We tried two cupcakes from Kew West Cakes. The Key Lime cupcake was out of this world! I could have easily eaten more! The cupcake was deliciously sweet and refreshing at the same time! I also had a red velvet cupcake. It was good, but not great.

Wanted a little something for dessert, so we picked up a Red Velvet and a Key Lime Cupcake and they were fantastic. Easy to get too and a great way to end the day.

Dashed in during an intense thunderstorm, and inside it was sunny! We were as excited as our children about all the colourful cupcakes under their own little domes, jars of delicious flower and starfish shaped biscuits, and we had a great coffee whilst chatting with the very friendly staff and watching some great creations being made. Lovely.

Found this place here on TripAdvisor. Their cupcakes were phenomenal! We probably could have shared one, they're massive. But the taste: was like diving into a milk chocolate pool, and then sunbathing on a chocolate sponge lilo! Best cupcake I've ever had in the States. Bar none. We went back for seconds, but they close on Sundays so we couldn't... More

We did tastings at a couple different bakeries in Key West, but we were completely "wowed" by Key West Cakes. From the moment we walked into the store and were engulfed by the aroma, to our onsite tasting (they provided all of the different flavor combinations for us to try, and even suggested that we try a cupcake when we...

Both my wife and I are "dessert people" with cake being our weakness. Key West Cakes did not disappoint. We stopped in and got 6 different cupcakes for us and our grandkids. They were all fantastic! Definetly will be back on our next trip.

I had previously ordered cupcakes for my wedding in 2010 from Key West Cakes and every tropical flavor we had was yummy. My guest really enjoyed them as well. So my husband and I decided to stop in the shop during our latest visit. I picked the cannoli cupcake and the peach cupcake. They were massive and so delish!!! Can't... More

We found Key West Cakes on our last visit. I love the huge cupcakes with the frosting in the center. We had to get a birthday cupcake for my sister to take to the beach. Everyone is so friendly at the store. They even gave us a candle to put on top. It was hard to choose because they have... More

The key lime flavored ice cream is tart and flavorful and not too sweet. It could have been creamer. The shop has some simple gift options, too.

Thank you for the review, but I think you have the wrong business, as we don't sell ice cream. More
