This is a great place to dine with the locals. And if you don't get one of their homemade fruit breads lightly grilled, you are missing out on a great treat.

We stopped in on the way to Key West. Seemed like a quirky little place. My wife got 3 HUGE banana/chocolate chip pancakes and I got a MASSIVE western omelette and home-style potatoes. It was enough food for 4 people, but we ate it all! The staff was very nice and chatted with us and the food was delicious!!

Not a big place, but the food and service was excellent. Mom had (huge) pancakes with blueberries and bananas, I had ham and eggs. The coffe was good. Our waitress has been there for like 23 years. There are only two waitresses and they worked hard and fast but we never felt rushed or ignored. Quaint little place, defiantly a... More

We walked in and there were 4 or 5 tables that needed to be cleaned before we even sat down. The banana bread that was advertised made fresh daily was taken from their freezer and heated up with what seemed to be Country Crock spread. It tasted of dryness and freezer burn. The maple syrup that was served with the... More

Having been to the Keys numerous times, I've often heard about the Wooden Spoon. One day I finally decided to try it. I stopped in for breakfast a few days before I went home and I wish I would have gone before. The pancakes were great and the atmosphere was "Keysie". Great local joint with no frills and big servings.... More

Stopped here for breakfast on the way out of town. The food was good and there was a lot of it. It's a small place with what felt like no AC but I'd still eat here again.

The food at this place was tasty and the prices were very reasonable. It was fairly close to the hotel and right on the main road.

Great local diner and hands down the best greasy spoon breakfast in my several visits to The Keys. The place was packed at 730am and we still got our orders quick and man what a breakfast. It's a LOCAL joint everyone. If you want linen and crystal for breakfast, go to that sort of place because this ain't it. But... More
