If you like coffee, go to the Cuban Coffee Queen! We stopped here a few times and we always got the "Bucci", which is a Cuban Espresso shot. It hit the spot every time!!!

In honestly, I never set foot in this new location on this trip! My husband would get up every morning and go pick up coffee and breakfast and bring it back. He said it was a great spot and nice addition. We absolutely LOVE the coffee and breakfast sandwiches. My daughter loves the smoothies too. Highly recommend for something delicious... More

One day we wanted to try Cuban coffee so popped in mid afternoon. Coffee was OK, but served in a tiny plastic cup which you would get typically if you had a salad with dressing on the side. Even so the coffee was good. Couple days later we wanted a quick lunch and had Cuban sandwiches and more Cuban coffee.....doubles.... More

Nice coffee stand for excellent variants of Cuban coffee and cuisine. Local favorite. Outside standing or seating. It was fun all the same.

I went back to Cuban Coffee Queen and this time I was able to try a few of the sandwiches. The coffee was great again, but I can't say the same about 2 of the sandwiches. The bread for the 2 sandwiches was very very dry and flaky. We got the Key Wester and the one with the guava. I... More

I appreciate you coming back to try more! Though I'm glad our coffee was a hit, I'm a little disappointed our sandwiches didn't knock it out of the park as well. We pride ourselves on fresh ingredients, and I'm sorry if the bread we provided wasn't to your liking. That being said, I'm happy our bagel was a standout. Thanks... More

There was quite a long line when we arrived, but it was worth the 10-15 minute wait! We got our coffee before leaving the window, and it was AMAZING! They use frozen coffee cubes instead of ice in the cold drinks, so no worries about your drink getting watered down. The breakfast sandwich was delicious and so filling, and I... More

We just got into town, checking into the hotel when the staff's lunch was just being delivered. Since we were hungry we asked where their lunch was from, and they said Cuban Coffee Queen at Key Lime Square. So, off we went and had a great lunch. We split a Cuban sandwich (they're very large). I had the best iced... More
