Great Way to Wake Up

My wife is an early riser and our B&B doesn't start serving until 8:30, so she's adopted 5 Brothers as our go-to morning coffee spot. She gets there at the 6:30 a.m. opening time and then comes and gets me up to go for my first coffee and her second. It can sort of be intimidating as there are... read more

We stayed right down the street from this little corner store on Southard. Went there just about every morning for their fabulous Cuban coffee and they had a wonderful variety of "eats". Actually they had a wonderful variety of everything...we even bought a Dominos set there. A must try are the conch fritters, they are really good!!! Don't miss this... More

We tried others but the five brothers got it right! No seating inside but there is a bench outside. Parking is a little tight but all well worth the sandwich.

Year in, year out -- it's a must-go for quick lunch in the heart of Old Town. I always order the basic Cuban sandwich, best devoured on the spot on the outside bench. Fresh toasted bread, succulent pork, tart pickles, a touch of mustard. Yum. Delicious, not too filling.

Located on Southard Street is the best burger one can get. I would compare it to a Hard Rock Cafe or a 5 guys for around $5. It's so big you can share if you don't want to attempt to eat a whole one by yourself. Be prepared it takes about 20 mins to make and they close at 3pm.... More

When we're nearby, we're stopping for coffee! Not our favorite spot in Key West, but close. And, we love the atmosphere. I get a cortadito w/ sugar. My wife gets a con leche. Then, we sit out front, drink it, and watch the world pass by. Heaven!

This place has wonderful sandwiches. We had the traditional Cuban and it was great. Locals told us it's the best place for coffee. We didn't buy any but both days we were there for sandwiches the line for coffee was huge. The staff are nice and the service was quick.

I've been wanting Bollos again for years. We were in Key West at Christmas of 2009 was told to go to 5 Brothers. They were closed, so we missed out or so we thought. Fast forward to Dec. 2015, we are staying in Islamorada and we drive down to Key West specifically to go to 5 Brothers and get Bollos.... More

fast and efficient service, delicious Cuban sandwich with pork and ham and pickle. No tables here so we ate outside on a bench. Would go again!

Great deli, and great place to grab a quick/amazing sandwich. Wife loved the Cuban and I had the roast beef, both were great.
