Some places are just great

After fifteen years, we finally made it back here. This was once a regular stop, when we frequented Key West. We were not at all disappointed-- there are some things you just don't want to change over time. The golden margaritas are still the best, as are the rum runners. Drinks are made with... read more

We went there because we saw the good reviews on Tripadvisor. It was a big mistake the outside sitting isn't very nice. The food is very expensive for what you get. The taste is nothing special just normal. I wouldn't go there if so would have a second change. I rather would eat at one of the restaurants at the... More

We were looking for a quick burger/sandwich before our flight and we couldn't believe how GOOD it was at Pepe's. Our waitress was great and when we told her we were in kind of a time crunch, she got our food out right away. My boyfriend had a specialty burger and I had the chicken club sandwich and it was...

It was recommended that we drop by for breakfast. So glad we did. Service was fantastic and the food even better. Great little place to stop and get a great bite to eat.

The food stays consistent. Try the specials, we had a pork omelet and the french toast special. Delicious! The service is impeccable, our coffee cups never went empty and they made sure we had everything we needed to make our meal the best. Nice reminder as to why Key West people are the best!

We stumbled upon this place while walking back to our car, after a long day walking around Key West. The food is awesome!

The food was wonderful and the servers were great. It was small and cramped and warm-of course we ate outside. I'd eat inside next time. The owner was extremely helpful. I really struggled with the four versus five, but I'd go back in a heartbeat, the food was that good.

Great food and fantastic place that is off the beaten path, in Key West. Had the yellow tail snapper wrap. Was just great. Cozy little place and everyone is friendly. Must go...

Pepe's just my all-time favorite place for breakfast. They make fresh homemade bread every day. Coconut is the best. It can sometimes get crowded, but it's a great place to hang out and have a Bloody Mary, Mimosa, we're just some of their fantastic fresh squeezed orange juice. They always have a special French toast. The service is very friendly,... More
