Best Cafe con Leche in Key West. Excellent sandwiches, and breakfast dishes at a very reasonable price.

Day two of the vacation, and day one had to go to Starbucks. Try this on day two and then does the best freaking coffee I have had since I left home and making my own! Great breakfast sandwiches to go with it for a fraction of the cost of other locations. Highly recommend!

I had a latte and my husband a mocha. Both were excellent with a lot of flavor. Sat on the benches and enjoyed the day.

Excellent coffee. Some of the best I have had. It became our morning ritual to go there for Carmel Con Leche each morning. Then we discovered the egg sandwich and added that to the ritual. Highly recommend it.

I didn't have a chance to come here earlier on the trip and there was no way I was leaving Key West without a stop here. Had the bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich and was in heaven. Couldn't finish it because it was so large and very reasonable. Service was quick and everyone was very friendly. CUban Coffee Queen is... More

We rode our bikes around the island so that we could enjoy a cup of delicious Cuban Coffee. We sat on the dock and enjoyed watching the fish swim below our feet as we sipped the yummy coffee. The Cuban Coffee Queen is located at a stop on the Old Town Trolley Tour so it's worth jumping off the Trolley... More

My husband found this place while searching for open breakfast restaurants one morning. Apparently before 9am, Key West is pretty dead as the place gets cleaned and the drunks get ushered off the streets and into their hotel rooms to sleep it off. Needless to say, finding this place was a godsend. Neither of us are coffee drinkers, so I... More

One of our first stops in the morning when we visit Key West is a trip to the Cuban Coffee Queen shop. It's a stand right next to Turtle Krawls and Dante's inferno. The coffee is amazing and the two days that we went the "ice" cubes were made from frozen coffee. What an amazing touch to keep our iced... More

My last day in Key West, I decided to check out this place. SO glad I did!!! The Caliente sandwich, rice & beans and iced coffee were outstanding! I highly recommend experiencing them. I took my food and enjoyed it by the boat docks on a beautiful Key West mid afternoon. I'll definitely return for more next trip!

Stopped here for breakfast before our snorkel adventure. Food was good and coffee was hot, strong and sweet, just as a colada should be.

We serve up delicious Cuban coffee, breakfast, and lunch fare to a large following of fans here in Key West. Come in the morning for Café con Leche or a Cuban Chocolate Mocha, and make sure to grab some breakfast too. Try favorites such as our Key Wester, which is two eggs, cheese, and your choice of ham, bacon, sausage, or pork roll sandwiched between two delicious pieces of pressed Cuban bread. It’s fantastic!Are you ready for lunch? Try our Famous Tuna Burger, our Turkey Club, or the Havana Rice & Beans. If you want to go lighter, order one of our freshly made salads or one of our delicious smoothies made with sweet tropical fruits.We also deliver! Cuban Coffee Queen is open every day, from 6:30 until sunset. Don’t forget to grab a T-shirt or hat while you’re at Cuban Coffee Queen.
