I need to start by saying that we used to LOVE Pepe's! We were introduced to it by a musician friend and have always returned....until now. The atmosphere is Key West Rustic and the waitstaff friendly and sweet. This is no reflection on them. I ordered something that I love but seldom order while here....raw oysters. When I had finished... More

The breakfast food was excellent - go0d selection, large portions. The staff was friendly and efficient, the bar area was fun and we loved the cat lounging on the bench, acting as if he owned the place!

Pepe's has been around since (I think) 1939 and there's a really good reason for that. Fresh squeezed juices and great food, half price oysters at happy hour, Maine lobster dinner on Friday nights. Always ask about the specials also. They bake their own bread and I must say, they have the tiniest little kitchen that the just work miracles... More

We had a delicious breakfast here. The homemade bread is to die for!! I have been trying to find the recipe for the key lime bread since returning home to try to duplicate.

The line outside of the restaurant looks impressive. Be prepared to wait around 30-40 minutes for the table. They have an area where you can get a coffee or a cocktail so the time doesn’t go slowly. Since it’s a busy place they don’t really bother about service. “Hello. What do you need. Bye.” The food was decent: grits were... More

Opened in 1909, it may be the original building still 😜, this place rocked. So much character, ambiance and great food. Misty, our server was spot on recommending the Oyster trio (shucked to order) which was delicious and we had the yellow tail snapper and blue cheese crusted ribeye, hand cut, so good. It's fine dinning without any of the... More

We eat breakfast at Pepe every time we visit the island. Love the homemade breads that change daily, coconut, mango, banana walnut, all good. Will visit next time for sure.

First, we stopped in to try the key lime pie one evening. That threw the staff for a bit of a loop, but they managed to find us a booth inside. We ordered drinks and two pieces to split. The key lime pie is amazing. Look no further, because this is the key lime pie champ. The flavor was good,... More
