A Great spot for Breakfast

a perfect spot to grab a delicious sandwich and an excellent cup of Cuban coffee before starting your day in the Keys. Coffee is hot and fresh and the breakfast "special" chorizo sandwich is highly recommended . This little spot gets busy quickly so come early and grab a spot in the shade !

The best $5 dinner on the island! Two weeks in Key West, I wish I would have found this place sooner. Great food and, really, the best coffee on the island. Its a little bohemian but godd, good, good! Try the beans and rice with pork or the Cuban Club sandwich. you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.... More

There's nothing like a cuban coffee in the afternoon and this place will hit the spot with an unbelievably priced and Key-West-chill-style quadruple shot of espresso for $2. No kidding.

My boyfriend and I needed a quick breakfast and stumbled upon this little hidden gem. The iced coffee was AMAZING! Coffee ice cubes and all! Make sure to get the "Cuban bagel": Cuban bread with cream cheese, toasted and topped with honey and everything bagel topping. I have never had anything so tasty! We will definitely try to replicate this... More

We joined the line to order breakfast one late morning. They have a special that is coffee and half a sandwich, which was plenty for me. The wait in the hot sun is difficult, but the chickens wandering nearby are entertaining. We were rewarded with strong, hot, great coffee and a delicious crusty bread stuffed with chorizo, egg, cheese. I... More

The reviews do NOT lie about this place. Wonderful coffee, if you do not like strong Cuban coffee then you should get something on the lighter/sweeter side. I loved the fact that the ice cubes in their iced cafe con leche were coffee ice cubes!! When you walk up to the window to order the delicious smell of the roast... More

The first couple times I vacationed in Key West, I didn't know the magic that is Cuban Coffee Queen. The last time I was there - I had struck gold. This place has the best coffee on the island. Their sandwiches are also to die for. It's a cute stand (they have a couple locations) with not much seating, but... More
