Amazing Food

This was probably the best meal we had while in Key West. The sandwiches were awesome and wasnt too over priced for the area (sandwiches are huge, 2 people can share). I recomend any of the sandwhiches and their festival corn.

"The Press" was fantastic, wish I was there longer to try more! Best meal we had in key west. Place is small and off the main tourist area. We parked in the structure next door when we visited key west for the day

Unpretencious restaurant. Had "the Press" and "caribbean bowl". You buy at the counter and then can eat at tables outside. Very tasty and generous portions. Had not had this type of food before but really enjoyed it. Friendly service. Definitely a great find and would thoroughly recommend.

Second time here. Seating is rustic (benches outside) but the food is fantastic. This time, I had prawn sandwich. Wife had chicken & rice with Caribbean spice. Also had roasted corn. Would recommend any of those.

I love the Caribbean Bowl w prawns is my favorite. On a 1 to 5 heat index I go for the 1.5. It is delicious w the chips to spoon up this mysterious concoctions. Check out the breakfast menu..... it's top notch as well. The guava cheese toast is also a fave.

I took the recommendation of others here on tripadvisor and I'm so glad we did! This was the best food we had in Key West! Our whole family loved it. We always try to eat local and this seems like a local place. I can't say enough how amazing the food was. I had rice and beans and pork. My... More

Food was delicious - great Latino/Caribbean flavors. Only potential drawback is that seating is limited. We ate a late lunch, though, and were able to get a bench in a covered area with a misting fan over it. Prices were super reasonable. Well worth it!
