Wonderful Breakfast....Great Hot Sauce!

Great place for breakfast....didn't have a chance to go back for lunch but next time for sure! Fresh, tasty and home baked poppy loaf is delish. For those who love hot sauce they make their own variety....one was so good I bought it to take home with me. A must go....

We ate breakfast here under a high recommendation. The food was okay. The bacon was rather limp and tasteless. My husband had the build your own omelet which was good. The prices are reasonable. But no refills on soda.

The locals know and this is where they go. Large portions and reasonable prices. Get there early and begin your day with an eye opener!

Get away from the revellers on Duval for a while and enjoy a quiet meal at one of Florida's oldest restaurants. From the courtyard with the tree growing in the middle, and I mean a large tree! to the interior filled with artifacts from Key West's seafaring past, Pepe's is a wonderful experience. No reservations accepted so take your chances.

This restaurant has been around since the early 1900's, so it's more of a landmark place to eat. The servers were friendly and attentive, the food was good, but the drinks were great! The key lime pie was yummy, and pairs well with a grapefruit mimosa...that's all I'm saying.

Each day they have a great breakfast special and the freshly made bread is always outstanding. Be sure to listen to your waitstaff describe what is available for the morning.

A nice cozy place for a bite to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner. Offers mostly beef options with a little seafood thrown in.

We would stop by and pick up some food and take it to Ft Zachary and eat on the picnic benches. Everything we tried was good and there were always people there. They have small outside and inside sitting areas. Service was always fast and friendly. It's worth a stop even if you get it to go like we did.

If you are looking for rustic Key West that is popular with the locals, go to Pepe's. Theyve been there since 1909! If you are looking for elegant dining, this isnt it. We go there because the food is good, and it is unpretencious. We went this time on rib night and it was terrific -- you got a great... More
