All the reviews are spot on! My favorite dish is the oxtail. My mouth is watering just thinking of it. Stationed here for 3 years with the Navy, one of the best places to get reasonably priced, delicious food. It's kinda funky, which adds to the appeal. You will not be disappointed.

If you looking for coffee and sandwiches that the locals eat, in addition to getting by on a budget.. This place will become a local staple for you. Order some sandwiches, get some coffee and reflect on the fact that your hobnobing with the locals and not shovling 4 feet of snow.

This is in a residential area, not far off Duvall. It's a grocer, coffee house and restaurant. Family owned and it shows. Great food!!

We always stop by this cute little grocery/sandwich shop when we are in Key West. We have been going here for years & every year it remains consistent. Same folks year after year! The gentleman who makes the cafe con leche is friendly & has his system down to a science. It is THE spot for locals. You know it... More

This isn't a place to linger-more a take-away, as it has only a bench and a couple of rickety chairs outside.However their 'cuban mix' sandwich was excellent- fine cuban bread and well-filled innards (meat and cheese etc).An egg and cheese cuban (cheese omelette sandwich anyone?) was also very good.The Cuban coffee is also a good response to typical American weak...

Reviews on authentic Cuban food led us to this corner cafe in a residential area of Key West. The cafe is small without any inside seating and outside seating limited to a park bench and a few chairs on the sidewalk. But the Cuban sandwiches are excellent! Definitely worth a stop for lunch or breakfast as they are open 6:00... More

We noticed The Five Brothers on another review site, and gave it a try. Good choice. We were in the market for a quick, inexpensive but authentic Cuban breakfast. Many many menu items, both vegetarian and non (making me and my meat-eating husband both very happy). He had the egg and ham sandwich, I had the pressed cheese sandwich. Both... More

Their sandwiches are a must for lunch and while all the ingredients are great, the Cuban roll is the 'icing on the cake'....... but get there early, they close at 3!

I've tried a few of the recommended spots on key west, and this is the best Cuban sandwich I've found. The bread is perfectly cooked, the roast pork is tasty, and they use the right mix of yellow mustard and pickles.
