“Have the Cubano for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Visiting off-season the Lime Kiln Cafe is the only option for lunch. It has all the normal luncheon fare plus some specials. My husband had the Cubano sandwich and it was delicious! I've always thought a Cuban sandwich overrated until this one. All the elements were tasty and the combo in balance and so tasty. Came back just to have this sandwich.

“Worth a trip to the island just for the burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

I was wet, cold and hungry when I happened into Lime Kiln Cafe (the smell of the food had me floating in like a cartoon character). I had the bacon burger and fries and found heaven in every bite. Fantastic. I was stuffed but sad I had finished. Defiantly go.

“Quick bites/good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The lunch special of mushroom-chicken-baguette with fries and salad.
The much raved about morning, fresh-baked donuts, are over rated...small, dense, and at a $1.00 each are overpriced.
