About
The Seaside Cafe at the Southernmost Mansion is a family-owned and operated Island eatery just a few steps from the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. A new addition to the Key West landscape, but already well known for island classics such as their Mansion Mojitos, Honey-Butter Lobster Biscuits, and stunning artisan wood-fired pizzas. The Seaside Cafe is located on the grounds of Southernmost House, a charming Victorian mansion on the "quiet end" of Duval Street.

My husband and I came here for dinner tonight. We got the Coconut shrimp which was excellent with a very unique pina coloda white dipping sauce. Very tasty. Then fr dinner we had the lobster pizza. We have our own pizza oven at home and...I have never thought to put lobster on pizza but I will now. The pizza was amazing. Very tasty and delicious. For dessert we had the key lime pie. Which I have to say I never liked back home it was always too tart, in key west it was totally different and really good. Throughly enjoyed dinner and you will too.More

This is one of those reviews you are somewhat reluctant to write because it means this out-of-the-way café, serving top-notch food is going to get flooded with customers! That said, this lovely little spot would be totally deserving of such an influx! This is not...a rowdy bar for the spring break crowd. This seaside café is for couples, families, and friends who like to hear each other speak over the gentle sound of the ocean breeze. Such a great spot for lunch and drinks with the family! My husband and I started with the poke cups; the tuna was fresh, the aïoli was delicious, and the plantain cups were crunchy and completely delightful! We then shared the lobster pizza and marveled at each bite. It was as though even the cheese was infused with lobster goodness. The kids shared a cheese pizza and loved their pink lemonades. We drank a couple of Tito’s daily cocktails, enjoyed the view, and didn’t feel rushed to clear the table. It was the first time during our trip to the Florida Keys where the view actually matched the food (if you go out to eat in the Keys, you know that the places that advertise their views sometimes skip on delivering good food. Not the case here at all!) Kip was a wonderful host who made sure we got a beautiful table. We thank him, in particular, for our lovely dining experience. Do yourself a favor and, in addition to visiting the southernmost buoy, pay a visit to this hidden gem 💎More

Went to get lunch Seaside cafe . Greeted Maitra D Kip and told me my cute daughter better have good fake ID! It was her fithy birthday. Nice! He sat us almost 5 feet from the ocean! We were led to our table by an...amazing fellow named Kip who regaled us all the way to our table with his wry sense of humor, as well as explaining the simple menu to us. I was there with my wife of 25 yrs for our anniversary and we had one of their marvelous little pizzas with truffle oil that was to die for, washed down with a margarita and a delicious mohito. We are in the keys for the first time and we already have a favorite place! Food:excellent!, drinks: even better! Atmosphere:the best. Kip? A hoot! Made us feel so wecome!!!More

Dined today 3/17/24 will say that our Experience was outstanding from the beginning. Kip welcomed us and provided us with a short version of the history of the Cafe while we waited to be seated. He was friendly and funny. The seating arrangement was top...notch with a wonderful view. Food delicious and reasonable we had the coconut shrimp( best on the island) and conch fritters. I've visited Key West many times for over 20 years and I can surely and freely say they have the best Margarita on the island. Thank You all for a wonderful afternoonMore

This place is a must!!! From being greeted by Kip and seated on the waterfront, this place delivered. The lobster pizza was filled with big chunks of lobster....so scrumptious! And now let's talk about the hot honey lobster biscuits....OH MY WORD!!! Everything was outstanding.

We were the "southernmost" diners in the United States when we sat oceanside for our lunch here. Our server immediately made us feel welcome and offered some good tips for lunch. The conch fritters here are fantastic and not prepared like they are elsewhere on...Key West. DO NOT MISS the lobster pizza. It is fantastic. A full bar with fun cocktails rounds out this great dining spot located near the southernmost point of the United States.More

If you are looking for a different type of pizza, then the Seaside Cafe is for you. The lobster pizza was so good we ate there twice during our visit. The service was excellent, reasonably priced and it had a nice view of the beach.

Having read the reviews I decided that this restaurant had to be worth a shot, and that it had to be the lobster pizza followed by the Key Lime Pie. I had initially considered that $23 for a pizza, albeit a lobster one, was pushing...it a bit, but when I sat down at the restaurant and saw the menu, they’d hiked the price to $32 without updating their website. Hmmm! Anyhow, against my better judgement, I didn’t walk out. Verdict: Pizza was very good, though not exceptional, but way overpriced. Thankfully, the price of the Key Lime Pie had remained the same, and it tasted very good indeed.More

No celery or mustard. It's literally lobster and a nice light white creamy sauce.
