“Abby the Rooster at Caroline's Cafe, Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We drank at many places while visiting Key West, but our very favorite was Caroline's Cafe due to the resident Rooster who hangs out there named Abby. Yes, a boy named Abby. He is the most beautiful Rooster and super friendly. Sometimes he's a little naughty and has to have time out for a bit, but don't worry, they'll bring him back out again. Do not miss out on meeting him during your visit. The wine and beer were good and the waitstaff was very friendly.

“Abby the Chicken was a hit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

If you like to eat on the main drag and watch the parade go by, then Caroline's is an excellent choice. The atmosphere was enhanced by Abby the Chicken who parades around the premises like a part-owner. The lettuce wraps are a healthy dinner option with generous portions and reasonable price. Service by Gracie was prompt and courteous.

“Love Caroline's!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

What a great experience!!!! My husband and I were doing the Duval Crawl and got hungry. We happened to be right in front of Caroline's and decided to give it a try. We were very pleased. Our server Gracie was wonderful- food came out quickly and she was very attentive. We talked to her a lenght- she was very friendly and kind. The food exceeded our expectations- delicious and fairly priced. This a great place to eat and if we ever get to Key West again, we will definately go back!!!!!
