“Perfect spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Great outdoor cafe that couldn't be located better! Sit at the small covered bar perched above the street and watch the crowds go by. A busy bartender banters with the patrons while a nice crowns dines around you. Have been to Caroline's a couple times and its a favorite spot!

“Fried fish and Cuban sandwich delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

As soon as we arrived in the Keys we knew we needed to head to Duval Street for a good fish sandwich. My husband and I had been to Caroline's many years ago and well remembered the Grouper sandwiches. Mikey was our server. He did a great job taking care of us, suggesting drinks for my husband and keeping our waters full. He also helped with suggesting our entrees. The misters are great as it was quite warm that day. The fried fish sandwich was delicious and the cuban sandwich my son ordered was tasty as well. Food and service excellent, right on Duval street, outdoor seating was nice.

“Great food and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

After a long day of fishing we headed to Caroline's on Duval street for dinner. The service was outstanding (thanks Allison) and the meal was great. The bruschetta was some of the best we have ever had, the burger and cheesesteak were huge, and the key lime pie was amazing! Caroline's came highly recommended from three different locals - we recommend it as well.

“great fine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Another HOT day in the keyes. We stopped by Carolina's Cafe for lunch. The added patio misters kept us cool,while we experienced great food and service. The manager made sure to thank each and every patron in his restaurant for coming in. We even experienced "Abby" the rooster. He was a delight. DEFINATLY put Carolina's Cafe on our place to reurn to.

“a place to eat at key west”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

we drove all the way to Key West from Miami, and we were hungry upon arrival, we found Caroline's while walking around and decided to try it out while we were there and we were not disappointed. the sandwiches are large enough that i had no room for the key lime pie after, and the service was great! before leaving, the owner even came to our table to thank us for trying his Cafe, now that is service! i would definitely eat there again.
