Quite a diverse menu...something for everyone.

The service was top notch, our waitress seemed to have the whole place to manage herself while several of the men who worked there seemed to just stand around chitchatting. Our waitress was kind and friendly and apologetic about being slow, but knowing we were on island time we weren't bothered... read more

The sale fixings are a colorful fresh mix and the meat flavor is so good! Nicely decorated diner with a clean and airy feel. Located in a strip mall with easy open parking in front.

This place was recommended by a local. It has Cuban, Italian, and Mediterranean food. We ordered a Greek salad and a chicken doner sandwich. Both were decent, but nothing to brag about. The staff, however, was very nice.

We walked over to the cafe from the Courtyard and double checked the address because it was so quiet. Once inside, the restaurant is bright and welcoming, with a large menu of Mediterranean foods. I enjoyed the kibbeh so much that I had to take my eggplant dish with me. We were pleased to find a menu that was not... More

If you love Greek or Vegetarian selections, you'll really enjoy this place. Big portions and they recently upgraded the interior! Took my mom and uncle while they were here for the Christmas break and they both really enjoyed it!! You can't go wrong. The outside looks a little questionable but this place is a hidden gem.

Average prices in Key West is a gem. The food even tastes good. We were there for breakfast, but open for lunch and supper also. Mediterranean and Cuban appears to be their specialities. The bread choices included a Cuban bread which appeared to me to be thinner French bread. The Cuban egg and cheese and bacon was okay. Would have... More

If you like something different go there and enjoy the second part of the menu! It is like visiting South of Russia or Georgia. Very good offerings of authentic dishes: meats, bar-b-Que and meet/cheese pies, we loved it! Do not leave without dessert too, Napoleon was like my mom made when I grew up in Russia... great service too.

A place chiefly for the locals....usually busy...friendly staff and reasonable prices...not your average diner though...seems to be family owned and operated

The Pizza, surprisingly, is great so we decided to try the sandwiches. I saw "French Dip" and got excited about the roast beef and French bread, dripping with "au jus" that I was going to get. WRONG! I The Kennedy Cafe has no clue what a French Dip is. The first sandwich came buried in some kind of cheese with... More
