakfast spot on this side of town. If you’re a big fan of breakfast, then Keke’s is a must try on your dining wish list. The quality of the food is consistently excellent, the portions are larger than the price, and the service is attentive, warm, and friendly.
