good lunch locale

A must try is the grilled eggplant with feta, it is delicious. Cannot comment much on other menu items b/c I always order the grilled eggplant.

Just happened to see this place tucked into a little strip mall one morning as I was walking from our hotel (Courtyard by Marriott Key West) over to the K-Mart to get some shorts. There were a lot of people coming and going, so I asked one couple if it was a good place to eat. They responded YES with... More

This place has something for everyone. Greek, Turkish and Uzbek cuisine with unique flavors that will satisfy your craving for an exotic and affordable dining experience. The service is very friendly and the food was good and plentiful. I tried the Gyro Platter and another time the Falafel Wrap. I would go there again and again.

Welcoming atmosphere and amazingly pleasant service. Food was amazing! I had the Uzbek omelet with fresh baked Uzbek bread and the yogurt sauce and it was delicious and fairly priced. Recommend to anyone who likes Mediterranean cuisine.

Don't be fooled, just because locals go somewhere doesn't mean it is good, just means we have few choices for affordable good quality food.I will skip the food entirely because last time we were here we were totally disgusted by the filth. One of the worst bathrooms we have seen outside developing countries. There was no soap in the Men's... More

We Lived in Kyrgyzstan for about three years and appreciate Kyrgyz and Uzbec cuisine, but the Italian and Turkish offerings at Kennedy Cafe are equally as good. Come hungry but no need to worry about burning the credit card, prices are very reasonable. Like a lot of places where the locals go, atmosphere is secondary to good food and fair... More

Had been there for lunch many times but decided to try dinner... WOW! I literally ate myself into a stupor and had to take half of my entree home! Somsa is OUTSTANDING! The lamb is delicate and flavorful. Uzbek Pilaf a masterpiece of blended flavors... The Pasta with Sausage and Meatball was also wonderful! Now I need to try breakfast... More

The inside looks like an average Eastern EuropeAn cafe, the pretty Blonde Latvian waitress was very nice and attentive, she explained the food and was patient an attentive. We ordered Uzbek Pilaf and Lula Kebab. When the food... More

Possibly the best eastern European dining in Key West. Wonderful, authentic dishes and really good service.

Stopped in today while our car was at the dealership getting an oil change. We found the place to have a good average breakfast. The prices are good for key west. I had an omelette and my wife had pan cakes. Both were good. No complaints. Service was a little slow. We were there for over an hour. This place... More
