There are two of these places in Key West and we visited the one near the marina for delicious cafe con leche and the other one downtown for lunch. If you like a delicious sandwich filled with pulled pork ,ham, pepper and salad just order the the caliente. Not too hot, but too much for one -so plan on sharing.... More

Came here most mornings to enjoy my new indulgence, Cuban Coffee, (Cafe con Leche) and watch the boats. This location is perfect for grabbing a delicious cup of coffee and sitting and enjoying the view. The workers are very friendly and make a great cup of joe.

A bit of a wait but so worth it. They have the best con leches on island and their sandwiches are awesome! Huge portions, fresh, and delicious. If you're on a budget, get the Sunrise Special breakfast for $4.25 small con leche' with half a breakfast sandwich.

Cuban Coffee Queen is outstanding! I like Starbucks, but if you want authentic Cuban coffee, this is one place you'll find it. They've got the lattes and espressos you're looking for. Two locations. There's a line, but it's worth the short wait.

Day two of the vacation, and day one had to go to Starbucks. Try this on day two and then does the best freaking coffee I have had since I left home and making my own! Great breakfast sandwiches to go with it for a fraction of the cost of other locations. Highly recommend!

I had a latte and my husband a mocha. Both were excellent with a lot of flavor. Sat on the benches and enjoyed the day.

Excellent coffee. Some of the best I have had. It became our morning ritual to go there for Carmel Con Leche each morning. Then we discovered the egg sandwich and added that to the ritual. Highly recommend it.

I didn't have a chance to come here earlier on the trip and there was no way I was leaving Key West without a stop here. Had the bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich and was in heaven. Couldn't finish it because it was so large and very reasonable. Service was quick and everyone was very friendly. CUban Coffee Queen is... More
