When I see a cafe that is integrated into a gas station, I don't usually think I'm going to get great food. I'm a new resident down here, and this is apparently a fairly common arrangement.

Shorty's cafe is a must stop on the way down or even passing through key largo. They have the best coffee and food made on the spot. I stop here every time on my way down to the keys.

I had the apple, coconut, and cheese empanadas with a Cuban style coffee and it was a great way to start my day. Had to make another stop on my way out of town the next day. You should definitely check this place out.

Seriously, the best coffee I've had. Anywhere. Occasionally pick up a cuban sandwich, always excellent. Great prices on fuel.
