Why support the big chains when you can support local. Ride your bike, scooter, or take a morning walk to 5 brothers. The cafe con leche is a tad sweet but it matches the hearts of those that run the business. It comes out hot and ready for your tastebuds. I would say mostly locals come to enjoy this hidden... More

Do you want a true authentic Cuban coffee? Don't go anywhere else but Five Brothers on Southard St. Great sandwiches. Great Local Atmosphere. Best coffee on the Island.

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.
