“Great food, long wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We really enjoyed the coffee and breakfast sandwiches. It took about 10 minutes to get the coffee and another 10 for the food to be ready. We took it around the corner and found a place to sit as the benches near the food area had a lot of flies due to the open garbage can sitting in the middle of it all. Suggest ordering ahead or having it delivered for the best experience.

“One of the best Cuban Sandwich in Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

The Cuban mix is off the hook and at a great price! Even better yet is the Cuban Roast Beef and Cheese. Serving is a nice size and better yet pricing is good too! Only issue is the place is small and sometime they get a little overwhelmed. The wait can be long! But they tray hard to keep up and do a great job!

“Great place to stop on your way to a jet ski adventure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Local spot with great coffee and breakfast fair. The portions are large so split the breakfast with someone or go very hungry. The line can get long with people waiting and there is not much seating.

“The place to go in Key West for cuban coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

My mother and I went out of our way to get coffee here every day during our trip to Key West. The iced cafe con leche with skim milk, no sugar, and vanilla is my favorite. It even comes with coffee ice cubes! Only complaint is that it would be nice to have indoor seating since it is so hot in the summer - only a few benches (no tables) outside in the shade. We never ate here but saw others with food that looked delicious.

“Best Iced Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I am not a coffee drinker, but was willing to walk all the way accross town for their iced mocha Cuban coffee. Everything thing here looked great, but the coffee is highly addictive. Wonderful!!
