The Cuban coffee & the breakfast sandwich were great. The friendly nearby chickens were problematic. Cuban Coffee Queen says they are not their chickens. Even so when one pretty much stole my boyfriend's breakfast, the Queen gave him another. Was a nice gesture on their part & much appreciated. Don't let the chickens stop you. The coffee is awesome !

Tried this place for the first time last year. Been dreaming about their Cuban coffee (and I'm not a coffee drinker) and mojo pork with rice dish ever since. Ate there and it was better then I had been dreaming about all year. Cuban coffee was sweetened just right and such a flavorful taste. The mojo park is off the... More

We ordered sandwiches, Cuban rice & beans. Very good food and great prices. Quick service too. No place to sit except a few benches outside. If you don't like the key west heat, try take out.

They have a great cuban mix, rivals most in town. I don't drink coffee but friends tell me their coffee is tasty as well. Definitely recommend.

So glad you gave our place a try -- even if you skipped the coffee, Kathleen! We've spent a long time perfecting that Cuban Mix, so your kind words mean a lot. Already looking forward to your next visit! Cheers, Marius, Owner More

After hearing so many good reviews from friends visiting Key West I had to stop on my way out. I live in Palm Beach County and don't even bother getting coladas here most of the time, as it seems like the only place to get great ones is in Miami. I was pleasantly surprised with Cuban Coffee Queen! Colada was... More

Just a little walk up stand near Caroline. Looks like a shack but serves the best coffee. Walked there every morning for a cafe con leche. THE BEST!

My husband and I visited this place in 2011. We came back August 2014 only to find out what we already knew, still great amazing taste. Best Cuban sandwiches around! I ordered a portion of rice and beans with pork and the smell just makes you want to dive right in..can't wait to come back.

Knowing that we lived up to your wonderful 2011 memories has really made me smile, Rosemary! I'm so glad you gave our Havana Rice & Beans a try, too -- it's a dish that's often overshadowed by our Cuban Sandwiches, but it's a real hidden gem, if you ask me. We can't wait to see you again next time --... More

This is a small shack serving great hot and cold coffee (try the iced coffee with coffee ice-cubes). The breakfast sandwiches we had with Cuban bread were fantastic. Food was good all day.

Drove over to this wonderful "tiki shack/hut" based on reviews I've read. I was not dissappointed. This was my first time having a cuban sandwich and I am afraid to try somewhere else, because this bar has been set real High. My husband had the Tuna Melt and he says it was really AWESOME!
