Delicious food, great service and reasonable prices. This place really felt like a "locals" joint, but they took great care of us and the food was fantastic. Very impressed. We returned the next morning for breakfast and had an equally great time.

Loved how intact they have kept the place. Food was amazing, pancakes were fluffy and delicious. One of the best key lime pies I have ever tried!

Wanted the full feeling of outdoor eating. Nothing fancy, but we didn't come for fancy. Stephanie was the only server since it was still the lunch menu till... More

That sounded great to us since we had enough seafood and burgers. It was not only good but a delightful change. There was turkey, gravy, potatoes, peas and the best cornbread... More

Pepe's is your pace. Al fresco dining in one of the oldest restaurants on the island. They know how to cook a filet, and there is something about eating in a small quaint restaurant with a century of history. Defintely a must stop location if you are eating your way through the island.

We went for dinner on a Thursday night which a local had told us they always serve Thanksgiving dinner. My daughter ordered the Thanksgiving dinner and it was excellent.

The restaurant had the old Key West flair. The menu had a variety of entrees - from sandwiches to full meals. Great atmosphere and friendly service.

This had a nice atmosphere! We ate inside because the outdoor space was full. Food was great, would definitely go back!

This is a no frills restaurant with a great staff and great food. We went to breakfast here practically every day while in Key West. They have a different homemade bread every morning and delicious unique specials. Highly recommend Pepe's Cafe.
