Another great breakfast st Pepe's

We've been to Pepe's on previous visits to Key West and knew we had to go again. We went for breakfast during a vicious thunderstorm. We sat inside because of the storm. It was a little dark, but homey. The food was great as usual and they had a variety of specials. My son ordered a fruit cup... read more

Had Lunch there yesterday. Thanksgiving Sandwich for me and Blue Collar Burger for my son. Both of us ate every morsel. Libby was our server and she was terrific and attentive without the over familiarity that some Key West Servers suffer from. The spicy Cole Slaw was a true treat; unusual and delicious. This place continues to be one of... More

Fantastic as usual!! Great historic atmosphere!! PePe's is always a must when we make our yearly trip to Key West. The food is fantastic, well prepared and great flavor, there is nothing on the menu that we have tried that was not fantastic!! My husbands favorite is the oyster medley, mine would be the steak sandwich and the pork chop.... More

We stopped in for breakfast here our first morning in Key West and loved it. We sat on the patio and felt right at home. Love the décor and atmosphere and the food was good also!

My wife and son stopped in to give Pepe's a shot, after reading some good ratings on Trip Advisor. We got there at 11:45 a.m., a little early for lunch that's supposed to start at noon. After @20 minutes with coffee, some home fries, and a side of grits, we were able to order lunch (they warn you about the... More

We arrived at happy hour oysters on the half shell price. Two-for-one for fresh squeezed margaritas - delicious. Grilled yellow tail sandwich fresh & mouth watering. Black bean soup with fresh onions. Great late lunch!

We stopped in for a drink apps and dessert. The fresh lime Mojitos were gone in less than a minute and the key lime pie in four bites! I never order key lime pie as my dessert but I can't wait to go back to have it again. Not a fancy place but the food and drinks were delicious. A... More

People are friendly and food is great, gets crowded sometimes so timing is everything. Out door seating or indoor. Oysters anyway you like them and the Cuban coffee ice cream is something special.
