This is our third year in Key West for the Holidays. We LOVED going to the Café for the BEST breakfast on the Island, used to be anyway, not anymore. They changed the menu and I also left hungry. sad. Also don't believe the LIES about reservations. You can make one, then show up and they will tell you that... More

Nice view, relaxing, atmosphere is great. Food is good, but not the main reason to come here. As part of the hotels around it, it's great to go to breakfast etc. The pancakes are really good. The chicken/waffle so-so.

After walking down Duval, we decided to stop in and enjoy a lite lunch and a few drinks. Seated very quickly, and beverages brought out just as fast. We had an order of nachos which where excellent.

This was our 3rd year staying at Southernmost and dining at the café. The first two years were beyond excellent. This year the menu was very limited and the new ownership has really changed the café for the worse. Very disappointed.

Nice place to people watch and have a good meal. I had Caprese of fresh mozzarella, charred Campari tomatoes, basil and arugula salad with a balsamic drizzle. My boyfriend had a BBQ Pork Sandwich of shredded pork, coleslaw, tropical mango bbq sauce, brioche bun. Tropical drinks of Bahama Mama accompanied the meal. Will return again.

The restaurant is located on the beach. It is a great location & fun atmosphere. I had the mahi mahi sandwich and my husband had the grilled cheese. Both were delicious and well priced! We ordered draft beers(prices were not listed) we though okay $3 bucks most? No $6 for a draft bud light! Ridic. If we ever go back,... More

One night during a week in Key West we decided to walk from our condo to the Southernmost Beach Café. Checked it out on tripadvisor. We had a great time. It was not crowded prompt seating. A bit of a chilly December wind and our hostess quickly put down the wind screen and made sure we and others in the... More

My wife and I took a stroll down Duval St and dropped in for a drink and dinner. Sat at the bar which looks directly out at the Atlantic Ocean. Great place to sit. Bartender was good and the food was all prepared to order and good. Highly recommend for atmosphere and a great key West beach feel. We like!
