“It's ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Tried twice before this review. The seats are very high and not comfortable-hence it is not really a cafe. Quiches are great. Pastries are very good. Croque was so bad that I just left half of it on the table as a statement to the owner. Their version was dry. I did notice that the second time i visited the croque did not look like the one that I had a few weeks ago.

I looked around at the other customers plates and think the cheese and salad plates would be good.

Coffee very strong!

I don't want to knock a new business but this has some strong points and some weak points.

“Good things come in small packages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We found this while cruising around looking for a place to eat breakfast. Super tiny so don't bring a gang. Staff is so friendly and the food is fabulous. We had the Croque which was so delicious and something unique to us. Beautiful presentation! They have a few stools on the front porch and only a couple of tables inside. We wish we had found this place earlier in our visit so we could have tried all the wonderful looking pastries and the Quiche is supposed to be the best ever.

“Fabulous Frenchie's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

During our just completed nine day vacation in Key West we had breakfast six mornings in this small, super clean restaurant! Unbelievable Quiche dishes, best raisin bread rolls I have ever ate,
outstanding croissants, really good coffee, very reasonable prices then add a super friendly staff and you have a great dining experience.

“A wonderful new cafe in Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Frenchies is a very affordable small cafe with authentic French food. Their plain butter croissants are out of this world. Their quiche and salads are fantastic also. The owners are very friendly & talkative. They are open for breakfast and lunch and if you are in Key West, be sure to go there. You won't be disappointed!

“Authentic French, Classic Key West”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Adorable cafe - everything inside is French! Food is made to order and is a great value for the price. You can sit on the porch and people watch with a cup of coffee. The pastries are large and extremely reasonable and special requests are made to order.
