Great breakfast. Mango smoothie is decent but if I would have read the menu a little better, I would have opted for a berry instead. Loved the breakfast sandwich, & colada. Atmosphere was awesome because of the chickens! Fun place & free delivery...

The coffee was so good earlier in the week, we stopped at 7am as we were leaving the island to go home. I happened to order the Cuban Bagel....WOW, it was amazing. A toasted bun with cream cheese in the middle and honey spread on top and then dipped in everything bagel mix. The flavor combination is yummy. Make this... More

Good food! Excellent coffee! Very quick grab and go. Cute little shops to look in while you wait for food. When you are done, grab the train and take a tour.

Last morning, drove to the harbour to buy some souvenirs. Most cafes were packed that were good, found this trailer by the car park. They have a website and are on facebook so you can find them. Amazing menu, quality of food for a trailer. Drinks and food were lovely and amazing value. Had coffees and wraps for breakfast. Love... More

Hidden behind the harbor restaurants, this place dishes up awesome egg sandwiches on Cuban bread, great smoothies. The coffee is like nothing I have ever tasted. Even our 10 year old loved it. Can't wait to go back for lunch. No frills, not a sit down place. Excellent choice for grab and go before heading out on a charter.

I LOVE this place. I don't drink any caffeine, but I had one of their Cuban coffees...an espresso shot in experience, but SO much better. Had the pork/rice/beans and it was great. I still think about it and when we return in August this is the first thing I'll get. Being from Cali, we don't have much option in the... More

Strong coffee and big tasty sandwiches. We stopped here almost every day for a morning or afternoon coffee. The postcard mural on the back is a great place for a touristy picture. Will definitely be back during our next visit to Key West.

I am A local, and just called them to see if they offered a Cuban steak sandwich, which is very popular here in Key West, Well who ever the guy was that answered the phone just said no and hung up on me, He didn't even wait to see if maybe by chance I might have wanted something else. So... More

I'm very surprised to hear this and want to apologize if you were made to feel like anything less than a valued customer. This is not an accurate reflection of our service, our attitude or our business in general. You can bet that I'll be speaking with my staff about this ASAP. I do hope you'll give us another chance.... More

This is really a walk-up counter, not to be confused with a restaurant. We stopped by for breakfast. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the Cuban coffee. I am not a coffee lover, so I tried to order their tea specialty that was listed on the board, Sadly they said they did not serve it anymore, so I had to settle for... More

While it's wonderful you're a fan of our egg sandwiches, I'm sorry you thought the atmosphere was lacking. We're definitely a no-frills establishment, so our style is grab-and-go food. We're right next to the water, so we feel that the scenery is perfect for a bite and stroll. I apologize if you were thrown off by this. I do hope... More

Cute walk up style coffee shop. Love the post card painting on the building. As well as the painted soft drink options - that required some talent! If you drive here parking is metered in this area. We had the iced (Cuban) coffee and a regular Cuban coffee along with the egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. The coffees were the... More
