Don't Overlook this Gem

Don't miss out on this diner! We have visited the Six Toed Cat twice. Our first visit was in April 2014. We had such a great dining experience, we decided to stop in again on our Key West vacation this July. Indoor and outdoor dining are available. We have now tried both. Either way, you... read more

My husbands favorite breakfast. He had the fried lobster BLT and it was out of this world good. My sister had the non fried version and loved it. I had the shrimp sandwhich which wasn't amazing but wasn't bad. Try the OJ it's freshly made no added sugar bur a bit pricey at 4.50 a glass.

To be honest - I'm surprised how good this was. I have to admit that I was skeptical that a place right next to the Hemingway House would be so good. With that location, I was expecting a tourist trap. Happily, I was wrong. We were hungry and hot leaving the Hemingway House, and this is right next door. They... More

The Six Toed Cat has excellent food and service. The cafe is adorable and has a cute gift shop. Highly recommend if you are going to the Hemmingway House. It is right next door and perfect for breakfast or lunch.

Conveniently located a couple blocks down from Hemmingway's Estate, is a clean little restaurant that we enjoyed after our estate visit. Good food, reasonably priced, clean environment.

We liked the food here so much we ate here a few times. Small menu, but everything is great! You'll find something you like here! Try it once ... thank me later!

Homemade, fresh, and easy to find. What more can you ask for. The sandwiches are made to order with fresh ingredients. The lettuce and spinach look like they were picked right from the garden, washed, and served in the salads. The fresh squeezed lemonade is fantastic. If there's a wait, it's worth the wait. We give it a six thumbs... More

Went in and was ignored for 5 mins by male employee even though place was not full, when we asked for sodas for children he simply gestured to cabinet in shop. Undismayed, we ordered coffee. 5 mins afterwards we saw a hippyish couple come in, the mans shirt was just over his shoulders, bare chested otherwise, sit down, and when... More

I wish I had asked the very friendly proprietress about what beans they use, because that was the best coffee I have had on my whole 19-day US trip! Cool little café next to Hemingway's house. Pancakes were ordinary but good and just what I needed! The smile too!
