Best food all week!!

The crab bisque was creamy and had actual lumps of crab, delicious. Blackened Mahi quesadillas were full of flavor and so good, the salsa/pico de gallo that came with it was awesome as well. Good service and GREAT prices and lots of food on each plate. A must stop for the keys! Best place in Key... read more

Staff was friendly and the atmosphere was nice inside. They also have the option of outside seating but it was too hot at lunch time. Food was good but not many vegetarian or gluten free options for those with allergies.

Great menu. Know a lot of people that love it and go back often. A good sign for locals to continue going. Ive been here a few times and have minor issues with a few items I've had. Who in their right mind covers up escargot with enough cheese to top a pizza? NO CHEESE. I was in France last... More

This really had the feel of a local restaurant/bar when I walked in. The food was good and a lot of it as I had to skip dessert. I would go here again for dinner

We didn't have huge expectations when we stumbled upon Hobos on our way down to Key West. That changed quickly. The staff were fun and attentive. We had a little of everything, burgers to fresh fish tacos all were excellent. Only regret was we didn't save room for the Key Lime pie which we later found out is a must.... More

Somewhat straAnge-looking on approach; I thought it was a church. But the food was awesome; nice atmosphere; good staff; no reason to rate this place any lower. First time with lobster and shrimp on the same po' boy; awesome!

The blackened Mahi Mahi quesadilla was our server Angie's recommendation and was absolutely delicious. With the key lime conch as an appetizer (also a recommendation from Angie and simply delicious), plenty for 2 of us for lunch. My husband had researched a lunch stop on our drive to Key West and I was all set for a burger. When I... More

Chanced upon this cafe going back to Miami and food was good and priced reasonably. We had the po'boy, fried fish, some Louisiana style shrimps and scallops and lime shrimp over pilaf rice. Spent $60 for 4 and that's a good price in the Key's for lunch.
