Went to both locations and both where great. Love the Cuban bagel. This was our regular morning walk for coffee and bagel.

Stopped here while visiting friends in key west. Heard great things because they get the coffee delivered to their office- which sounds amazing to me. Tried an iced con Leche and thought it was great. Even ordered a bag of whole bean espresso to take home. We are coffee snobs!! I would definitely recommend everyone stops here. Great gift shop...

We stumbled upon this little café and fell in love! The Cuban coffee - café con leche - is so smooth...and the vanilla flavored coffee is amazing. A must for all who travel to Key West! You won't spend a fortune on breakfast, will get amazing coffee AND food and will leave as happy as we did - guaranteed!

We visited Key West over Thanksgiving and found this great little gem to get an inexpensive (but great breakfast) and coffees to go. It's right by the water, so we could get our drinks and claim our favorite bench and watch the world go by. In a world of chain store coffee- it's a breath of fresh air. The gal... More

This is a great place to swing by for a quick bite. The Cuban queen mix sandwich on the Cuban bread is absolutely delicious! Great place for Cuban coffee too :)

This place is dope. Totally lives up to its reputation. The barista from Colombia was extremely pleasant to talk to. Her husband is from Cuba, so I guess the coffee must be authentic. The nice people and fine coffee brought me back to the best time of my life in Cuba. They really did. I wish I could figure out... More

We love eating outside on a bench and watching the people....and roosters...walk by. It is a very busy place and gets crowded at mealtimes. There is no indoor seating so some order lunch and eat it elsewhere. Today I went "American" and had a grilled cheese, tomato and tuna sandwich. My husband went the Cuban route and had a breakfast...

It's fantastic that you and your husband both enjoyed your sandwiches, Gail. Don't those coffee ice cubes really add that extra pop to the drinks? Glad you enjoyed! Until next time, Marius, Owner More

We serve up delicious Cuban coffee, breakfast, and lunch fare to a large following of fans here in Key West.

Try favorites such as our Key Wester, which is two eggs, cheese, and your choice of ham, bacon, sausage, or pork roll sandwiched between two delicious pieces of pressed Cuban bread. It’s fantastic!Are you ready for lunch? Try our Famous Tuna Burger, our Turkey Club, or the Havana Rice & Beans.
