Simply Incredible

We popped in the day before for a drink and really liked the look of the food and the staff were lovely, so we returned for dinner. I pretty much wanted to eat everything on the menu. Twice. Salmon and falafel specials were both out of this world. Great beer and ale selection. We were offered a... read more

Came here on my second trip to Key West after dining at SQ1..also known as Square One, which is owned by the same restaurant group. Im not big into vegetarian foods but I figured it was worth a visit after the good food I had at their other spot. And I am very gladI did. I had the juice of... More

We always visit The Cafe when in Key West. The food is amazing! I am not even a vegetarian! However my wife is. There are some fish options available which have all been fantastic! And the food is so good I enjoy veg options from time to time as well.

We had brunch there; daily omelette and the French toast. Both were delicious and a generous portion. Waiter was friendly, the place was clean, and it's right off Duvall Street. A nice, different find!

We had a super yummy dinner at The Cafe. The eclectic decor was charming and the staff was friendly! I'd HIGHLY recommend the spinach and artichoke dip! It had a little something in it that made it extra special. The Cafe also has a decent beer selection. Note: We went for dinner at 8:30 on a Wednesday night. The place... More

We stumbled on The Cafe looking for another restaurant . . . and so glad we did! We sampled about 6 of the appetizers and one was better than the next. We enjoyed the gyoza, veggie burger bites, polenta sticks and spring rolls. The sangria was really tasty as well. The atmosphere is very cozy and relaxing. Our waitress, who... More

1/2 block off of Duval. We were out and about at night, around 8:30 or so and wondering where to eat, when we thought about giving the side streets a try, since Duval was noisy and busy and nothing appealed. The Cafe is inside eating, but it felt good to be inside as the AC was not cold. There were... More

An eclectic restaurant with a large menu. The food is delicious and will please both meat eaters and vegetarians. Our son is vegetarian and we were happy to find this restaurant. The beer menu is unusual and robust. The pasta is great--home made. fish and clam dishes good. Dessert was good also. Easy to park on the street, but right... More

Wonderful flavours in a wide variety of delicious meals. Don't let the vegetarian element put any meat eaters off - they have plenty of seafood dishes to suit any taste including stir fries and sandwiches. Loads of craft beers and superb shakes and smoothies. Highly recommended.
