Most intense cafe con leche in the free world. A real mind blower. Excellent Cuban sandwich. Quick service and the benches on the west side were shaded when we went. Highly recommend.

Local culture, food, coffee. A must go to especially during a bike ride. Nice stop. This is authentic. Be prepared to get it to go or relax on the bench outside

This was not my first Cuban sandwich from The Five Brothers, just the first one this trip. I had the ham and cheese this time. Excellent.

fabulous con leche (but not "the best"), and good midnight sandwiches. a great local spot, but beware - it's not a "Restaurant" - it really is a corner store with a deli window.

Maybe it's my Pittsburgh connection. Maybe it's my love of anything Cuban, except the Castro's, but this place is great no matter what. Breakfast here is fast, fresh and cheap. I have never been disappointed.

My husband has been trying Cuban sandwiches different places in Key West. The best so far. Traditional Cuban was right on target. My beef empanada was like my grandmother used to make. I will return on an empty stomach.

When you want to mingle with the locals this is the place. When we lived here we always got their café con leche and breakfast sandwiches on Saturdays. Family owned take out and market. Plus pastries and other Cuban treats. A can't miss when we go back to visit.

We had the pleasure of staying at a little house a block from this delightful coffee shop / sandwich shop / convenience store. Best espresso I've had in years. As you walk in, the shelves are lined with french press machines, wine, etc. Not your average convenience store. They make great Cuban sandwiches. Such a find!

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.
