Nothing fancy here...weatherbeaten simple storefront swelling with history! Stopped in for a late lunch. Nice and cool inside and a wonderfully friendly waitress who made you feel right at home. Awesome seafood Reuben...need I say more. We ate inside but there is a semi covered outside area as well don't expect anything fancy..just plain good food and service!

We went for lunch and had a great time, very tasty. My hamburger was the size of a hubcap and the beers were cheap $1.25 for a draft. Go and enjoy

We ate both meals here. It's located near historic harbor, where many tour boars are located. Service was personal & welcoming. Nice choices for breakfast. We had the Patti Melt for lunch & shared it. The homemade coconut pie was awesome!

I got the French toast special with strawberries, pineapple, and blackberries with mango cream cheese sauce. It was very good. I also got the bread of the day, coconut. Very good. I got there about 10 and there were a few tables available, but 10 minutes later there was a waiting list. Definitely a place to visit when in Key... More

Pepe's is an awesome, quaint little place with exceptional food, great service! The locals love this place and I see why. The prices are on the cheaper side for Key West yet the taste is not sacrificed! I loved that nothing I ate came out of a fryer as there is a plethora of fried food everywhere. They are located...

A frient recommended this place. My husband picked it from multiple menus I had downloaded before our trip to Key West. When we saw the outside, we almost changed our minds, but trusted our friend's recommendation. We were not disappointed. My husband had the rib special and I had the veggie plate. Everything is great, and the mixed drinks are... More

Our server was helpful and knowledgeable. It was the best meal we had while in key west. The food... More

Walked to Pepe's this morning with friends. We chose to sit outside and received prompt service. Three of us ordered the omelet special and special it was. It had many components including cheese, sausage, onions and spinach. The sausage was fabulous and the omelets vanished in no time flat. Heading back tomorrow for the blueberry pancakes which looked amazing!

Pepe's is certainly rustic but the service and food were fantastic. I'd highly recommend the french toast and omelet special.
