I had a similar experience to the previous reviewer....owner was unfriendly and asked me to move on even though I spent at a minimum of $18 bucks on various coffee and breakfast food and the place wasn't full. The problem is basically layout of the shop-- a portion of it is an office for his Realtor business and living room... More

I was in Key West juggling my day job as a consultant with participation in a literary workshop. The workshop ran from 10-1 every day. In the afternoon, I was on the hunt for a place to get a little work done so I could meet my commitments. I was very pleased to find Coffee Plantation on my first visit.... More

The owners Diane and Theo paint pictures of key west. There are many originals available for purchase, and this is some of the best art I've seen in ages for a very affordable price. Very unique, original and high end. I hope they don't read this and then increase the price because it is so nice to come across people... More

Great little spot; a hidden gem. Coffee is much better than Starbucks (and I like Starbucks) and the light snack selection is better. Cosy and relaxed, try having your coffee on the terrace watching the world go by. Recommended.

The service can be quite slow and only the small, dark haired lady is pleasant when serving you. The owner can be surly and ignore his customers and the younger girl never manages a smile. The food is fine but on the pricey side. Last time we went the toilet was out of order and not even an "I'm sorry"

I stopped here for morning tea and a quick bite to eat. the food case is small, but has a decent selection of muffin/breakfast breads to choose from. Instead of typical muffins you get a small loaf-shaped piece. It amounts to a slightly larger than normal amount of food. It was fresh and a little unique. They had a coffee... More

Nice local coffee in a small updated house. Went several times. The coffee is excellent, and the muffins are terrific. Also have fruit available for those pretending to be eating healthy on vacation.

This was a really nice looking place and I was ready for my cappuccino! However, my high exceptations were ruined with the plastic cups, plates and plasticware. These were not in line with the interior of the cafe, and the price. To me cappuccino from a plastic cup is an insult.

The coffee at this independent coffee house is fantastic; however the service is somewhat unfriendly / rude. A 5 star TA review is only a smile away.

It is very rare that I will vow to never return, but in the case of this coffee shop, I won't be back. It's an adorable little place but the staff made me feel so unwelcome. Stick with coconuts coffee (next to peppers off duval). They actually appreciate you and your business. The decor feels homey, but this does not... More
