This is more food truck than restaurant. But we didn't mind. Some of the best café con leche I have ever had. Breakfast sandwiches on Cuban bread was so delicious. This was one of the best values, if not THE best value in Key West. After forking out more than seemed reasonable for dinner each night, it was great to... More

Finally made it here for a breakfast sandwich. Wait was about 15 minutes but the person in front of me order 8 sandwiches. I enjoyed the people watching as a lot of local characters were in line also. What can I say that hasn't been said? I love a good breakfast sandwich and this one the best I've ever had.... More

Starbucks who? I passed this little stand my second to last day in Key West. I've heard Cuban coffee is quite tasty so I was determined to give it a try. Oh man, that was a wise decision. I went with a cafe con leche and brother; it was out of this world! It's as if I tasted amazing coffee... More

I've had Cuban Mix sandwiches from at least 10 places in KW. This one is hands down the best. Others are bland, full of deli ham, and skimpy on portion size, but CCQ loads theirs up with a generous portion of Mojo pork, the sandwich is huge, and its grilled to perfection...I have at least one every week. Always friendly... More

Walked past this place tons of times and finally stopped. We will NEVER walk past it again without grabbing a cup of perfectly made Cuban coffee.

I have visited this place many times the past few years, and there is no better way to start your day in key west. I don't know which is better, the delivery staff and their tutu's, the cordita, or the Cuban bagel, but I will return.

We go here for Cuban coffee and ONLY here. The employees are fantastic and the service is fast. The food is great with portions you can share. Only place we found with a smoothie selection that is really good too.
