Come in the morning for Café con Leche or a Cuban Chocolate Mocha, and make sure to grab some breakfast too.

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!

Coffee lovers dream!

I tried having their coffee the first time I stopped by, but power was out. I came back the next day and had to have 2!!! My cup ran empty walking by the water, so of course I had to go back. I love a strong coffee and usually black, but I got a Cortadito. It is a double Cuban... read more

Straight up, no pretense here . Just great ethnic food. Coffee is # 1 as is the Cuban sandwich. Thank you for keeping things straight. Chef REL

Not certain why this is rated so highly. Definitely cheaper than Starbucks but nothing specials. Located on the bite near the turtle Crawls.

My husband is still talking about this place, it was his absolute favorite spot during our week in Key West. While I am not a fan of Cuban sandwiches, he said they were by far the best that he has ever tasted. We tried several other Cuban places on the island, including Sandy's Cafe and El Maison de Pepe, but... More

This is your typical Key West find. Not much for the decor but just plain good coffee and breakfast in your hand! Iam not a coffee lover but my wife is an aficionado of the morning Joe. It does not matter how long the line is or where we are staying, we ARE making the trip to the Cuban Coffee... More

Stopped by twice to get coffee this time! Always the best taste, and bring your own cup to fill and get a discount! We have tried everything on the menu at least twice now and never have had a bad item. Very nice staff and will give you some tips about the island if you ask.

This is our waterfront coffee place on Sundays when we're in KW. Con Leche without sugar... and our day gets a great jump start. The coffee is a rich Cubano blend. The service is KW friendly. The food menu looks very tempting if you're there to eat.

If you like coffee you will not be disappointed. Even my bf who is not a coffee drinker loved it! I wish we had a place like this by us

Excellent coffee and food Worth the walk Near the harbor walk too. There's usually a long line, be patient and you'll be rewarded.

I'm so happy to hear that our coffee and food really hit the spot for you! I know our line can get a bit hectic during the morning and lunch rushes, so I really appreciate your patience. I couldn't be happier to read that you thought it was all worth the wait. :) Cheers, Marius, Owner More
