Shrimp & Grits... nuf said

Truly a unique experience dining at the eclectic Blue Haven. A beautiful way to start the day. Open and shaded outdoor dining area amongst the chicken and some of the best darn shrimp & grits I have ever had... what more could you ask for? Maybe the lobster omelet that my hubby chowed down... read more

Our first experience at Blue Heaven was about 6 years ago. Once you find it and make your way back to the outdoor eating area, bar, and entertainment area, you'll want to spend each meal here. We visited Key West again a few weeks ago and nothing has changed. The food and atmosphere is amazing.. well worth the wait. We've... More

Blue Heaven never disappoints at breakfast. Everytime we have guests they always ask to go to Blue Heaven for breakfast. Richard's very good pancakes and the shrimp/lobster benedicts cannot be beat. And service is always very good as well.

This is one of the places we take all of our visitors for breakfast. This is a quintessential Key West restaurant. It's an old building and courtyard in Bahamas Village. Most of the dining is in the courtyard with lots of trees, chickens and wood chips under your feet. Upstairs is an old bordello which reminds you of the salty... More

This is one of the best attractions in Key West. It is a great example of what Key West is and what it has to offer. The food is excellent, the service great, and the environment/atmosphere is wonderful. Yes, there are chickens running around. And yes, you eat outside and it can be hot. But that is Key West.

Breakfast at Blue Heaven is one of our stops each time we visit Key West. A unique Caribbean outdoor setting and moderately-priced good food. Don't miss this Key west landmark.
