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.

So funny, this place is a must-go. Not for the average tourist, only if you want to drink your coffee and have a cuban sandwich, local style. The perfect place to in the morning, after a long night, to have your caffe con leiche with a yummy cuban pastry...

We are hooked on this no-frills corner grocery spot. The Cuban sandwiches keep us coming back along with the fresh coffee made while you wait.

This small/very small bodega is a great spot to get a "work mans lunch", there is a different special each day. With no tables you can sit on the benches outside or take it with you.

Not really much more to be said other than if you like your Cuban Sandwiches and Coffee, then this is the place to go. A busy place is always a good indicator, and particularly if they are locals looking for good value and decent food.

Simply the best con leche on Key West. Yes, 5 Brother’s has good sandwiches and snacks and all that, but when you want real coffee, real, non corporate-American coffee, anything but mass produced sissy styled foo foo coffee for dweebs, go to 5 Brothers and get your hands on a con leche, keep a close eye on your pulse and...

This was our last stop before leaving the Keys, and a local had steered us to it. We both got the most delicious Cuban subs to eat, some wonderful guava pastries and coffee. Really 10 stars for this place, friendly, family run and a perfect "last meal!!!!" No tables, so we ate on a bench just down from the shop.
