Neat Local Breakfast Joint...

If you like "one of a kind" diners...you'll like Wooden Spoon. My wife & I stopped here for breakfast on the way back up to the mainland. This place has personality....the folks and the foods. We had eggs/omelets....very good. Side of potatos... tasty. Biscuit done of the grill... decadent... read more

My husband and I enjoyed our breakfast immensely! The western omelette was scrumptious served with a side of seasoned potatoes and a huge biscuit. The Belgian waffle was yummy. Loved seeing all of the locals there.

Stopped here on the drive back to Miami from Key West in search of the 'old style' American breakfast / brunch. We as a family were all hungry and on arrival were a bit unsure if the place was going to tick the boxes. How wrong we were, we were greeted by a very pleasant lady who looked like she... More

This was suggested by a local for good food, friendly staff and great prices. He was right - this place was really good! The food is mostly home-cooked and made fresh every day! I was disappointed to learn that they only serve breakfast and lunch.

There was a bad odor in the place that was hard to get past. The food was fast, the service OK, and the atmosphere was nothing exceptional. I had an omelet, it was good, and 2 pancakes came with it were good too. We were not really disappointed, just an average breakfast at reasonable prices, and would eat there again.... More

We stopped there in the morning and the place was packed. We had to wait for an open table. The food was comparable to any small diner. It was priced just right and tasted good. The French toast was delicious! It was absolutely worth the value with what you get. The waitress was nice and took good care of us.... More

Ate here for breakfast on the way down to Key West and stopped for lunch on the way home. Nothing fancy but the food was very good. For breakfast the omlettes were the highlight. Biscuits and gravy were not to my liking. For lunch we had the BLT and a grilled cheese- both excellent, especially the fresh tomatoes. Give it... More
