My friends, family, and I could not get enough of their coffee! Just $1 for a Cuban coffee and it was delicious. A little out of the way, but they also have free delivery. The service was also very fast and friendly. You can't beat it!

I had the iced coffee and Cuban sandwich. The iced coffee has coffee ice cubes which is great! The Cuban is a great sandwich. The shipwreck sandwich is also great.

You're definitely pointing people in the right direction, Dominick -- you can't go wrong with The Cuban and an Iced Cafe Con Leche! Thanks from all of us for your fantastic 5-star recommendation. Until next time, Marius, Owner More

Locals and tourists can't beat Sunday morning breakfast sandwich delivery after a late night out in Key West. Delivery is worth it because you avoid waiting in the hot sun, and there is minimal seating at the actual walk-up location. I have never had a con leché delivered that wasn't hot and wrapped up tightly, and the sandwiches are fresh... More

Thanks so much for letting other reviewers know about our delivery services -- while we love to see friendly faces at our place, we're just as happy doing the leg-work and delivering fresh coffee and sandwiches to wherever you're staying! Be sure to give us a call the next time you're craving some Cuban. All the best, Marius, Owner More

The Cafe con Leche was good, but it didn't strike me as anything amazing. If you're looking for a reasonably priced coffee and you're in the area, then by all means stop by. But I wouldn't go out of your way for it.

I appreciate your honest feedback, Ryan, though I would've been interested to know how you thought that Cafe con Leche might have been improved -- we're always open to suggestions from our guests! As you'll see from our overall rating, we can do a lot better than a 3-star experience, and would love the chance to prove this to you... More

My wife and I have been going to key west for ten years and somehow missed the Cuban coffee queen. I made it a point to make it there during our last trip there last weekend.

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

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.

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).

You're right, Eric -- that's absolutely unacceptable, and far removed from the high standards we hold ourselves to.

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
