We serve up delicious Cuban coffee, breakfast, and lunch fare to a large following of fans here in Key West. Come in the morning for Café con Leche or a Cuban Chocolate Mocha, and make sure to grab some breakfast too. Try favorites such as our Key Wester, which is two eggs, cheese, and your choice of ham, bacon, sausage, or pork roll sandwiched between two delicious pieces of pressed Cuban bread. It’s fantastic!Are you ready for lunch? Try our Famous Tuna Burger, our Turkey Club, or the Havana Rice & Beans. If you want to go lighter, order one of our freshly made salads or one of our delicious smoothies made with sweet tropical fruits.We also deliver! Cuban Coffee Queen is open every day, from 6:30 until sunset. Don’t forget to grab a T-shirt or hat while you’re at Cuban Coffee Queen.

Needed my café con leche and saw this place was rated #1. It's a small stand at the marina with lines of people waiting for their coffee and smoothies. I stuck my head inside the window and could smell the delicious Cuban cooking! My friends and I ordered Café con Leche iced because it was... read more

I am not ashamed to admit that my boyfriend and I ate at Cuban Coffee Queen every morning we were in Key West. Yes, it was conveniently located steps from our hotel, but let's be honest, we would have trekked across the island to get to another one of their delicious Key Westers. The staff rotated each day we went... More

Had a quick breakfast here before going snorkeling. The sandwiches are great as is the coffee! There are a few benches around to eat or you can take your food and eat at the waterfront.

It's like a hole in the wall, there is no really like a proper table...just a couple of long chairs that could accommodate 3 persons... After u order the Cuban coffee & there scrumptious salad & exotic sandwiches,then you will realize...life is really good, what else can u ask for...the good feeling will be a memory to be cherish.

First let me say that it is always busy and there are a lot of people waiting around the window, check to see who has already ordered because there isn't any rhyme or reason as to how people decide to line themselves up and you may end up waiting needlessly if everyone has already ordered. Calling ahead is never a... More

The Cuban Coffee Queen was an absolute must for us during our first visit to Key West. The line was 10 or so people long and they moved them fast. The service was great. The coffee and food was pretty good to considering the small operation.

I had the Cortadito (doppio espresso with cane sugar and hot milk) and bought a t-shirt. A nice strong, well made coffee with great flavour served by a young, enthusiastic and entertaining team all wearing tutus (yes, including the men). Will be back tomorrow at least once!

This place apparently has rave reviews and people sent us there - it's just okay. The coffee is okay and the food is okay. If you've had good cuban sandwiches and good cafe con leche - this place will not impress you. If you're walking by and starving, it's okay though. If you can wait and eat somewhere else, just...

Came all the way to Key West because of people staying in the condo unit I was in were talking about this place! So I took the family down to Key West for a day trip and it was well worth the trip. I had the Cuban combo, it was loaded with meat and sauce, washed it down with a... More

That is some serious dedication, and we kind of love it! Road trips with the family can be stressful, but I am so glad to hear your Cuban combo and BLTs made the trip worth it. If you're thinking about joining us for breakfast, may I recommend my personal favorite, the Cuban bagel? It's out of this world! Hope to... More
