Quick, convenient, great food & Java!

My husband and I ate breakfast here every morning while vacationing in Key West. Great breakfast sandwiches and Cuban coffee! The location was convenient for us as we were staying at La Concha. The staff was friendly and service was timely.

It's made with milk and they add sugar to it for you. I asked for light sugar and it was perfectly sweet for... More

Better late than never, and we're so glad you made the walk down to see us towards the end of your trip. Sounds like we really knocked it out of the park for you, and that's exactly what we were aiming to do. You'll have to come back soon crave your Cafe con Leche addiction.
