We stopped at the cafe in large part because of the excellent reviews and were surprised to find the cafe did not live up to them. Maybe we caught them on an off day. You order at a window outside, then take your ticket inside to pick out a canned or bottled beverage and pay. Then you come back out... More

Super sweet staff and super great food! Especially recommend the conch (in all of its forms) or the fish tacos. Great location if you're on commute to other keys - it's right off of the highway and is super easy to get to. Also have hamburgers, etc for the kiddies that don't like seafood.

Trip Advisor has never steered us wrong & Key Lime Cafe was no exception. My wife searched it out on the drive down to Big Pine Key, & its small, roadside location caused us to drive right past it at first. But I'm glad we turned around! It is small, so if there is a crowd there might be a... More

We arrived after a drive down from Naples. We arrived at 1240 and had been excited by the good reviews. When we ordered they had no seafood left so we ordered a hotdog and a hotdog platter..... going back up to the counter and they then also had not fries.... we waited over 25 minutes for the hotdogs for the...

the wife and I had the key lime pie with whipped cream. SOOOOOO GOOD! well worth the spot and the backyard cabana was nice. There were iguana's running around which the kids enjoyed and the hammock was a nice touch.

Our family stopped here on the side of the highway after we did the amazing John Pennenkamp glass bottom boat tour. The food was delicious! We recommend the fish tacos and cracked conch...the batter is amazing and the fries are fresh!

The place is really attractive with lots of small details both inside the shop and outside all around. We were not impressed by the woman behind the counter. She seemed to be more interested in her tips than anything else. I have to say we didn't taste the great reviews in the conch fritters and fries. Didn't even think about... More

We flew into Miami on a morning flight, rented a car and headed to Key West. A friend had recommended the Key Lime Cafe in Key Largo as a lunch stop. It is a small roadside store with an outdoor window for ordering food. Customers sit at shaded outdoor picnic tables in a pretty garden area - very informal. The... More
