“What a pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

My wife and I, after traveling past this restaurant and never stopping, decided to get a take out sandwich for lunch today. What a pleasant surprise! We ordered a grilled scallop sandwich - a great assortment of favors and ingredients. A truly unique sandwich. Delicious. Be warned, though - their sandwiches are big and you might want to share, as we did. We'll be back to try more of the menu, especially the corn.

As others have written, seating is limited - mostly outdoors.

“Wonderful little place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

Stopped in for lunch after discovering this place on Tripadvisor. I ordered a wrap and have never tasted anything on a wrap so full of flavor! The roasted pork was deliciously tender and the accompaniments were perfect. It was a bit messy so stay and eat it here on an outside table. Wish I could come back and try more of the menu items! I think this is a must do in key west!

“Such a very good sandwich shop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

What a silly sounding compliment, but truely, the CORN here is one of the best delights of any food I have every tasted! Though admittedly, all the food here is very good (just the corn is such a wondrous flavor surprise). Our group ordered 5 different dishes, and they all were delicious. Menu items are mostly sandwiches and wraps of seafood, chicken or pork. Each order is placed with its own "heat" number (1 for mild, and 5 or above for hot) - I happily selected 2 which provided flavor without burning. Be aware this is counter service, with only 3 tables and1 long bench provided for onsite dining and they are all outside (so plan accordingly). Yum!

“My taste buds were singing for joy!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Everything was fabulous! I especially loved the grilled corn...the combination of flavors and spices used were spectacular...It was the best thing I ever ate...loved it! The roasted pork was moist and succulent...what was especially nice about Paseo was that we were able to walk over and eat an early dinner in our beach attire.. the price was extremely reasonable...and the food plenty...you won't be disappointed!!
