My husband grew up down the street from The Five Brothers so we go every year. This summer we planned our vacation to make sure they weren't on their vacation. We go every morning for bacon, egg and cheese on cuban bread breakfast sandwiches along with cafe con leche. We look forward to going every summer and they never disappoint.... More

This was a great spot to get a quick breakfast or lunch on the run, although you can stay and eat if you would like. We had Egg and Cheese Sandwiches on Cuban Toast. Family run and the food reflects the pride in doing so, absolutely the most kick you in the butt Cafe con Leche I ever had. I... More

This is a great place to get an authentic Cuban sandwich and some great empanadas. The prices are right, and they deliver. I wish I would have ordered more empanadas because they were so great. This was a convenient and great meal we enjoyed in Key West!

It doesn't get any better than this...not in Ft. Lauderdale, not in Miami, not even in Little Havana. Simply the best Cuban sandwich in the US. Once you go, you understand the passion, the quality, the flavor that is a Cuban sandwich. Put this on your bucket list for Key West...you'll want to eat here every day. Shame TA limits... More

We eat here on our annual visits to Key West and the quality of food and service is great. Probably the best Cuban sandwich on the island. We had one on two separate days. Both excellent. We sit on one of the benches. Locals love this place. Their coffee/espresso is in high demand and available all day. Partner also had... More

Wonderful quick stop for an espresso, cold drink and mixed Cuban. It is what is. A couple of benches in the shade to enjoy your treats after a bike ride. One sandwich was enough for two people in my family. So a great value too.

This is must do and have while in Kew West. Have a Cuban sandwich you will not be disappointed. They deliver which was great for lunch next to the pool. Ordered everyday for three days straight worth it every single time!

What a find this little corner place is. From coffee to Cuban sandwiches, everything is outstanding. The owner is friendly and a big Pittsburgh Steeler fan as well. Who would have "thunk" it? It became an everyday stop for coffee and a newspaper as well as a friendly chat about football thrown in.

First time I was here was in 2004, and it was terrific to return last December to enjoy one of their iconic and classic Cuban sandwiches and café con leche ... look forward to returning!
