Quirky looking but stay for the food

Quirky looking place off the beaten path but definitely stay for the food. Came here once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both times amazing food. Everything is fresh and homemade. Definitely a must try even if you're only here for a few days.

The place from the outside looks like its over a hundred years old, guess what it is. The place is not fancy but it has charm. We have been here for breakfast and dinner every time we visit key west. The are usually crowded but the food is worth the wait. Dinner and drinks for 2 costs 45 to 55... More

Food was average and somewhat overpriced. Waitstaff appeared disinterested to say the least. Bartender was very good however and attentive. Overall would not recommend.

I would like to give Pepe's a 4.5, but I'll round up.... I LOVE the breakfast here. It has such a cool vibe to the place, they alway have a fresh bread of the day that is always just incredible. There is always a wait, for good reason, the food is worth it. Why a 4.5? I love the fact... More

Went to Pepe's for breakfast and dinner during our last stay in Key West. Food was excellent and breakfast omelette was VERY good - OJ really was fresh squeezed. We managed to get there at the right times and didn't have to wait for a table. Always go there at least once to eat every time we are in Key... More

First thing first the people are rude. The owner I assume was a older man..he was the only polite person there....no one had a smile. The food was very expensive especially for breakfast. Bacon cheese omelet cost $13? With only a bread? Whole in the wall small location with...downtown prices. Before I go I need to say the place being... More

We stumbled upon Pepe's Cafe last year and made a point to go back this year! The food is excellent as are the drinks. We ended up eating dinner at the bar, but the bartender did an excellent job of keeping all orders straight while still tending to the rest of the bar patrons. She was excellent (and I did... More

We went to Pepe's this past February after not visiting the keys for close to 8 years or so. We had always just had breakfast at Pepe's and every time it was always phenomenal. Since we just did a day trip to key west this year from Tavernier, we stopped at Pepe's for lunch. My wife and I had the... More
