This little shack makes a great Cuban coffee - café con leche; definitely worth the trip & wait. Not a lot of seating outside but if you're lucky you can score a seat on a bench outside. Highly recommend the Cuban Queen Mix (Cuban sandwich) - mojo pork, turkey, ham, cheese, bacon, lettuce, onion, tomato, mayo & mustard on toasted... More

The new downtown location of Cuban Coffee Queen became an everyday stop for us during our stay in Key West.

Best cafe con leche. I always get breakfast special of 12 oz cafe con leche & half Key Wester breakfast sandwich (egg, cheese, choice of meat on fresh Cuban bread) all for under $5. You can even call ahead and place your order.
