Good late night stop

Cute little place to eat or grab a drink. Good food and reasonable prices located in the middle of everything.

We visited Key West as part of our cruise. While taking a tour, Pepe's was recommended as a great place for breakfast. Following the tour, we rented some moped's and headed back to Pepe's. Although there was a long wait, the cafe and staff were superb. It is a quaint cafe with a number of outdoor and indoor seating areas.... More

We've been to Key West many times and not sure how we'd never tried this place until recently. It's a small restaurant but the food is amazing. We had lobster and steak, both dishes did not disappoint. We can see why this place has been around for such a long time.

Seriously a staple in my itinerary! Great bloody Mary's and friendly service! Home baked breads are out of this world! I never even open the menu just order the specials and you can't go wrong!

Between three visits, we've had three meals here, which were all great; one dinner and two breakfasts. The last two visits to Key West we've had breakfast at Pepe's before we leave Key West. It's a very nice restaurant, just out of all the craziness of Duval Street, where we relaxed and enjoyed delicious food while reflecting on the great... More

You'd perhaps walk right by as looks small and is off the beaten path. The food, however, is some of the best and very reasonably priced.

Had dinner here our first night in Key West as this was recommended by friends who travel here often. It was enjoyable. Very local feel and layout. Nothing fancy, a little sticker shock our first night, but we were warned nothing in key west is cheap. We enjoyed our meal and the service was good! Great Key Lime pie!

My family of four, wife and two 14 year olds loved the food. We can only comment on the breakfast but everyone enjoyed their meal. We had to wait about 20-25 minutes but it was worth it. Service was great also. The building is old but adds to the experience of eating there. I would highly recommend this place. One... More

This restaurant was established in 1909 and came highly recommended to us. We stopped for lunch but I was not impressed. My husband had the dolphin soup bowl and I ordered the fish of the day blackened. I was quite surprised to see there was an additional $1.00 charge to have it blackened. Our lunch cost about $22. The interior... More

Drawing attention to this fabulous secret is risky but most tourists won't go anyway. It looks quirky but the food, drinks and service is marvelous. It's one of the few places open early in the morning if your looking for a nice breakfast. Lunch and dinner are awesome and the seafood, well it's right next to a marina...fresh is an... More
