Great Break for Food on the Overseas Highway

We were making our way down to Key West and wanted a quick place to stop and eat. One of our group will not eat fast food. So I turned to TripAdvisor to find the Hobo Cafe. Rather reluctant at first as we pulled in as the outside was very vanilla, we ultimately went in for food. Service was... read more

Best blackened Mahi I've ever had, anywhere. Polite, fast service, but get there early as it fills up like other Key Largo sites. There's a reason it's popular.

Fish sandwich on a great bun. Outside seating away from HWY 1 was a bonus. Promt service. Waitress was very helpful on several options and changes.

We have eaten here twice in the last week. The staff is very pleasant and service could not be better. There is both inside and outside dining, we chose outside. Prices are very reasonable. The lobster bisque should be tried. It is very favorable but much thicker in consistency then you might expect. I liked it. The salad entrees are... More

Would recommend the pan fried snapper with this incredible brown butter sauce. The wedge salad was very good but one must have the wings naked but have the 5 sauces on the side .... Very enjoyable

Had clam chowder, best since Boston, and stuffed shrimp. Amazing prep and flavor. Certainly didn't expect that for low prices.

This place is an understated gem!! My daughter frequents this place on her trips to the keys. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the price was very reasonable. Lobster bisque, ahi salad, sampler plate, mahi mahi perfectly cooked...can't go wrong. And the key lime pie was over the top. What a great place. The staff worked well... More
