great atmosphere and terrific coffee. Employees were great! There is no seating bit benches all around and the little property around the counter service building is well kept.

If you want good food at very reasonable prices, this is for you. They are literally a small shack serving up breakfast & lunch. The portions are big so splitting an order may be an option for you. There is very little seating and you are at the mercy of the elements but Key West weather is usually good. Depending... More

Great little shack to order Cuban breakfast bagels or sandwiches. We go there every visit to get started in the morning and have some strong coffee. I like the bucci (strong shot of espresso) to get going and wake up after a late night . Love this place.

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.

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.
