Best breakfast in the Keys

We've been going to the Keys for about 14 years now and every time we are there, we have breakfast a few times at the Wooden Spoon. We love sitting at the counter and watching the cook; Lisa and Holly are great waitresses and both have been there as long as we've been stopping in. Tables are... read more

We ate here because, like other reviewers we like to patronise traditional places like this over chain restaurants. The food and service were very good but this place was really let down by a couple of things - specifically the coffee, which was poor and served in plastic mugs! and the toilets (bathrooms) which were disgusting. So although we would... More

A big menu of standard breakfast and lunch choices, with a few local and uncommon items thrown in. A cacophany of voices, a pert and ultra efficient waitress. Cozy spacing of tables, and walls crowded with funny signs and of course wooden spoons. It felt homey, friendly, and "just folks."

A casual home local cooking eating diner with walls covered with wooden spoons and other items. We enjoyed our breakfast of scrambled eggs, ham, grits, biscuit and pancake. The waitress was very pleasant, attentive and efficient. She filled our coffee cups several times. The prices are reasonable. We will return.

The title says it all. The service was friendly and prompt, the portions were ample and delicious, and the prices were reasonable. I wasn't particularly hungry so I ordered a croissant sandwich, thinking that would be a small portion. Was I ever wrong! It was a huge and delicious egg/bacon sandwich (and I loooove sandwiches). If you're going to eat... More

No frills or fancies just plain old good food & friendly service. I always sit at the counter, the food is cooked right there in front of you. Prices are very reasonable & portions more than adequate (biggest biscuits you'll ever see). Real old style Keys diner(I don't think they have 2 dishes that match but they're always clean). They...

On our last day from the Keys we stopped at Wooden Spoon as we did not have another opportunity to visit this place. We tried but it was so very busy on a Sunday morning that we decided that we will try another day. The server was the sweetest person one can get as a server. She was very efficient... More
