I wished we went here first when it was cooler in the morning. We arrived around 10am and it was already pretty hot. There was about a 20 minute wait and I didn't know it was worth it. However, for a line that long for a small hut of a coffee shop, I knew the locals must know the place... More

I'm so glad you and your wife thought our coffee was well worth the wait! Thanks so much for taking the time to recommend us to other reviewers. Be sure to give our Cuban Sandwiches a try next time around -- I'd love to hear what you guys think of them! All the best, Marius, Owner More

Brought our family and our 20month old loved the cheese toast on Cuban bread. We own a coffee shop and this was the best we'd had on our vacation. Quick efficient service with little space.

It's made my day to know we won over a fellow coffee shop owner, Rachel! I'm so glad to hear we were a hit with your toddler, too -- we're proud to be a family-friendly spot here in Key West. Be sure to swing back by on your next Florida adventure! Until then, Marius, Owner More

This was one of my favorite places. Was there the week of July 11-18 2014. Have been then there many times before. Their food quality has not changed (if you can get it). I had a egg and cheese on Cuban bread before a dive and it was great. Here is the problem: Don't offer delivery if you can not... More

You're right, Eric -- that's absolutely unacceptable, and far removed from the high standards we hold ourselves to. You can bet I'll be checking in with my team immediately to find out what went wrong here. In the meantime, please accept my sincere apologies for the mix-up, and know that we're eager to make this up to you. Please reach... More

Food was excellent quality and reasonably priced! Service was efficient especially considering there was no room inside for the employees to move. Coffee was heavenly!

I actually came here twice during our stay. If you ONLY want a drink, you may get it in a reasonable amount of time and they are decent. If you want food, be prepared to wait and wait and wait some more. Actually, we inquired once as to where our order was, the lady rudely said they were busy, but... More

I'm truly sorry to hear about your experience with us, Melissa -- the last thing I want to hear is that you waited for an unacceptable amount of time, only to then leave empty-handed. That's far removed from the high standards of customer service we hold ourselves to. Thanks Marius, Owner More

Small, quaint and just right! Only reason not 5/5 is because we want them to go out on limb and open an air conditioned place where one can sit down and ponder the menu and order some of what appear to be mouthwatering options! Of course maybe it wouldn't be the same if they did that! Cuban coffee and Cuban... More

Good coffee, good food, great people. It's a "shack" with some benches and is worth its' weight in gold. I have gone both times I trekked to Key West and will return any time I go back to the island.

This was a place we visited twice. The coffee was the on Key West (not the decaf). Didn't get a chance to try the food.
