Great Cuban coffee and Sammy's

Great little place on e corner! We could tell it was going to be good! People were lined up for their coffee and breakfast Sammy's. Best Cuban bread as a bagel with some sweet honey on top. Never had one so tasty. Also got Sammy's for out boat trip. Awesome friendly happy staff!

Affordable snack bar in this very touristy and expensive area. Sandwich are great and the kids loved the little extra they put in the take away bag. Try the Caliente Cuban Mix... Delicioso !

Get my coffee here every weekend. One of the girls there Kelly makes the best cup of Cuban coffee in town. Would never think of going anywhere else to get my coffee. My dog Milo is always greeted with a treat.

I'm staying right around the corner from this little place and I am the luckiest girl in the world. Though we both be small, we are mighty and their food is mighty, mighty good and always fresh. And authentic what's more. So check 'em out and tip the wait staff, darn it. KW is pricey.

Very reasonable prices and generous servings. Be prepared to wait if... More

Yummy!! food I had the turkey Cuban sandwich. Wish they had different side options but the price was so good it doesn't even matter. My whole meal with drink cost less than 10 bucks. Its hard to find a good deal in Key West. You must go here at some point on your vacation.

This place just sucks the people there are rude and the food is cheap and nasty. I wouldn't advise visiting there if you come to key west.

My wife and I are down here for a "babymoon" (she's pregnant - last vacation without kid). We found this place by chance early one morning. You need to get here early or else it gets slammed. The girl who's taking orders is very personable, the breakfast sandwiches are excellent, and the coffee blew me away. So much so we... More

This coffee was SO good. There was a bit of a line, but I chalk that up to the laid back culture of Key West. The Cuban coffee is nice and strong and they use a lot of milk to provide that perfect combination.
