“Another great find off the beaten path.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Service was super friendly and the value was great. Enjoyed a nice hot cortadito and it was so delicious. They serve food but I didn't eat there cuz I'd already had dinner. Maybe tomorrow.

Cool slogan. Might even buy the t-shirt. Definitely worth the effort to find.

“excellent food, even better prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Have been going to key west for many years and always wanted to check this place out. Finally tried it and wow, the food was excellent, amazing sandwiches and wraps. Very inexpensive and the sizes of the sandwiches, well you can feed 2 people with one sandwich. The only drawback was that there was no place to sit down and eat, they could really use some small tables, we had to walk down to the marina area to find a place to sit. Other than that it was a great meal at an affordable price

“Drink the Colada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Cuban Coffee Queen is my "goto" IV drip, when I am needing some caffeine. I always drink the Colada. $2.00 worth gets one enough Colada for yourself and two other friends (2 thimble fulls of Colada a piece and I promise you it is all you need). A great value and even better picker-upper!

Seating (all outside) is somewhat limited, but if you are just drinking coffee, I have rarely found it to be a problem, as the folks move in and out rather quickly.

“GREAT as usual.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Just what you need to start the day off. Good coffee and a Key Wester Sandwich. Their Smoothies are great. Instant cure for a rough night on Duval. Can't be beat!

“Excellent coffee and sandwiches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We loved both the Cafe con Leche, and the American coffee. Sandwiches were outstanding. We didn't notice from other reviews that it is take out only, so we were initially disappointed. However, I soon realized that it was my mistake. Unfortunately, our hotel was not in the neighborhood and we could not find a place nearby to sit and eat; perhaps a few more benches would help. In any case, we all loved the food and the coffee, and that's what really matters.

Thank you so much for your review. I'm thrilled to hear you loved our coffee and sandwiches. I learned how to create authentic Cuban coffee and food during a visit to Cuba. Which sandwiches did you try? Do you have a favorite?

I hope you had a wonderful time in Key West, and I look forward to your next visit.
