Great Breakfast Omelet

Stopped here for breakfast on the recommendation of the Key West Meter Maid and we were not disappointed. Sat in the shade on the porch and had a great omelet made to order. Our waiter was attentive and the food delicious. Would do again when visiting Key West.

Our family rode into key west on bikes today. Walking into the restaurant I asked for ice tea and water please....as it was 88 degrees outside. Libby ignored us and waited 10 minutes to even speak to us. We got our meal order and she did not once refill tea or water. All of us noted that the 2 men... More

We got to the Hemingway Home for 9:00 - did the tour, and then had breakfast at this cafe next door. We sat outside, there is also plenty of inside seating. Service a little slow, but the breakfast was very good.

Our guest house sent us in this direction for 'the best key lime pie' on the island and they wasn't wrong. My wife and I first had a salad each, which was also delicious. Our server was excellent and friendly (sorry can't remember his name, but hails from Romania via Chicago). We'll definitely be back next time we visit the... More

We were looking for a place to grab lunch before heading to see Ernest Hemingway's home. We got right in and received great service and some of the best food in Florida. The lemonade was fresh squeezed and they even gave a free refill. I had the spicey shrimp wrap with frys. My husband had the reuben panini and French... More

We had a salad and it was very fresh and tasty. Easy to get to and nice outdoor seating as well as inside. The waiter was friendly and I would go back.

It took a while for someone to acknowledge us and I was worried about making our shuttle but they finally seated us and it was wonderful. I had the fish of the day sandwich and my husband had "the most unbelievable lobster BLT". He said you could not improve upon it.

We had brunch here in February 2015 after touring Hemmingway's house. Hands down, the BEST eggs Benedict I've ever eaten! EVER!! Everything looked delicious. 3 of the tables around us all got the French toast, so I'm assuming it was good too! You won't be disappointed eating here. Great outside seating and pet friendly too!
