Disappointing experience overall. We went for lunch after visiting the Hemingway House. It was early afternoon and they were already out of the "fish of the day" special. We selected something else. Had to eat with one hand and shoo the flies away with the other. Not fun. It took forever to get the food. Also took forever to get... More

Great breakfast Eggs benedict with key lime hollandaise sauce. Yum. Great service, food and atmosphere. Generous portions. You can dine inside or out.

We went here for breakfast. Raspberry pancakes were good. The peach belini was even better! Hubby had a mimosa and it was also good. Would return here.

I have been visiting Key West for 11 years. Each time I visit I try to go to new places to see if there may be something I'm missing. This year I tried the Six Toed cat and found it to be average for the area. A little pricey ...but being next to the Hemingway house I expected that. The... More

I came here the first time on a solo trip to the Keys, and was not disappointed. The food was great! The second time I brought family with to try it. I had the lobster Reuben, my dad tried the lobster club, and my mom had the lobster eggs Benedict. Don't forget to save room for key lime pie!

What part of that doesn't sound good? It's across the street from the Hemingway House (which you should also do). Great, friendly service. Outside or inside dining (always choose outside). Stuffed French toast is also very good, as is the coffee.

We had a wonderful lunch at this restaurant which is directly across the street of the Hemingway House, home of 50 six-toed cats. I suggest the shrimp sanwich. It is loaded with key west pink shrimp and served on Italian bread. Then head next door for a tour of the Hemingway House and meet and greet the six-toed residents. The... More

This is a cute little cafe near Hemingway's House with decent food and service. Outside has a bit more atmosphere than the rather plain inside. Small shop at the front caters to tourists. Very good Key Lime Pie.

A simple breakfast cafe. Nothing super outrageous but my breakfast was really good; sourdough sandwich with bacon egg and cheese with fresh berries as a side. We sat at the bay window which is nice for people watching in the AC :)
