Read reviews of Kelly’s & felt it was a breakfast spot worth checking out. We have given Kelly’s ‘3 rating’ as it was average in selection, taste & pricing. Great for someone looking for a basic breakfast menu

We consistently come here when we want a good breakfast. I usually order the classic eggs benedict which I love! They try to use local ingredients which is awesome. I highly recommend this restaurant. The burgers are fabulous as well.
